Sun Spot

Sun Spot and my bike (for scale)
If you ride the Platte River Trail,  there is an interesting statue at 1241 West Bayaud that watches over  people who pass.  It's called "Sun Spot".  Sun Spot is a 20-foot tall likeness of a dog made up of 90,000 stainless steel dog tags (not the military kind).  It was set up in May, 2011 when the new animal shelter opened at the same location.

The artists who created Sun Spot are Laura Haddad and Tom Drugan.

Denver has it's share of monumental statuary scattered about the city.  This one is my favorite.

A slide show of Sun Spot being installed can be found here.
