Euclid/16th Street Pedestrian Tunnel Permanent Public Art Piece
I was selected from a group of artists to design the underpass walls for a new pedestrian tunnel near the University of Colorado at Boulder campus. The pedestrian tunnel connects on street parking and fraternities to the University Memorial Center on campus. It also is a passageway for the bus stop with the highest traffic in Boulder. The tunnel walls are each eight foot in height and approximately one hundred feet long. Large relief concrete tree roots reach down through layers of river rock, sandstone, and iridescent green tile evoking the imagery of the earth being split in two.
