• AdAmAn Fireworks Viewed from the AdAmAn Alley

    Did you spot the fireworks above Pike’s Peak on New Year’s Eve? December 31, 2022 marked the AdAmAn Club’s 100th anniversary, and in honor of this momentous milestone, the club set off a larger display of fireworks at midnight. The Gazette captured this amazing photo of the fireworks framed by the new RTA-designed AdAmAn alley arch.

  • AdAmAn Alley Activation in Downtown Colorado Springs

    This project is right up our alley! 

    Once dark narrow spaces, relegated to delivery trucks and trash bins, urban alleys across the country are being transformed into bright, welcoming pedestrian areas through public art and creative placemaking. The first activated alley in downtown Colorado Springs is now underway between the Carlton Building and RTA’s headquarters, the historic Hibbard Building. Named AdAmAn Alley, it will celebrate the AdAmAn Club’s 100th anniversary of summiting Pikes Peak to present their annual New Year’s Eve fireworks celebration.

    AdAmAn Alley will feature murals celebrating the ecology and cultural significance of Pikes Peak, new pavement with an artistic treatment evoking Barr Trail, LED “fireworks,” and “AdAmAn Alley” gateway arch directly facing Pikes Peak.

    We’re so excited to be designing this project with the Downtown Partnership, the Cultural Office of the Pikes Peak Region, the City of Colorado Springs, and Colorado Springs Utilities, and the AdAmAn Club. The new AdAmAn Alley is expected to finish for the ringing in of 2023 New Year! Read more about this exciting project here.
