Ice and Water

Barbara Baer
Located in the Edora Pool and Ice Center (EPIC), 1801 Riverside Ave

Denver artist Barbara Baer created two sculptures in the newly remodeled Edora Pool and Ice Center (EPIC) lobby. Suspended from the lobby ceiling, the sculptural shapes act like a mobile, gently moving in the space with the air currents. The artwork is inspired by the uses of the building, Ice and Water.  The sculptures’ colored panels are inspired by ice crystals formed on a window pane and by a tumbling mountain stream. The artworks act as wayfinding elements. Enter on the south side with the water ripples painted across the transparent panels, and you will be heading toward the pool area of the building. Enter on the north side of the lobby with the ice crystals, and you’ll be heading in the direction of the ice rinks.
