Art really spruces up a city, and that was well-illustrated by Roberta Bloom, Public Art Coordinator for the City of Aurora at the September 5 Business for the Arts meeting. Bloom talked about the process and shared the results of the incredibly creative work that culminated in public art along the R Line, which runs through Aurora on I-225.
And, when you ride the R Line, you are actually in for a double treat: you’re not stuck in any traffic, and there’s inspirational art to enjoy along the way. From Iliff Station to Fitzsimons, Aurora’s R Line Stations feature combinations of light and color, interwoven stories, history, innovation, and movement and motion; all incredible examples of public art at its best. These projects represent a partnership between the city of Aurora and the Regional Transportation District.
