four chromatic gates unveiled

In October, Executive Director Lissa Ballinger joined Koko Bayer (Herbert Bayer’s step-grandchild and a significant artist in her own right) in Denver’s recently completed Broadway Park to see the newly unveiled sculpture, four chromatic gates. Completed in 2021, the sculpture is based on Bayer’s 1982 maquette which is housed in the Kirkland Museum of Fine & Decorative Art.

four chromatic gates joins articulated wall, a bright-yellow 85-foot-tall stack of concrete beams in the Denver Design Center visible from South Broadway on the east and Interstate 25 and the light rail from the west.
