Vertical Arts featured in Steamboat Magazine
Last week we briefly mentioned our nine bus stop shelters that we designed along Lincoln Avenue in downtown Steamboat Springs. We were recently featured in Steamboat Magazine along with David Marshall, the talented artist who made the contemporary bus stop signs. Brandt Vanderbosch, Principal of Vertical Arts, says of the artwork, “They’re sculptural pieces, but they express regionalism.” The shelters are made from steel with corrugated metal roofs, which Marshall’s design beautifully complements. Marshall told Steamboat Magazine that “I tried to contrast the glass and steel structure with a hand-cast, rather rough and textured cast aluminum and brass.”
Marshall’s work can be seen around the world, from London to Santa Fe, New Mexico. And now you can see his contemporary designs when traveling through town. Each bus shelter has two signs and “reflect historic aspects of the community, from ‘Howelsen’ and ‘Skiing’ to ‘Ranching’ and ‘Utes’.”
What do you think of the new bus shelters?
