Denver's RTD system includes a program called Art-n-Transit, where commissioned statues, murals, and art installations are included at over 30 light rail and bus stations in the Denver metro area. The Arapahoe Village light rail station features a piece entitled Nucleus, created by Michael Clapper and dedicated in 2010, making the last of the Southwest Corridor Art-n-Transit pieces to be dedicated. Nucleus specifically refers to a statue on the south side of the station entrance, along the wheelchair ramp, which consists of three interlocking but separate sandstone forms meant to convey interdependence. Nucleus could also be said to describe the entire station, as it is built as a series of circles within circles, stating with the fountain at the center and moving through the stairs and ramps until it reaches the street again.

Denver's RTD system includes a program called Art-n-Transit, where commissioned statues, murals, and art installations are included at over 30 light rail and bus stations in the Denver metro area. The Orchard light rail station features a piece entitled Orchard Memory, or the Orchard Station Orchard, created by Wopu Holup and dedicated in 2006. Orchard Memory is subtle and easy to miss; it consists of two separate parts. The first, a small orchard of fruit trees planted to surround the parking area and bus stations, could be taken as part of the natural surroundings of the area. The main part of the installation is a series of stamps in the concrete displaying ever growing tree leaves, and stainless steel birds perched on the safety fence alone the sidewalk. Orchard Memory was created to memorialize the apple orchards that once existed where the station now stands.
