On Friday, July 8, 2011, The Denver Post invited about 50 kids to come and take a journalism class. I was one of those kids. Our group got the chance to go on an art walk on 16th street mall. We took the shuttle down to the lightrail, then walked back to the Denver Post building.

 

The first art we saw was 'The Open Head', which is a block of granite carved into a head. It has no real title, but that is what I like to call it. It is almost cut in half, but is together at the back. There is a golden teardrop shape in the center. Then we saw a lot of other art including painted pianos, and cool architecture, and then saw some interesting street performers. We interviewed firefighters, policemen, street fundraisers, and street musicians. When it poured rain, we decided to make a break for it and ran back to the Denver Post building.
