The CRUSH WALLS festival has been taking art to the streets from its inception, spotlighting local and international makers and acting as a catalyst for creative expression and collective gatherings.

Supernova Digital Animation Festival

Saturday September 22nd, 2018

  • 6 Downtown Denver Locations
  • Supernova Digital Animation Festival features a full day of programs that present the best in digital animation direct to the public
  • Details online at: 
This year’s Supernova advances Denver Digerati’s signature initiative in many ways, first and foremost with a large outpouring of community support through collaborations with some of the area’s finest institutions that will greatly enhance the festival from a largely two-day event to something much more expansive. The addition of a new screen at 16th and Arapahoe amplifies both the opportunity for this year’s festival as well as the reach, and should provide one of the most exciting elements in the array of brightness that already makes Supernova so unique. Artists submissions have exceeded previous year’s totals, as well as our expectations for diverse and quality works. Many new discoveries will be presented, and the competition program will be more fierce than ever.
Three additional permanent LED screens will run limited animations looping throughout the day on September 22nd, selected to fit the unique format of each screen, all just steps away from one another in the heart of Downtown Denver’s Theatre District. No other city in the world creates an all encompassing public presence for a single day via outdoor LED than Denver, Colorado through the efforts of Supernova and Denver Digerati.


2018 Doors Open Denver

Saturday & Sunday, September 22 & 23, 2018

The 14th annual Doors Open Denver, the premier event showcasing the richness and history of Denver’s built environment and promoting quality design, will take place on Saturday, Sept. 22 and Sunday, Sept. 23. Presented by the Denver Architecture Foundation (DAF), the event highlights more than 60 of Denver’s unique spaces and offers more than 58 unique Insider Tours. Headquartered at the iconic Denver Union Station, with neighborhood anchor sites at The Rossonian in Five Points and The Kirk of Highland in the Highlands, the event will feature high-profile, historic and artistic feats of architecture and design.

“While Doors Open Denver always encourages walkability, the 2018 event is pedestrian focused, encouraging attendees to walk within neighborhoods featuring a high concentration of sites, including Five Points and the Highlands," said Pauline Herrera Serianni, executive director of the Denver Architecture Foundation. “We invite the community and visitors to explore these and other neighborhoods from the inside out through our free open sites, arts and culture activities and ticketed Insider Tours.”

Twenty-one buildings that have never been part of Doors Open Denver join the list of sites this year, including MSU's Aerospace and Engineering Sciences Building, Sanctuary Downtown, North Highland Presbyterian Church, The Savoy, NINE dot ARTS and many more. These sites are part of the list of more than 60 sites that are free to explore.

Doors Open Denver also offers ticketed Insider Tours that provide engaging opportunities to view areas of Denver buildings and locales not frequently open to the public. Architects, landscape architects, historians and urban enthusiasts lead the Insider Tours. Nineteen of the 58 Insider Tours are new to Doors Open Denver this year. Insider Tours go on sale for $10 each for Denver Architecture Foundation members on August 24 and for the public on September 7. For information about becoming a member, visit Proceeds from ticket sales benefit DAF, a nonprofit organization.

About Stanley Marketplace

Stanley is no ordinary marketplace. Located in northwest Aurora on the border of Denver’s Stapleton, Stanley Marketplace is a community of like-minded businesses and people who believe in doing things differently: sustainably, creatively, with more than the bottom line in mind. The more than 22-acre, 140,000 sq. ft. indoor/outdoor space was once Stanley Aviation, where airplane ejector seats were engineered and manufactured; now it is an adaptive reuse community hub, home to 54 independently owned Colorado businesses, including twenty places to eat and drink, ten boutiques, a yoga studio, a co-working space, an events venue, and more. Today, the same innovative spirit that once filled this building has been harnessed to offer community members an urban marketplace featuring goods and services from local, independent businesses, as well as a robust community outreach program.

Opening This Month:

Reality Bytes


September 14 - October 28, 2018

  • Opening Reception: Friday September 21, 6-9pm
  • Curated by Ivar Zeile/Denver Digerati
  • Presented in Conjunction with Supernova Digital Animation Festival
Much of what we see, hear about, or experience in the world today often seems unimaginable. The steady flow of video games, virtual reality, consumer apps, computer programs and social media outlets derived from the “digital age” promote an existence that is becoming more “dreamlike” every day, often invoking complete wonderment. Reality Bytes aims to capture the zeitgeist brewing through the use of digital tools in the hands of contemporary artists. Presented by Denver Digerati, the works in the exhibition utilize their expansive laboratory operating within Denver’s public landscape over the last seven years. Reality Bytes, shown in conjunction with Supernova Digital Animation Festival, delivers a fascinating snapshot into a rapidly advancing world through some of the most imaginative artists in the field, celebrating digital animation as a wide, immersive realm unfettered by boundaries- changing how we experience art and the physical world.

