Leaves of Grass
Red Rocks Park and Amphitheatre
About This Piece
Artist Tyler Aiello’s “Leaves of Grass” consists of a group of sculptures, inspired by the blades of prairie grasses and yucca leaves native to Red Rocks Park. The three oversized “blades” are fabricated from discs of durable, hand-forged, stamped steel. The discs are welded together and molded into the blade shapes, then wire-brushed and powder-coated in a patina that will complement the surrounding landscape. The angular and arched shapes will echo the rock strata in the area and the ascending ramp to the Amphitheatre. Aiello’s artwork is an elegant and harmonious addition to the Red Rocks landscape.
