This summer, British artist Stuart Semple will transform Denver with a series of installations to "incite widespread happiness" in the city through art, interaction and connection. The city-wide project will be called Happy City and will feature more than five individual creative "interventions" for the public to be involved with. "Intervention" is the term being used for Semple's projects because Happy City is a result and a response to the alarming rates of depression and anxiety in our country— an attempt to disrupt people's normal routines in a positive way.
Happy City is produced by DTD and curated by NINE dot ARTS, but the partner organizations include: Black Cube, Community First Foundation, Denver Arts & Venues, Denver Union Station, Downtown Denver Partnership, McWHINNEY, Regional Transportation District (RTD), SMG/Colorado Convention Center, Sage Hospitality and VISIT DENVER.