Artists: Chiho Aoshima, John Butler, Emily Brout/Maxime Marion, Chris Coleman, Jeremy Couillard, Milton Croissant III, Sandrine Deumier, Elliot Dodd, Atomic Elroy, David Fodel, Jeff Jurich, Faiyaz Jafri, Bryan Leister, Michael Mallis, Keiichi Matsuda, Alex McLeod, Laleh Mehran, Brenna Murphy, Jonathan Monaghan, PNSY Studio, Mike Pelletier, Zach Tatham, Katie Torn, Jack Wedge, Barry Whittaker, Mario Zoots

Charles Livingston and Robin Hextrum

Pirate: Contemporary Art

September 14 – 30, 2018

  • Opening reception: Friday, September 14, 6-10pm
PirateDAORGCharles Livingston “Catalyst (1,000,000)” and Robin Hextrum “Hybrids” with guest artist Noelle Helmer

Charles Livingston presents Catalyst (1,000,000), a performance/installation and transparent drawings, in the main members space. His work is most often about documenting and quantifying small repeated actions over long periods of time whereby the actions result in a physical accumulation of objects or mark making. The physical actions and processes he designs are meant to trigger meditative and introspective moments that cause internal transformation and increased perceptual awareness. For Catalyst he will have cut over 1,000,000 cross section slices of rubber from thousands of bicycle inner tubes and will perform this interactive slicing ritual on opening night accompanied by music and sound.

In the associate space, Robin Hextrum presents Hybrids. For this recent body of work she portrays animals in abstracted and chaotic environments in order to comment on our unstable social, political and environmental climate. The combination of animal imagery with abstract shapes and unusual colors alludes to the often problematic relationship that forms between natural and constructed worlds. On a formal level, these paintings also explore the arbitrary divisions between representation and abstraction.

Guest artist, Noelle Helmer's series of organic paintings instill a sense of wonder over the smallest moments in the natural world that most can draw from previous experiences. Regardless of one’s capacity of attachment or distance from nature, all share some affection toward a memory or natural occurrence. Be it a freshly snowed forest, the laughter of a shallow stream and its stones, the intricacies of moss, or even just the wonder of encountering a new and strange form of plant life amongst the urban environment.

Aram Bartholl: Your Shopping Cart is Empty

Emmanuel Art Gallery

August 30 - November 17, 2018

  • Opening reception: Friday August 30th from 6-9pm

Aram Bartholl’s installations are internationally known for examining how humans consume technology and media and how technology and media consumes humans. Like his previous works, Your Shopping Cart is Empty, will highlight the tensions between the physical and digital world. This show, however, pushes deep into issues of cyber-security, trust in software, and surveillance. Your Shopping Cart is Empty highlights the place where digital selves and physical selves intersect.

Traveling from Berlin, Bartholl will be building his exhibition on site at the Emmanuel Gallery. Visitors to the gallery can expect to feel exposed to the vulnerably that our digital lives create. The show greets visitors with motion security cameras that will follow their movements from ground up. The show opening on August 30th will also feature a chalk exhibition, highlighting the false sense of online security—and proving unique and secure passwords are everything but.

The Emmanuel Art Gallery, curated and run by CU Denver’s College of Arts & Media, is housed in Denver’s oldest standing religious structure (previously a church and a synagogue) the first building in Colorado on the national historic register. Located at the historic crossroads of the original pioneer downtown, it was a true melting pot of people coming from around the world to find their fortune and create new lives.

“The Emmanuel Art Gallery is a meaningful place to host Your Shopping Cart is Empty,” says gallery director, Jeff Lambson. “This show physically manifests the new-age problems of the digital world while being in a space of historical significance that has shifted in purpose and identity as generations have passed through its doors.”

Bartholl has exhibited worldwide, including at the Museum of Modern Art New York, Skulptur Projekte Münster, Palais de Toyko Paris, Hamburger Bahnhof Berlin, Media City Biennale Seoul and Thailand Biennale.

a celebration of who we are
a recollection of where we’ve been
and a declaration of where we’re going

As tastemakers, trailblazers, and trendsetters in the arts, Leon has enjoyed an impressive amount of success as one of the most celebrated galleries within the contemporary arts scene in Denver. As we move forward, we envision a new model for the art gallery, one that will allow us to continue to benefit the artists we present as well as the community that we serve. As we skyrocket to even greater heights, we wanted to take a moment to look back at some of the artists we have worked with over the years and celebrate their remarkable work. After all, Leon is what it is today because of our artists and because of our community. Join us on Saturday, August 25th from 2pm - 11pm as we celebrate with new work and old favorites, from our family of artists.

