Talk to the Birds
About This Piece
Artist John King created a 16’ mild steel kinetic sculpture titled “Talk to the Birds.” The artwork is installed in a grassy triangle formed by the junction of the Cherry Creek Trail with the trail spurs from South Havana Street. The goal of the artwork is to celebrate the community, uniqueness, and diversity of the students of the Joe Shoemaker School and engage with the users, ecology, and natural environment of the Cherry Creek Trail. Councilwoman Kendra Black generously contributed to the project budget, supplemented by a grant from the Colorado Parks Foundation and a donation from the Greenway Foundation.
