Bovine Metropolis


Back to September and our holiday in the U.S. for this mural on the Bovine Metropolis Theater in downtown Denver (CO).


The words painted between the upper and lower windows are: DANCE, DRAMA, FILM, MUSIC, POETRY.

It appears to me that the building has been there for some time, and I believe the colours used in the mural, the round shapes and flowers look very Art Nouveau-style.
According to their website, Bovine Metropolis Theater on Champa Street is "the first dedicated school and theater for improvisation in the Rocky Mountain region and teaches the art of accepting the unknown gracefully".

I'm linking to Monday mural.

  9. I agree it does look very Art Nouveau. The building has a strange name, in my mind I associated it with cows.
