Aspen Mall Dancing Water Fountain, June 2005
Created by the late computer wizard Nick DeWolf the famed dancing fountain on the Hyman Avenue mall is a popular summer playground for children and adults. He and Travis Fulton, a local sculptor, both had an idea for the components that would make up Aspen's dancing fountain. The apparatus, located across from the Wheeler Opera House, was completed in 1979. A computer and software DeWolf built from scratch sets the fountain's pattern. "It's done everything it was supposed to do," DeWolf told the Times in on the 25th anniversary of the fountain's inception, in 2004. "I've been well-rewarded by the thanks from parents and kids. "It's not a fountain, it's a symphony." Read more about DeWolf in this Aspen Times article >>
