Our Planet: Exploring our Changing Environment - Museum of Art Ft Collins, 201 S. College Ave, Ft Collins, CO 80523


The Museum of Art | Fort Collins is exhibiting Our Planet: Exploring our Changing Environment as well as glacier drawings from Trine Bumiller and Colorado wildlife and landscape photography from Michael Madrid from July 26 – September 29, 2019. “Our Planet” is a unique art exhibition created by Colorado artist Bob Doyle. He gathered 16 accomplished Colorado artists to depict how climate change is affecting our lives and environment both locally and globally. The objective of this art exhibition is to engage people on the subject of climate change by creating art that draws them into the subject visually and emotionally; connecting them to real life experiences and scientific understandings about what is going on today. This is not a typical art exhibition, but an emotionally impactful experience and learning opportunity. The artists exhibiting paintings in the show are: Cliff Austin Sina March Rick Brogan Susan McKelvy Carole Buschmann Pushpa Sunder Mehta Marcie Cohen Carol Peterson Bob Doyle Jennifer Riefenberg Susan Foster Elizabeth Rouland H. Cedar Keshet Barbara Takamine Sarah St George Elizabeth Van Ingen At the same time, in our Lynnette C. Jung-Springberg Gallery, MOA will present the work of acclaimed Denver artist Trine Bumiller with her sketchbook drawings of 14 glaciers remaining in Colorado. This body of work was created from on-site treks to all the glaciers to record, remember and respect their role in our environment. Trine is a graduate of The Rhode Island School of Design and spent a year with RISD in Rome, Italy. After graduating, she lived in New York City, working for Betty Parsons and Jack Tilton Galleries and pursuing her own studio work. Since moving to Colorado she has exhibited her work nationwide in galleries and museums. Also exhibiting in the Lynnette C. Jung-Springberg Gallery will be the animal and landscape photography of Northern Colorado by acclaimed Fort Collins photographer Michael Madrid. Since 2015, Madrid has been the International Sports Director for USA TODAY Sports Images. Madrid holds degrees in Photography and in Journalism. His professional affiliations have included the White House News Photographers Association, the U.S. Senate Press Photographers Gallery, The National Association of Hispanic Journalists, and The National Press Photographers Association where he is a former member of the Board of Directors. Executive Director, Museum of Art | Fort Collins, Lisa Hatchadoorian states, “These three timely exhibitions show how 18 Colorado artists are grappling with the effects of a rapidly changing climate and environment on the Front Range and in our beloved national parks and wild spaces around the state .” The exhibitions will open to the public at the Museum of Art | Fort Collins on Friday, July 26, and will continue through Sunday, September 29, 2019. Fun and educational hands-on educational projects for the entire family will also be in our Art.Edu.Osity Creative Space for the run of the exhibition.

Eyes On Erika Harrsch - Denver Art Museum, 150 W 13th Ave, Denver CO 80204

Eyes On: Erika Harrsch features a single contemporary installation titled Under the Same Sky… We Dream. Harrsch (who is based in New York and was born and raised in Mexico City) first exhibited Under the Same Sky… We Dream in El Paso in 2017 just as regulations became more stringent for those seeking asylum in the United States. The installation also was featured at B3: The Biennial of the Moving Image in Frankfurt, Germany, that same year. Harrsch’s installation offers a place of reflection that acknowledges the children who have crossed the border between Mexico and the U.S. The multimedia exhibition uses photography, animation, visual language, and musical performance to capture current cultural, political, and environmental issues faced by children of refugees and undocumented immigrants.


Eyes On Jonathan Saiz - Denver Art Museum, 150 W 13th Ave, Denver CO 80204

Jonathan Saiz’s installation #WhatisUtopia is comprised of a column covered with 10,000 tiny drawings, paintings, and sculptures. By definition, utopia is “an imagined community or society that possesses highly desirable or nearly perfect qualities for its citizens.” The artist employs social media to spark conversation and document responses about our ability to re-envision and embody a modern utopia. More than 10,000 artworks were made to be given away after the end of the exhibition.


La Musidora - Denver Art Museum, 150 W 13th Ave, Denver CO 80204

La Musidora is a combination of the Spanish words "la música" (music) and "la mecedora" (rocking chair). Take part in this interactive outdoor art installation located on Martin Plaza near the museum's Hamilton Building entrance. Make musical sounds by gently rocking colorfully woven chairs in tandem. This 90-foot artwork seats a total of 20 visitors at a time. This summer experience is designed by Héctor Esrawe and Ignacio Cadena of the interdisciplinary design firm Esrawe + Cadena in Mexico City.


Phantom Canyon - Denver Art Museum, 150 W 13th Ave, Denver CO 80204

Journey along the circuit of balconies, landings, and stairs within the atrium of the Denver Art Museum’s Hamilton Building to discover the fifteen digital artworks that makeup Phantom Canyon: A Digital Circuit. A moving image is comprised of a series of still images, shown in rapid succession, to produce the illusion of fluid motion. The afterimage—or ghost—of one picture stays in our eye for a fleeting moment allowing our brain to merge it with the next. When we see action on a screen, it’s created through a succession of blended phantom images. Each of the artworks on view depends on the afterimage to create the appearance of movement. As you discover each of the fifteen digital artworks in Phantom Canyon, perhaps this space will feel more like a canyon filled with scenic stops that offer a glimpse into each artist’s imagination.


The Light Show - Denver Art Museum, 150 W 13th Ave, Denver CO 80204

The Light Show at the Denver Art Museum explores physical and symbolic representations of light in art through a thought-provoking narrative. The exhibition features about 250 objects drawn from the DAM’s nine curatorial departments. The Light Show focuses on the quest by humanity and artists to understand physical light in the natural world as well as metaphorical, spiritual, and divine representations of light.
