ABOUT THE ARTIST

Denver, Colorado based artist David Griggs creates public art installations. His approach to design engages the physical qualities and the social context of the site. He creates work that “aspires for that act of recognition when truth is found in humor, when identity and meaning are found in metaphor.” He received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from Hamilton College in Clinton, New York in 1977. He received a Master of Fine Arts degree from the University of Colorado, Boulder in 1984.
