Color Field: A New Public Art Installation in Denver, Colorado

Color Field: A New Public Art Installation in Denver, Colorado | Chasing the Future | Scoop.it

Color Field, a new, permanent public art installation by artist Ivan Toth Depeña was installed May 17, 2014 at the Federal Center Station in Lakewood, Colorado, the third largest city in the Denver Metro area.

Commissioned by the Regional Transportation District (RTD) in Denver, Colorado, with assistance from the City of Lakewood, Color Field casts ever-changing patterns of color across more than 30 meters of ramps, stairs and walkways, interpreting nature’s inherent chaos and representing it as an evolving, kaleidoscopic abstraction.

Made of steel, laminated and tempered colored glass and concrete that will be back lit by LEDs at night, each of Color Fields18 “tree-like” structures was created using software that generates form algorithmically. For Depeña, this process insured that each sculpture and glass lens is unique.
