Description: Trade Deficit is a trio of sculptures situated along Broadway at Lawrence, Larimer and Blake, the most significant of which is located at Blake. The sculptures are intended to create a literal and conceptual gateway for the industrial/residential neighborhood of River North, activating a main route into downtown Denver from the airport and beyond.

As an artist who lives and works in the neighborhood, Riché chose to create this series of sculptures from the metal shipping containers that are commonplace in the area. The colorful, bold artworks symbolize the history and bright future of River North, as well as Denver’s connection via commerce and culture to the rest of the world.
