DENVER (CBS4)– Installation on a new outdoor sculpture at Denver International Airport began on Thursday. The art will be near the entrance of the new transit center.

The installation titled “Shadow Array” features more than 230 beetle kill spruce logs from southern Colorado.

The display will arc around the train platform and use sunlight to create light and shadow patterns.

Sculptor Patrick Marold from Denver said the project was three years in the making.

“It’s fantastic. Looking at the sculpture and seeing it take shape, the way I envisioned, and the way we worked so hard to design it, and get every detail, it’s just working perfectly,” said Marold.

The sculpture is expected to be completed next month.
