There is a lot of artwork in downtown Denver thatis taken for granted. There is one large fountain near the Denver Post called “Pioneer Fountain”. It was built in 1911 by Frederick MacMonnies. It is dedicated to the founding of Colorado but is sadly ignored. Another statue called the “Yearling” shows a horse standing on a chair. But it is barely recognized by people. Another sculpture called Lau Tzu is a surreal piece of art work. Many people admire this piece more than others but some do not.There is a very peculiar sculpture called “Big Sweep” it shows a large broom and dustpan. I think of it a symbolizing that we must clen up the world. “The Seal Fountain” is also a beutiful piece of art that is notecknowleded. It shows to seals spraying water into a pool. The most ignored of sculptures is “Christopher Columbus Discoverer of America”. I think that this should be one of the most recognized statues because it commemorates the dicoverer of the New World. One last statue is “On the War Trail” itshows a Native American riding a horse on a war trail. I hope that this article will help you apreciate the artwork of Colorado and everywhere else By: Zachary Tompkins and Tre Garnett
