The Picnic by Gerald Heffernon | Stapleton Denver

The Picnic

Ellipse II (East 35thAvenue and Xenia Street)

Artist: Gerald Heffernon (Winters, CA)

Commission: $110,000

Installed: 2009

This sculpture tableau is based on classic, 18th century, European paintings about picnic themes. Instead of humans, it features four, elegant, bronze dogs lounging on a large, flat boulder as they enjoy a relaxed picnic. This combination of factors give the sculpture a pastoral, yet amusing, personality which will appeal to children and adults in this intimate neighborhood park.
