2012 Rex Morgan Award

2012-08-08

Rex Morgan Tribute, giving back to the community.

In 2009, a committee was formed to commission a public art sculpture to highlight the contributions of the recipients of the Rex Morgan Award, to elevate awareness of SCFD and Mr. Morgan’s contributions and to thank the public for over 20 years of support.  The Rex Morgan Tribute Committee, comprised of members of the SCFD Board of Directors and cultural community stakeholders, implemented a selection process, fundraising and oversight of the Tribute project. 

On Wednesday October 19, 2011, the Rex Morgan Tribute sculpture, created by Colorado artist Patrick Marold, was installed on the Galleria Terrace at the Denver Arts Complex.  The 8ft tall work incorporates art and science with text elements to honor threefold: the citizens who comprise SCFD, the recipients of the Rex Morgan Award and the legacy of Rex Morgan.  Its limestone blocks represent the layered relationships of the SCFD with shadows carved into the layers of stone to reveal the shape of these relationships, merging into each other, and anchored between the solidarity of each stratum.
