On the evening of May 11th, 2012 the Denver Theatre District in conjunction with Create Denver Week hosted "Urban Encounters," a program that brought several forward thinking creative concepts and spectacles to the streets of Denver, including "SightLine," an hour and twenty minute program of premier motion-based art by Local, National and International artists projected on downtown Denver's largest LED screen. The program started with a reception at the Spire across the street from the LED screen....many chose to stay on Spire's 9th floor deck to watch the program because of the dramatic weather that night, but the best view was from the street.
"SightLine" curators Ryan Pattie and Ivar Zeile compiled footage taken that evening by spectators of the program to create this clip, edited by Ryan Pattie, that delivers a brief view of this dynamic project. The full program of works will be available soon on Vimeo as well as a new website for our curatorial endeavors involving the LED Screen that is currently being developed.

Thanks to all of the spectators and participants that submitted footage for this document and who supported this singular project. Special thanks to the DTD and Create Denver Week for their support of our curatorial effort. And our biggest thanks go out to the artists who created work for the event or generously let us use their existing selections.......for those who could not be there to view it in person, it was simply awe inspiring!
