Run and Fly art piece by Joe NormanAfter conducting a public voting process to choose an artist for the Highway 93 Entryway project, the Public Art Commission has awarded the project to Joe Norman. Norman is a sculptor, based out of Loveland, CO. He is inspired by the idea that both humans and nature can exist harmoniously and are not mutually exclusive. Norman’s sculpture, titled Run and Fly, will be a set of three sculptures that show a different image depending on the viewpoint of the observer. Travelers heading northbound will see three red-tailed hawks, while those going southbound will see a group of children running together.

This piece of art will serve as an entryway into the City from the north, providing a sense of arrival to Golden. The specific location of the installation is on the west side of Hwy 93, approximately 1,600 feet north of Pine Ridge Road.
