'Point Gate' wowed Arvada Center patrons

CITY OF ARVADA TO INSTALL NEW SCULPTURE IN HOSKINSON PARK

“Point Gate” sculpture with members of the Arvada Arts and Culture Commission and artist Jodie Roth Cooper.

If you visited the Arvada Center last fall, it was hard to miss Jodie Roth Cooper's magnificent "Point Gate" sculpture. It sat at the top of the stairway as part of our Colorado Abstract +10 exhibitions. And thanks to the City of Arvada’s ongoing commitment to support and promote public art, it will have a permanent home in town.

“Point Gate” will be installed in Hoskinson Park, 8700 Brooks Dr., on Wednesday, May 27.

The Arvada City Council approved the purchase of the sculpture back in February. The Arvada Arts and Culture Commission recommended “Point Gate” for purchase after its positive reception at the Arvada Center.

The piece is created from corten steel, known for its durability and ability to weather over time. Cooper, who has been recognized for his engaging sculpture and installation art, encourages park visitors to engage with the sculpture and walk through its gateway-like structure.

Born and raised in London, Cooper attended Skidmore College in New York, and now makes Colorado his home. His work is influenced by the Western landscape. Cooper has another sculpture currently on view at the Arvada Center, titled “Quarter Mile Arch.” The red metal sculpture can be seen in the sculpture field fronting Wadsworth Boulevard.

The Arvada Arts and Culture Commission was created to advise the City Council on arts and culture activities. One of the goals of the City’s Cultural Master Plan is to ensure that each neighborhood is within a 10-minute walk of something artful.
