If you have been driving along Speer Blvd. in downtown Denver the past couple of months you probably have noticed a new building being constructed on the Auraia Campus in a former parking lot. This is currently known as the UCD Academic Building One as is scheduled for completion in August 2014. Across the street from this in the median of Speer you may have noticed a wood sculpture as well which is part of the Biennial of the Americas. This event kicked off earlier this week and as part of it there is some art around Denver. The piece on Speer is “Mine Pavilion” which is created from beetle kill wood and will remain up through the event.
