Happy *New* Year!

Welcome to 2013!

The Arvada Center is ready to tackle 2013 with a new art exhibition, a new children’s theater musical,  a new teen Theater Academy, and new education classes!

Art of the State: A Juried Exhibition of Colorado

Arvada Center for the Arts and Humanities is proud to present Art of the State: A Juried Exhibition of Colorado. This statewide juried exhibition garnered 1,635 entries from 588 artists living and working in Colorado. Selections were made by Arvada Center Exhibition Manager and Curator, Collin Parson, and the Clyfford Still Museum’s Director, Dean Sobel. Parson and Sobel chose 191 works by 160 artists that represent a wide range of approaches from traditional to experimental.

Emphasizing the Arvada Center’s commitment to supporting Colorado artists, this exhibition will showcase the quality, depth and diversity of works being created in the state by emerging and established artists. This juried exhibition was open to all Colorado artists in all media. For the first time, all three of the Arvada Center’s galleries, over 10,000 sq. ft., will be dedicated to one exhibition, and there will certainly be something for everyone to enjoy.

No Dogs Allowed!

Written by “Maria” from Sesame Street – Sonia Manzano"No Dogs Allowed" Childrens Theater at Arvada Center
Music by Stephan Lawrence
Lyrics by Billy Aronson

Leaving the Bronx for a day at the lake is a real treat for Iris and her close-knit, extended family. Despite Papi’s instructions to pack light, Mami brings enough food for the tri-state region and Iris sneaks in the family dog.  After all, El Exigente is part of la familia. The trip is marked by memorable misadventure, but the family finally arrives at the lake, only to discover there are … No Dogs Allowed! Humor and cooperation save the day in this warm and cheery family venture.
