Wynkoop St. Bridge over Cherry Creek Trail
About This Piece
CURRENT 3 by Virginia Folkestad is a site-specific, interactive light installation, which is part of a public/private collaboration between Denver Office of Cultural Affairs and LoDo Neighborhood Asssociation called LoDo Lights, created to celebrate and honor Denver’s 150th birthday.
Manny’s Bridge, site of CURRENT 3, the first LoDo Lights installation, was rebuilt twice as a railroad bridge and more recently saved for pedestrian use; thereafter known as Manny’s Bridge. It has been witness to Denver’s history and will continue to be a witness to Denver’s future.
CURRENT 3 encourages play and collaboration. Installations like this modify the way a particular space is experienced, and this installation is meant to give users of the bridge an immersive experience; a change from the usual, familiar occurrence of traveling across the bridge. Visitors become aware of their place in time and space.
