AS GUESTS ENTER The Maven hotel in Denver, Andrew Ramiro Tirado’s artwork, suspended from the lobby ceiling, is meant to literally extend a welcoming hand. Titled “The Quantifiable and the Ineffable,” the piece is made from more than 500 pounds of reclaimed decking wood and had to be delivered by a combination of U-Haul and forklift. The work is a nod to the Dairy Block’s focus on makers, craftsmanship and artistry. With “Quantifiable,” Tirado also drew inspiration from master woodworker George Nakashima, a leading innovator of 20th century furniture design. 1850 Wazee St., Denver, andrewtirado.com
