Denver Arts & Venues announced the addition of three new works of art to its collection on Thursday. 

Two of the newest pieces of art, "A Life Cycle Story" and "Time is a Friend of the Future, Not an Enemy of the Past" can be found at the Denver Public Library's Smiley and Byers branch respectively. "Que Viva Paco" is at Paco Sanche Park in the West Colfax neighborhood. 

"We love our Denver Public Library system and can't wait for all branches to reopen. These two new additions, plus the fantastic and fitting tribute to Paco Sanchez by Carlos Frésquez, are perfectly suited to each site and I'm excited for residents to discover them," said Public Arts Program Manager Michael Chavez. 

Denver's Public Art Program was established in 1988 and directs 1% of any capital improvement project over $1 million performed by the city to be set aside for new public art, officials said. 

Currently, there are more than 60 ongoing public art projects being worked on by the program.
