Greenwood Village Public Art Guide

The City of Greenwood Village views public art as a cultural enrichment for our community. The Public Art Program contributes to the civic pride of Greenwood Village and involves residents in an active dialogue of the arts. We've organized this guide to be a self-guided tour of art at each specific site. Printed copies of the Public Art Guide are available at Greenwood Village City Hall and the Curtis Center for the Arts. 

Black Cube Project at the Curtis Center

The Curtis Center for the Arts was selected by Black Cube, a gallery without walls, to participate in their latest project, SHARESHARE is a series of 100 small-scale, bronze, sculptural text installations by Mexico City-based artist and Black Cube Fellow, Anuar Maauad. The artworks are installed on building facades throughout the Denver area. Each sculptural phrase mimics the thick, geometric, slab serif font and gold coloring of the iconic Trump Tower sign. Maauad’s series of text installations are approachable in scale and relay an uplifting message: “To share is precious, pure, and fair.” The phrase is a lyric from “I Want You” by American singer and songwriter Marvin Gaye. In doing so, the artist subtly transforms an icon synonymous with power into an artwork that symbolizes kindness. By engaging numerous public sites throughout the community and encouraging members of the community to disseminate a positive anecdote, the artist is literally acting out the message of his work. The artwork at the Curtis Center for the Arts can be found on the north side of the building. More information can be found at www.blackcube.art.
