The Cherry Creek Arts Festival selected Colorado artist Bill Starke, through a competitive application process, to create the 15‐foot bronze sculpture, Tower of Man. Starke returns as an exhibiting artist at the 2012 Arts Festival (July 6, 7 and 8), marking his 10th time as a blind‐jury selected artist at the event. “We couldn’t think of a better way to show our gratitude to Cherry Creek North for over 20 years of support to the Arts Festival,” said Terry Adams, Cherry Creek Arts Festival president and CEO. “As a year‐round organization, the Festival is proud to provide the Denver community with arts experiences, education and public art that can be enjoyed 365 days a year.”
In addition to serving as Denver's premier destination for shopping, fashion, spas, restaurants, art galleries, boutiques and community events, Cherry Creek North offers visitors a number of already‐existing outdoor art pieces and spaces. CCN Business Improvement District president and CEO, Julie Bender stated, “With over 20 galleries and nearly 50 outdoor art locations, and as the home of the annual Cherry Creek Arts Festival, our District is a well‐established arts destination. On June 21 we will celebrate this through the sculpture dedication.”
