Unclassified Site Museum is a site-specific, temporary art installation at a former RTD bus terminal in Denver. It is located on plaza of the vacant terminal on Market Street between 16th and 17th Streets in downtown Denver.
From a distance, the artwork appears to be a large, minimalist sculpture. As one gets closer, the subterranean windows reveal an archeological dig site, in which visible evidence of an ancient civilization can be seen. Within the window, architectural remnants of a multi-family residential compound are revealed. The entirety of the block-long archeological site is visible though the scale-model displayed within the Black Cube shipping container, which is also on-site.
Unclassified Site Museum is funded in part by the Bonfils-Stanton Foundation, cultivating arts and leaders for a vibrant community.
Special thanks to Continuum Partners, for the site, coordination support, and hosting Black Cube.
This project is made possible through the support of The 3D Printing Store, the Consulate General of Mexico in Denver, and Liberty Waste Management.
