Description: The canopy design has an undulating sculptural form inspired by the Rocky Mountains. Blue skies and the Lark Bunting bird have influenced a number of the images for the canopy with colors taken from the Rocky Mountain Columbine plant. These images are juxtaposed with thin white lines that trace the Rocky Mountains and refer to the path taken by visitors to the main entrance. The colors project onto the pavement during the long hours of sunshine.
