In 1995, Denver's new Central Library opened to national acclaim integrating the Library's existing 1955 Burnham Hoyt-designed north wing. Designed by the world-renowned co-founder of postmodern architecture Michael Graves, the new Central Library construction was funded by a 1990 voter-approved bond issue. The largest library between Los Angeles and Chicago, over a million people visit the Central Library each year. More information on the Central Library's architecture and public art is available here.
