Breckenridge’s beautiful Alpine Garden surrounds a quartz monzonite bench commissioned by Nils Nelson in remembrance of his wife, Sue Nelson. The piece, titled “Together” by New Mexico-based artist Joshua Gannon, is located along the east bank of the Blue River and comfortably seats two.
Together juxtaposes the softness of a polished surface with a rough exterior. The natural medium of quartz represents the beauty and strength of nature and the resilience of the human spirit. In Gannon’s words, “The texture, composition, and color of the stone wears the trace of time beyond everyday understanding.” We invite you to take a seat and find yourself together with the garden, the river, and the Ten Mile Range.
