ALL TOGETHER NOW

Denver Performing Arts Complex
"Inspired in part by Lawrence Argent's giant blue bear, which is within eyeshot down 14th Street, and Donald Lipski's sculpture of a toy horse on a red chair outside the Denver Central Library, this piece continues a growing playful streak in the city's public art. ""We like to see it as a kind of present for the kids of Denver but also for the kid within each of us"", Behar said. The aluminum sculpture, fabricated by a company near Beacon, N.Y., consists of two components, the most prominent a tower of oversized children's blocks that spells ""All Together Now."" Behar and Marquardt want the piece - which is painted in bright primary colors to offset the tans and browns around it, to become a landmark - especially for people attending events at the arts center.
