Denver Theatre District's Blue Trees Begins April 18
- An Environmental Art Installation About Global Deforestation And The Importance Of Trees To People And Their Environment
- The installation will take place in downtown Denver on the streets of The Denver Theatre District, between Speer Boulevard and 17th Street and between Lawrence Street and Stout Street
On Tuesday, April 18, 2017, Konstantin Dimopoulos' The Blue Trees, an environmental art installation about global deforestation and the importance of trees to people and their environment, will launch in The Denver Theatre District, coloring the trees lining the streets of downtown Denver, using a biologically-safe, water-based, non-permanent colorant.
The work is the first in a series of installations, collectively called Terra Firma, to be hosted by The Denver Theatre District in 2017. The Blue Trees takes a familiar urban landscape and transforms it into something surreal, unfamiliar, even uncomfortable, inviting the public to notice the presence of trees and question what occurs when our environment changes.
The aim of The Blue Trees is to generate thinking and conversation about environmental and social issues, raising social consciousness through art.
Family-friendly and free programming, scheduled throughout the month of May and hosted by The Denver Theatre District, will include musical performances, performances by local arts & culture organizations, educational lectures and wellness events.
