Overview

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 Belleview light rail station features a piece entitled Thunder Over the Rockies, created by Richard Elliot and dedicated in 2006. Thunder Over the Rockies can be found at the north end of the station, through the pedestrian tunnel leading through the overpass to the larger of the two parking lots. Thunder Over the Rockies consists of several Native American mosaic designs set in brightly colored tiles on the walls and ceiling of the entire tunnel. The effect is subtle but beautiful, especially at night when the tiles reflect light and make the tunnel glow.
