DENVER, Col. – The skill used to paint the walls in the River North Arts District is undeniable. A mural is a large-sized message that covers any flat surface.
Buck Adams was amazed at the amount of work that goes into these murals.
The inside is the only way to see an artistic creation.
Denver7 spoke with Adams, who is the head of the company that created the mural. Adams said, “It’s an amalgam of artwork that has been received from inmates of 32 states.”
It is made up of over 400 pieces.
Adams said that “The Statue of Liberty symbolizes the home of free people.” “So we put that behind bars on the map of the US”
This speaks for the fact that despite the amount of talent on display, most artists cannot take advantage of it. This mural conveys this message.
“Prison reform. Adams, the head of Art for Redemption, said that changes are being made to allow inmates to earn money while they are incarcerated.
This money can be used to pay restitution, child support or phone calls with friends or family, or even to help them save for their release. Adams recognizes that it is multi-layered. The mural has many layers because of the app that your phone uses to point at it.
He explained that unlocking it makes it a 3D dimension with the Statue of Liberty inside a cage with the collage of art around her.
It’s located in Denver at 3722 Chestnut Place.
