Colorado Springs gets a dozen new artworks for 2022 Art on the Streets
Su Kaiden Cho, another artist from Colorado Springs, used aluminum conduit to mimic a pet tunnel in her sculpture titled Betwixt. The play is described as “humorous and somewhat playful, with a sinister feel in that you can enter the tunnel but not escape”. The $42,000 coin can be seen on the north exterior wall of UCCS Downtown at 102 S. Tejon Street.
Another mural featured in the annual exhibit is the work of Juls Mendoza of Denver. Her work focuses on cultural identity, community and social justice celebrating her heritage.
“I am who I am largely because of my Mexican and Latino heritage,” Mendoza told the Downtown Partnership. “Therefore, incorporating my heritage into my art is meaningful to me, and I think it’s also meaningful to those who can relate to that sentiment.”
