This week, I've been enjoying some of my favorite outdoor areas in the city, one of which is Commons Park.
It's wonderful to have a park like this right in the heart of the city, a bit of a break from the hustle and bustle, while connecting downtown with the highlands.
The South Platte River runs through Commons, and while standing in the center of the park, there are no shortage of amazing views of the city. It's a wonderful location to check out fireworks shows that happen throughout the year as well.
This summer, there's been an added treat, as stunning sculptures by artist Jorge Marìn have been displayed in the area.
Jorge Marín is a Mexican sculptor and painter. He has been an active figure in the contemporary art world for the last 25 years. He began to sculpt ceramic in the early 1980s. Bronze has been his preferred material for the last ten years. His work often depicts horses, centaurs, garudas, children, madonnas, acrobats, along with elements such as spheres, masks, arrows, boats and scales. These concepts are consistent with recurring themes such as reflection and balance.
The pieces featured here were previously at the San Antonio Botanical Gardens, and the original pieces are along the Paseo de la Reforma in Mexico City.
Living in the city is divine, but when I need a bit of quiet/natural vibe and don't want to go too far from home, I tend to come here.
