This is the first ever collaboration with the Kirkland Museum and will be the largest display of their Colorado collection ever, thereby allowing enthusiasts the opportunity to see the Kirklandâ€™s vast collection in one location, at one time. The exhibit showcases over 100 Colorado artists chosen from the 350 in the Kirkland Collection â€“ a journey through Colorado art â€“ from early traditional work, to impressionist paintings, surrealism, referential abstraction, and pure abstractions. The upper galleries will showcase works on paper, and the main gallery will display primarily sculptures and works on canvas or panel.
â€œIt has been my longtime aim to organize a major presentation of Colorado art,â€ states Kirklandâ€™s Director and Curator Hugh Grant. â€œConversations with national and regional scholars have supported the judgment that Colorado ranks quite high for its art history among the 50 states. This extensive exhibition will demonstrate the sweep of artistic innovation that occurred in Colorado over 100 years and beyond.â€
