“Flood of ‘65” is a site-specific painting for the new offices of Husch Blackwell. The painting was commissioned through NINE dot ARTS, art consultants for the new space. The piece continues my investigation into Denver’s relationship with the Platte River, an urban waterway that has played a major role in shaping the development of the city. In 1965, the South Platte River flooded central Denver, including the area surrounding Union Station, which led to projects in urban renewal and flood management over the coming decades that featured the river as a recreational benefit. Today Union Station is the focal point of Denver’s current urban development, including the new mixed-use building where the Husch Blackwell offices are located.
