The Idea Within


The distinctive public art of David Griggs is on display from coast to coast, across Colorado and throughout Denver, his home--in airports, universities, public buildings and a variety of community sites. What separates David and his installations from other artists in this field and their work is the research and thought that goes into each of his projects.
