Arvada Ridge: Shane Allbritton and Norman Lee

"'Chromatic Harvest' is inspired by geometric crop rows, reinterpreted in a contemporary way," artists Shane Allbritton and Norman Lee said.

"A vibrant, kaleidoscopic effect connects Arvada's agricultural past with its dynamic present. We envision an artistic gesture that features agricultural landscapes in an array of abstracted kaleidoscopic compositions."

"This effect is presented on 'folded' ceramic steel panels, to create a lenticular effect that changes with the viewer's perspective."

"These folded panels are integrated onto the Arvada Ridge commuter rail station plaza wall and the east underpass wall."

"As viewers move by the wall, the imagery shifts between the various kaleidoscopic compositions in a moving gradient. Movement is more than a major narrative theme of this project; the viewer's own movement becomes part of their experience of the artwork, poetically grounded in Arvada's agricultural past and the transportation context of the rail station site."

Shane Allbritton and Norman Lee, artists and co-founders of RE:site in Houston, explore notions of community, identity, and narrative within the context of public space. RE:site creates dynamic, multi-layered works that exist somewhere between art, architecture, and landscape.
