The first of its kind, this ‘activated’ alley block opened up a new LoDo, giving pedestrians the freedom to browse all of the shops and sights the passage features. Spilt Milk by George Peters & Melanie Walker greets passers by with a colossal sculpture paying homage to the venues history. As you progress down the alley you encounter a neon work by Collin Parson, lighted walkway by Jen Lewin, and an interactive sculpture by Nikki Pike and Thomas Dodds. Surrounding these creations are murals by Sandra Fettingis, ILLSON, Evan Hecox, The London Police, Chad Hasegawa, and Hyland Mather. The culmination of these works creates a feast for the eyes, and a cumulatively delightful experience.
Nine dot Arts continues to exceed my expectations. They’ve helped us tell a story through art that pieces together our project’s past, present and future. As curators their ability to identify and source artworks that are immersive and experiential has helped make Dairy Block a unique destination in Denver.
