March of Progress
Red Rocks Park and Amphitheatre
About This Piece
“March of Progress” was created to pay homage to the construction of the Red Rocks Amphitheatre in the era in which it was born, the Great Depression. A sweeping panorama, it features workers in the forefront looking over the Great Plains, the foothills of the Rockies to Red Rocks and the amphitheatre itself. It is imagined as a flowing historic overview — with the foreground figures representing the Civilian Conservation Corps.
