“The Quantifiable and the Ineffable,” by Andrew Ramiro Tirado.
When the Maven opens on March 29 in LoDo’s Dairy Block complex, guests will be greeted by a giant hand hanging from the ceiling. The ten-foot-long sculpture was created by artist Andrew Ramiro Tirado from strips of reclaimed wood that blend effortlessly with the panels above it.
The eye-catching piece is just the start of the amazing art collection commissioned by Sage Hospitality for this 172-room hotel; the company prides itself in putting art in all projects, including the updated Curtis. At the Maven, curating company Nine dot Arts has placed approximately 400 pieces of original work by local artists in every nook and cranny, and many of them can be viewed by the public as well as guests.
