Narrative Landscape

Description
This site-specific textile installation by Theresa Clowes celebrates the 100-year anniversary of Civic Center’s Greek Theater. Clowes found inspiration in the City Beautiful Movement, the Theater’s Turkey Creek sandstone structure, its Allen Tupper True murals, and the Park’s iconic place as the nucleus of Denver’s civic life. Each layer represents a quarter century of time and pays homage to Colorado’s landscape. Clowes incorporated quotes from Denver’s mayors, painted leaves collected from the Park, bottle caps symbolizing the craft beer movement, and clouds suggesting the state’s big sky into the design. The abstract, meditative installation invites viewers to slow down, look closely, and stay awhile.
