New RTD Lightrail station mural by Jolt, Omni, and East

The Denver Public Art Program and the Urban Arts Fund (UAF) unveils its latest mural, "Untitled," by local street artist Jolt, adjacent to the newly constructed Federal/Decatur public transportation bridge underpass.

The UAF was created in an effort to prevent graffiti vandalism by generating positive, well-tended and active community gathering spaces, and by producing opportunities for local young people to participate in diversionary art and leadership programs.

Artist Jolt (a.k.a. Jeremy Ulibarri), is a Denver native who has created both private and commercial murals in Denver and other U.S. cities. His submission for the Guerilla Garden mural was chosen and approved last year and completed in January 2012. Jolt worked with painting assistants, Omni and East, to transform the concrete bridge underpass into an alive and energetic public space for commuters and pedestrians.
