Between Us: The Downtown Denver Alleyways Project

Art has the power to change the way we see and interact with the world. By reimagining alleyways as artworks, Between Us: The Downtown Denver Alleyways Project aspires to soften public space and encourage city dwellers to observe the overlooked parts of our urban environment.

Between Us: The Downtown Denver Alleyways Project—funded and produced by the Downtown Denver Partnership and the Downtown Denver Business Improvement District (BID)—brings additional public art to Downtown Denver. The goal is to surprise, delight, and inspire those who experience the alleyways. The Partnership and the BID are proud to present Between Us.
