Denver Art Museum at Night, showing the Lao Tzu sculpture in foreground. The sculptor, Mark di Suvero, created this sculpture using a huge crane (Which he did from a wheel chair,) 16 tons of painted steel I-beams and arcs, and reconfigured it several times before he found it the way you see it today. The exact location wasn't chosen for the artist, as the DAM wanted to give the artist the free will to place it where he thought it would look best. That kind of freedom sent the new addition of the DAM back to the drawing board in 1996.
The title, "Lao Tzu," pays homage to the Chinese philosopher who founded Taoism. The sculpture is said to represent the yin and the yang in nature. It's weightless and heavy all at the same time, grounded, yet soaring. It does take your breath away the first time you see it. The red-orange color was specifically chosen to contrast the beautiful blues in the Colorado sky. It is much like a simple line drawing, made to fill up 30' by 36' of real space.
