Well-known piece of art being removed from DIA

DENVER - The fairly noticeable "Cloudscape" sculpture near Denver International Airport is being moved permanently to the Children's Museum of Denver.

That means commuters on Interstate 25 will gain the view that drivers on Pena Boulevard are losing.

Cloudscape has been on display on DIA land since 2010. Cloudscape is a series of three large-scale sculptural objects comprised of clouds perched atop steel towers reminiscent of the oil well towers, water pump, and utility towers scattered across Colorado. These playful clouds, ranging in size from 15 feet to 40 feet, were installed in 2010 through the City and County of Denver's Public Art Program and greeted travelers for the last four years. However, the project was always meant to be temporary to encourage a unique experience for travelers along Pena Boulevard.

Cloudscape will be installed in early 2015.
