Pat Milbery is one of the artists behind the Denver mural, "Interwoven," which is the largest canvas that the City of Denver has ever dedicated to art. It pays homage to Denver’s mountain views, blue skies and the current journey we’re on as a community.

At two-thirds of an acre, the new street mural was painted on Bannock Street between 14th Avenue and Colfax Avenue in the heart of Denver's Civic Center.
