Aurora Akimbo, 2008

Expo Park, Aurora, CO

A monumental gateway sculpture for a City Park

Project Description

Expo Park is one of a series of parks that anchors the western edge of Aurora, Colorado. This monumental sculpture is a celebration of the Park system and the activities that it supports. Starting with an abstract design of the letter A, “Aurora Akimbo” cartwheels across the northern edge of the park along a major City highway. Built of cast fiberglass and steel, this bright whimsical piece follows the path of highway drivers as they enter the City of Aurora. The formal strength and physicality of the design pays homage to the activities and interests of Expo Park users.
