the new santa fe

While I expected Denver to be a city with plenty of free and easy natives, what I didn't expect was the incredible amount of outdoor art, so much so that Denver is being called, "the new Santa Fe." There seriously seemed to be an outdoor installation on every corner. I love that the city has made art a forefront element to Denver culture. The pictures above are from a larger-than-life sculpture outside the hotel I stayed in.
Even more intriguing than the magnitude of art was the presence of public pianos up and down 16th Street Mall in downtown Denver. Available for anyone and everyone to play, each piano was uniquely painted. Talk about putting an emphasis on the arts...
