The lobby of the Park Central office building will be converted into a pop-up artist-in-residence studio from Nov. 12 to Dec. 17.
Studio 1515, located at 1515 Arapahoe St., will feature Adam Buehler
, an emerging artist and graduate student at the University of Colorado at Denver's College of Architecture and Planning. Buehler will work from 4 to 6 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays creating a site-specific painting for a plaza-level location in the building.
NINE dot ARTS
worked with Jones Lang LaSalle
to provide Buehler with in-kind, on-site studio space for the project.
"We are very excited to partner with NINE dot ARTS in this initiative," says JLL's Amy Vadovic, general manager at 1515 Arapahoe. "This is a unique opportunity to engage the local community and showcase Denver's incredibly talented artists."
Buehler will showcase his intuitive artistic process on the building's ground floor facing the 16th Street Mall for a behind-the-scenes look at how art is made. 1515 Arapahoe tenants, as well as the general public, are invited to witness the painting's creation, chart its progress and engage in Buehler's artistic process with the hashtag #studio1515denver
. Using his bold, expressive, geometric and abstract style, Buehler will transform a reclaimed, nearly 7-foot-wide wooden panel into a painting.
"Artist studios are becoming increasingly unaffordable in the city, and real estate developers and property managers, led by JLL, have an incredible opportunity to leverage artistic interventions to activate unused spaces and support artists beyond a check and become true arts patrons," says Martha Weidmann, CEO of NINE dot ARTS.
