Art in the Park: Tree of Transformation

Now on Display: Experience the Wonder!


The Civic Center Conservancy is excited to announce Civic Center Art in the Park: Tree of Transformation, an interactive art installation now on display in Civic Center Park.  This temporary piece, created by Denver-based artists Nick Geurts and Ryan Elmendorf of Yetiweurks, brings art, music and light together in a unique exhibit of engineering.  The piece is in the form of a tree, with a twisting steel-pipe trunk rooted in a full-size upright piano.  When the keys are played, users will delight in the resulting harmony and illumination caused by steel drums attached to the "branches" of the tree.   The installation will remain in the park through June 2018.

 

We invite the public to stop by, play a few notes and experience the "childlike wonder" the artists intended this piece to instill in you.  The Tree of Transformation is a part of the Civic Center Conservancy's continuing work towards activating Civic Center Park as a culturally-driven location for locals and visitors alike.

The Tree of Transformation is supported by a grant from Xcel Energy Colorado, a P.S. You Are Here grant from Denver Arts & Venues and a charitable contribution from Slifer Smith & Frampton.  The Civic Center Conservancy is deeply grateful to these organizations for helping make this program possible.
