Description

Aqua Golf’s six whimsical sculptures in the Aqua Golf driving range lake were created by local sculptor Conor Patrick Hollis, and are part of Denver’s Public Art Program. The artwork was created and inspired by the area, and features elements from the history of the site, such as train wheels that teeter like a child’s toy and iconic water towers that sit cockeyed atop space framing structures.  The steel structures highlight the social reconstruction in the area and recognize the area’s industrial history.  The artist chose a color palette that was inspired by train cars and the sculptures will be allowed to age naturally over time, similar to the many trains still passing through the area.
