Colorado Abstract +10: A Survey
September 12 – November 17, 2019
The Arvada Center for Arts and Humanities is proud to partner with the Kirkland Museum of Fine & Decorative Art to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the 2009 book Colorado Abstract: Paintings and Sculpture , by Michael Paglia and Mary Voelz Chandler, a landmark publication that records the history of abstraction by artists in the state. As in the book, Kirkland Museum will explore the history and development of this artistic style in Colorado with an exhibition of two and three-dimensional artworks. The Arvada Center will exhibit a contemporary survey of the work of artists originally included in the publication and additional artists working in abstraction that also have had an impact on Colorado's art scene.
