Recently, my large drawing installation "The Foundation Upon Which" was juried to be in a show called Art of the State at the Arvada Center for Arts and Humanities. What an incredible honor to not only be chosen, but to have been awarded the "Museum of Outdoor Arts" Award, too! While installing the piece, the Arvada Center did a little promo video:
Art of the State 2016
Jan 21 – March 27, 2016
The Arvada Center for the Arts and Humanities is proud to present Art of the State 2016. This juried exhibition will showcase the quality, depth, and diversity of Colorado artists. Art of the State 2016 is the follow up to the critically acclaimed Art of the State: A Juried Exhibition of Colorado held in 2013. In its second iteration, Art of the State 2016 garnered 1,434 entries from 511 artists. Jurors Gwen Chanzit, Michael Chavez, and Collin Parson selected 148 works by 124 artists to represent art in Colorado being created by both emerging and established artists. The call for entry was open to all Colorado artists in all media. All three of the Arvada Center’s galleries, over 10,000 square feet, will be devoted to this celebration of art in Colorado.
