Prickly Plume Park Public Art Project
The site of this public art project is Prickly Plume Park, the triangular park located at the intersection of Martin Luther King Boulevard and Moline Street in the Bluff Lake neighborhood of Stapleton. With the emphasis on tactile experience, this park is one of a series of neighborhood parks in Stapleton united by a sensory theme. The trees in this park will have textural foliage and bark, and ornamental understory plants will display a range of tactile features, from the soft leaves of lamb’s ear to the prickly little red yucca. The park is framed by low berms that focus the space inward and buffer it from the adjacent streets. Wide sidewalks encourage walking in and through this park. The crescent lawn provides a space for play and benches placed around its edge welcome people to linger. On the west side of this park are new neighborhoods of affordable housing.
The Project Selection Committee is interested in a dynamic three dimensional artwork that will make a coherent statement in this space. This artwork will be attentive to the character of the site and create an exceptional visual experience that will draw people to this area.
Submission deadline is Monday, June 11.
