Denver's RTD system includes a program called Art-n-Transit, where commissioned statues, murals, and art installations are included at over 30 light rail and bus stations in the Denver metro area. The Louisiana-Pearl light rail station features a piece entitled Stange Machine, created by Ira Sherman and dedicated in 2006. Gigantic metal leaves welcome you to the entrance of the machine, where several overhead kinetic sculptures can be turned by orbs around the station and light up and spin like train wheels in motion. Stange Machine is one of the few installations that requires visitors to actually enter the light rail platforms, but no ticket is required unless you intend to board a train. A unique way to pass the time waiting for the train to arrive!
