June 17 – Nov 30, 2020
Republic Plaza unveils Passing Through, a large site-specific installation by local artist Scottie Burgess, on June 17 in downtown Denver, thus bringing its public space back to life as the city starts to reopen. Filling the 17th Street side lobby corridor, Passing Through consists of multiple wooden rectangular forms that trace the ever-changing Republic Plaza silhouette experienced through its viewer’s fluid perspective, creating a dynamic arrangement that references time, the building and the lives that traverse through its spaces.
To view the piece, the public should use the 16th Street Mall entrance to Republic. As per requirements from the City and County of Denver, masks are required for visitors. Hand sanitizer is also available.
