Auraria Campus

Denver’s historic Auraria Campus is home to three colleges and universities: the University of Colorado Denver, Metropolitan State University of Denver and the Community College of Denver, and it’s situated in the heart of the city, between Downtown Denver and the stadium district. Due to the highly urban location of this center for higher education, it was imperative that the ArtHouse team incorporate clean, modern, cosmopolitan sophistication into the designs for the vehicular and pedestrian monument signs that demarcate the boundaries of the campus, as well as for the pageantry that decorates the public spaces between these three schools. Because of the Auraria Campus’ central location and storied history—the current student union building used to be the Tivoli Union brewery—, the ArtHouse team wanted to ensure that the monument signs were as iconic and eye-catching as the sky scrapers and towers that surround these schools.
