Known for the art that’s performed inside the various theaters and halls that make up the area, the Performing Arts Complex/ Convention Center actually has a pretty outstanding outdoor art collection. Whether it be the “I see what you mean” sculpture (the 40 foot tall Blue Bear peeking inside the building off of 14th St.), or the 60-foot tall couple dancing on the lawn in front of the complex, there’s tons of outdoor art to be seen here.

Civic Center Park is not typically known for its outdoor art, however, the whole park in and of itself is somewhat of a masterpiece. When the flower beds bloom, it turns into one of the most beautiful places in the city. Not only that, but there are various sculptures throughout the park celebrating the “Old West,” as well as a small, amphitheater type area that’s great for picnics. Plus, you’re right next to the Denver Art Museum, which is also home to some excellent outdoor art as well.
