Installation of the Common Threads art project in the median along 550/160.
Common Threads is a public art project consisting of 20 laser cut steel panels designed to adorn the median of Hwy 160 /550 in Durango, Colorado. The lead artists mixed subjects and ideas, donated by the community, into patterns and images that speak symbolically of our love of Durango. These patterns and images were laser cut from steel. Bryce Pettit and Allison Leigh Smith led this project conducting workshops, classroom outreach, public meet-ups, and online surveys. Over 400 residents, 6 schools, 7 interns, and six professional home-town artists contributed.
