Leadership Steamboat put out a call to artists to design unique benches that relate to Steamboat’s rich history that would be scattered across downtown. Three Vertical Arts’ employees were selected to have their benches fabricated for the project. Each bench tells a story about an aspect of Steamboat life. One depicts the flowing Yampa River, the next an aerial ski jumper, and lastly a bench that doubles as a bike rack. When the USA Pro Cycling Challenge came through in 2013 they commissioned an additional bike bench to commemorate the event.
