Shadow Array

Hotel & Transit Center
Level 1, Surrounding RTD Train Platform

Denver artist Patrick Marold has created a large-scale installation to enhance the expansive landscape area around the train platform at the Westin Denver International Airport. The sculpture, titled “Shadow Array,” consists of 236 beetle-kill spruce logs from southern Colorado, which will create an active experience for travelers as they enter and exit the valley by train, while also providing a dynamic panorama from the hotel and public spaces to the south of the plaza. The shadows and patterns created by the sculpture will change and shift according to the seasons, daily passage of the sun and with evening lighting.
