Reflective Discourse

Denver's RTD system includes a program called Art-n-Transit, where commissioned statues, murals, and art installations are included at over 30 light rail and bus stations in the Denver metro area. The University of Denver light rail station features a piece entitled Reflective Discourse, created by John Goe and dedicated in 2006. Reflective Discourse is a series of blue metal panels that run along the wheelchair ramp up into the Park and Ride parking garage, covered in words chosen to reflect learning and education in conjunction with the station's university location. The panels continue inside the pedestrian tunnel inside of the station as well. Simple, yet inspiring.

Windswept

Denver's RTD system includes a program called Art-n-Transit, where commissioned statues, murals, and art installations are included at over 30 light rail and bus stations in the Denver metro area. The Dayton light rail station features a piece entitled Windswept, created by Christopher Weed and dedicated in 2006. Windswept is the largest and most visible of all of the Art-n-Transit installations, visible not only from the parking lot and nearby streets, but even from the opposite side of I-225 (which the station is accessible from). Windswept consists of a series of steel poles of varying heights, topped with red ceramic balls, that line the pedestrian bridges leading up to the light rail platforms. As visitors walk along the bridges, the art seems to dip and sway with them in an optical illusion conveying movement.

Troll Trouncer/Yet Another Way to Know That Nature Will Always Win

Denver's RTD system includes a program called Art-n-Transit, where commissioned statues, murals, and art installations are included at over 30 light rail and bus stations in the Denver metro area. The Nine Mile light rail station features a piece entitled Yet Another Way to Know That Nature Will Always Win, also known affectionately as Troll Trouncer, created by Atkinson Iconography Studio Limited. Troll Trouncer is located overhead, as visitors enter the pedestrian tunnel between the stairs to the station, which consists of a glowing textured metal chandelier. The piece of art shows conflict between humanity and technology, which is one of the more unique pieces on the Art-n-Transit tour!

Thunder Over the Rockies

Denver's RTD system includes a program called Art-n-Transit, where commissioned statues, murals, and art installations are included at over 30 light rail and bus stations in the Denver metro area. The Belleview light rail station features a piece entitled Thunder Over the Rockies, created by Richard Elliot and dedicated in 2006. Thunder Over the Rockies can be found at the north end of the station, through the pedestrian tunnel leading through the overpass to the larger of the two parking lots. Thunder Over the Rockies consists of several Native American mosaic designs set in brightly colored tiles on the walls and ceiling of the entire tunnel. The effect is subtle but beautiful, especially at night when the tiles reflect light and make the tunnel glow.

Orchard Memory

Denver's RTD system includes a program called Art-n-Transit, where commissioned statues, murals, and art installations are included at over 30 light rail and bus stations in the Denver metro area. The Orchard light rail station features a piece entitled Orchard Memory, or the Orchard Station Orchard, created by Wopu Holup and dedicated in 2006. Orchard Memory is subtle and easy to miss; it consists of two separate parts. The first, a small orchard of fruit trees planted to surround the parking area and bus stations, could be taken as part of the natural surroundings of the area. The main part of the installation is a series of stamps in the concrete displaying ever growing tree leaves, and stainless steel birds perched on the safety fence alone the sidewalk. Orchard Memory was created to memorialize the apple orchards that once existed where the station now stands.

Nucleus

Denver's RTD system includes a program called Art-n-Transit, where commissioned statues, murals, and art installations are included at over 30 light rail and bus stations in the Denver metro area. The Arapahoe Village light rail station features a piece entitled Nucleus, created by Michael Clapper and dedicated in 2010, making the last of the Southwest Corridor Art-n-Transit pieces to be dedicated. Nucleus specifically refers to a statue on the south side of the station entrance, along the wheelchair ramp, which consists of three interlocking but separate sandstone forms meant to convey interdependence. Nucleus could also be said to describe the entire station, as it is built as a series of circles within circles, stating with the fountain at the center and moving through the stairs and ramps until it reaches the street again.
