Luz de Denver (Light of Denver) is the most recent permanent work of art to be installed at The Plaza at Riverfront Park located at 1610 Little Raven St, Denver, Colorado. Luz de Denver is a replica of the original Wings of the City sculpture that was included as part of a temporary installation of Marin’s work in Riverfront Park in 2016. Marin is well known for his traveling wings sculptures that originate in his studio located in Mexico and are designed for public space around the world as both temporary and permanent installations. The participatory nature of the work encourages viewers to place themselves in the composition, giving the visual illusion of wings. In Marin’s words, “We give you these wings to celebrate your victories, but also to dream and conscientiously reflect your potential as a person.”
