About This Piece
Two painted wood relief murals measure 14 feet by 7 feet and 8 inches each and face each other at opposite sides of the Rotunda. They depict an abstracted view of Denver’s landmarks and symbols during the twentieth century. On the north wall “Beginning a Century” shows Denver with a low horizon, many churches, and several symbols of the City’s aim toward freedom and growth. “Ending a Millennium” on the South wall, projects Denver with a high skyline, a lot of contrails and other monuments and symbols of the City’s expansion.
