Martin Building Mural
Denver-based artists Emily Hope Dobkin and Olive Moya were selected to create a new large-scale mural, which will be prominently featured on the main level of the Martin Building when it reopens October 24, 2021. The selection followed a request for proposals process calling for submissions to create a mural telling a story of the Denver metro area’s creative scene. The new piece will serve as a beacon of welcoming to students, families, and visitors of all ages.
Creative Classes for adult audiences will begin in January 2022. These classes could include such content as weaving with organic materials, DIY LED light boxes, wheat pasting collage, drawing bodies in motion, or any other creative pursuit. Creative Classes will be held in the new Learning and Engagement Center workshop spaces in the newly renovated Martin Building, opening October 24.
