History: A 25-year fixture at old Mile High Stadium, Bucky the Bronco stands 27 feet tall, is made of iron and steel and weighs four tons. The statue made its Invesco debut in August 2001 for the new joint's first event, which came on the heels of the team's 41-year stint next door. The Ring of Fame, honoring Denver greats including John Elway, Steve Atwater, Karl Mecklenburg and Tom Jackson, encircles the facade of Level 5 and is visible from every seat in the place. Counties Gateway Plaza, located on the west side of the stadium, is a pedestrian walkway featuring personalized bricks, marble sculptures and six monuments that represent and fly the flags of the six counties in the Denver Metro area. Public art works also are displayed at various locations outside the stadium, notably "Broncos" – with its five broncs, a mare and a colt, the sculpture is the largest in the state and was made in Italy as a gift from team owner Pat Bowlen and his family to the people of Colorado.
