Donald Lipski's "The Yearling" sets minds in
motion as viewers consider the meaning of art.. Standing Out An almost life-size, fiberglass Bronco stands on top of a bigger-than-life-size chair, staring out at Denver's ever-growing downtown. At 21 feet, the public sculpture attracts the gaze of downtown commuters and Denver Public Library visitors.
What Does It Mean? Does it remind us of a period when all things had a colossal feel? The open-ended interpretation is one of the greatest elements of the piece, which can spark interesting conversations.
Horse Sense Lipski's work has been displayed all over the country, including the White House. "The Yearling" was originally commissioned for an elementary school in New York City, then spent a year in Central Park. It was given to Denver as a permanent installation, so it will not ride away anytime soon.
