By Design - Denver Art Museum, 150 W 13th Ave, Denver CO 80204

Design is all around us. Whether it takes the form of objects and spaces, images and interactions, or systems and processes, design shapes our lives in fundamental ways. But what shapes design?


Gio Ponti - Denver Art Museum, 150 W 13th Ave, Denver CO 80204

Gio Ponti (1891–1979) was one of the most inventive Italian architects and designers of his time. For more than 60 years, Ponti’s exuberant approach found expression in public and private commissions from buildings, interiors, and furniture to glass, ceramics, and flatware. In 1928, Ponti founded the magazine Domus, and through its pages, he influenced international design for over 50 years. These diverse and prolific achievements led to Ponti’s hiring in 1965, at the age of 74, to collaborate with Denver-based James Sudler Associates on the design of a new building for the Denver Art Museum.


Norman Rockwell - Denver Art Museum, 150 W 13th Ave, Denver CO 80204

In the 1940s, Franklin D. Roosevelt developed a concept called the Four Freedoms—Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Worship, Freedom from Want, and Freedom from Fear to persuade Americans to support the war effort. Not immediately embraced by the American public, the administration turned to the arts to help Americans understand and rally behind these enduring ideals. Artists, writers, actors, designers, and musicians were encouraged to take on the challenge of advancing the Four Freedoms as the U.S. prepared to enter World War II, moving away from its policy of neutrality. Norman Rockwell, a renowned illustrator, was among those who took on the challenge to communicate visually the notions of freedom in support of the war efforts. The results were depictions of everyday community and domestic life through universally beloved subjects that helped Americans rally for the defense of public freedom.

Sparking Conversation for Contemporary Art Exploring Traditional Themes - The Carnegie Center for Creativity, 200 Mathews Street, Fort Collins, CO 80524

The Center For Fine Art Photography
(970) 224-1010

The Center is thrilled to present three exhibitions at the Carnegie Center for Creativity.  What these three exhibitions have in common is a contemporary take of traditional themes, Black and White, Abstract, and motherhood. Laura J. Bennett’s solo exhibition, Umbilicus, is a visual depiction of her life as both an artist and the mother of nine. She sculpts her own orbs from various materials and prints her own canvas backdrops. The backdrops are combined with collectibles and Bennett calls these sets, Mother Worlds.  Artists from around the country will be attending the reception and giving short artist talks beginning at 6:30 pm. Also in attendance will be the curator of the Black and White exhibition, Catherine Couturier of the Catherine Couturier gallery in Houston. Join us in celebrating art, artists, and the creative community.  Exhibition Dates | November 14 – December 15, 2018 Public + Artists’ Reception | December 7, 2018  Admission is always Free!
