  Barry Rose - Artist Quotes


     “Put Barry Rose together with terra cotta and you’ll find projects all over town, ranging from community murals to high-profile restorations. And though the Denver native works in other materials, from his own studio work in ceramics to public art in bronze, he carries on the city’s proud tradition of terra cotta architectural detailing.”
    -- Mary Voelz Chandler--RMN, Sept. 27, 2008
     “It’s hard to go any place in Denver without seeing Barry Rose. He’s at the Denver Aquarium and in the plaza west of Coors Field, He’s in the dolphin fountain adjacent to East High School and near the entrance of the Denver Public Library on Broadway. And there are many more of his artworks around the region.”

His search led to the Capital Hill studio of artist Barry Rose, Schrock remembers that bit of serendipity as ‘incredible’”.
