The Denver Theatre District, with the expertise of Denver-based arts curator and partner NINE dot ARTS, will activate a 16-block area of downtown Denver during 2017 with Terra Firma, a series of unique urban art installations. Terra Firma will feature the work of local, national and international artists with the following installations throughout the year.

Konstantin Dimopoulos’ “The Blue Trees,” an environmental art installation about global deforestation and the importance of trees to people and their urban environment. Scheduled for April and May with details about the exhibition coming in early March.

Temporary Arts Incubator, an opportunity for local artists to exhibit their work and activate the city center with unique art experiences. Scheduled to launch in June.
An internationally recognized artist whose installation will invite the audience to share in artistic creativity on the streets of downtown. Scheduled for August and September, at which time the artist will be disclosed to the public.

“After nearly a decade of providing interactive cultural experiences and events to the public, including Supernova, Murmuration, Sesh Fest and Oh Heck Yeah!, The Denver Theatre District is excited to continue our support of artists by infusing the community with these engaging and unusual installations,” said David Ehrlich, executive director, The Denver Theatre District. “Each installation will include free programming that energizes the streets, activates the public, and collaborates with local organizations, schools and partners.”

About The Denver Theatre District

The Denver Theatre District (DTD) enlivens a 16-block area of downtown Denver through interactive, immersive and experimental art and culture events and experiences. The DTD provides creatives with a downtown platform and financial support for sharing their work. The DTD is a private non-profit funded through a revenue share collected from advertising on static and LED screens located throughout the District. The DTD invests its outdoor media revenues in cultural and art-based experiences, most of which are free to the public. This model is the first of its kind, setting an example for cities nationwide in how to leverage private revenue streams to fund public art and activity.
