NEW PUBLIC ART: Putting the icing  on the cake! Let’s have a party to celebrate this new contemporary art piece – planned by Katherine Loo and Darsey Nicklasson, Developers of Blue Dot Place – that will further enliven and activate the streetscape in the 400 block of South Nevada Avenue and Downtown Colorado Springs . Blue Dot Place is downtown Colorado Springs’ newest contemporary apartments that are now available for lease. 

Giving a shout out to Manitou Art Center  for donating space for the painting of a new public art piece painted by Jerry Lapham.

 As a member of the Blue Dot creative team, Loo and Nicklasson asked Jana L Bussanich, Fine Art Solutions to translate one of the Blue Dot graphic design brand elements into a public art piece.

The finished artwork will be installed on the front of Blue Dot Place apartment building facing Nevada Avenue.

The original graphic design created by Tiffany Schmid of Schmid Studio is the inspiration behind this new public artwork. Working closely with Daniel Jensen, owner of Creative Fabrications and his CAD Designer to break out the layers of the original graphic and to determine the scale of the individual panels, Bussanich has been guiding this process since July 2015. Jensen’s crew fabricated the panels made from  1/4″ aluminum alloy. After powder coating by Creative Fabrications the panels were prepped by Lapham who created an under painting, which was then glazed over using acrylic paint with the vibrant colors of the inspirational graphic. Jerry Lapham is the creative mind behind the final interpretation of these brightly colored organic shapes that appear to twist and move like a double helix floating in the air. In this final stage of the project, the panels are being painted with automotive clear coat by Status Symbol Auto Body. The entire design includes 25 separate pieces. Totaling 119 square feet of metal the art will span an area approximately 12.5″ H x 18″ W on the front of Blue Dot Place. Jensen and his crew will install the artwork in late April 2016.