Leon is an innovative gallery that intentionally challenges limitations. We provide an environment for artistic exploration that is free from the market pressures and economic constraints of commercial galleries.

Don Stinson: Sky Wide

1801 California

August 30 - November 9, 2018

Arts Brookfield brings works by Don Stinson to their gorgeous lobby gallery in the upcoming free exhibition SKY WIDE which opens on August 30 at 1801 California with a free reception from 4:30 to 7 p.m. Running until November 9, these paintings featuring pop culture and its reflection on the landscape will be on display through Denver Arts Week. Stinson’s panoramas of endless skies and sweeping fields serve as both detailed documentation of a changing landscape as well as commentary on a culture fixated on progress. In his works, Stinson nods to conventions of the Western painting tradition while adding a decidedly modern twist—often with a nod to pop culture.

Don Stinson is a nationally acclaimed artist with works in numerous public and private collections, including the Denver Art Museum, The Phoenix Art Museum, the Art in Embassies Program in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, and the Whitney Museum of Western American Art, among others. He is the recipient of numerous grants and awards including the Colorado Council on the Arts Director's Grant, and the Best of Show at the Coors Art Exhibit at the National Western Stock Show. Stinson received a BFA from Colorado State University and an MFA from The School of the Museum of Fine Arts Boston and Tufts University. Stinson currently lives in Evergreen and is represented in Denver by David B. Smith Gallery.

sugar bound: Suchitra Mattai

Center for Visual Art

August 30 - October 20, 2018

sbsmSalvation Islands, detail, acrylic on printed fabric, 2018

How does one define home and what does it mean to belong? Viewers are invited to consider these questions and explore how environments shape personal narratives, family histories and constructions of the self in sugar bound, Suchitra Mattai’s latest solo exhibition on view at the Center for Visual Art at MSU Denver beginning August 30. Mattai has created all new work for this exhibition, her largest to date.

Born in Guyana and based in Denver, Mattai is an internationally recognized artist who was recently nominated for the prestigious United States Artist Fellowship and is slated to participate in an upcoming international biennial in 2019.

Much of the work in sugar bound is informed by Mattai’s ancestors’ legacy of indentured servitude in the sugar fields of colonial Guyana and her own experience living in multiple countries and continents. “Connecting the dots between past and present, I seek to invent a sense of “home” – both mine and that of the indentured servant,” says Mattai. “Home becomes a conceptual space for belonging, and as an American, Caribbean, South Asian from Latin America, the processes of migration, assimilation and belonging are at the heart of my exploration.”

“sugar bound provides a profound experience for viewers to contemplate a troubling part of history that has parallels today in the way certain communities are exploited in the service of other people’s privilege,” says Cecily Cullen, Director and Curator of CVA..

Guest curated by Edward J. Sullivan, this exhibition, with more than 65 works of art, is a comprehensive selection of the New York-based artist's work from the past ten years. It presents Juarez as a dramatic interpreter of natural phenomena and abstract form. Emphasis on his many unique processes and techniques enhances our understanding of his multifaceted accomplishments.

New Territory: Landscape Photography Today presents over 100 photographs by 40 contemporary photographers who take landscape as their subject. From the spectacular to the seemingly mundane, and from celebratory to critical, these artists surprise us with their often highly experimental approach to the medium. Their work reflects their perceptions of how we live in the world today, and how the choices we make now will shape the landscapes of the future. The traditional idea of landscape photography calls to mind mountains, meadows and coastlines. Today, “landscape” photography has grown to encompass scenes that show conflicts between cultures, or between nature and civilization, as well as inspiring views of wilderness. New Territory showcases artworks that look at these features and conflicts in new ways, and that challenge viewers to contemplate our complex relationship with the landscape.

New Territory: Landscape Photography Today is organized by the Denver Art Museum. It is generously funded by the Adolph Coors Exhibition Endowment Fund, donors to the Annual Fund Leadership Campaign, and the citizens who support the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District (SCFD). Promotional support is provided by 5280 Magazine, CBS4, Comcast Spotlight, and The Denver Post.

Denver Arts & Venues Public Art Program: Westwood Park Public Art Project

Application Deadline: Monday, October 8, 2018 11:59 p.m. Mountain Time Zone

The Denver Arts & Venues Public Art Program, now in its 30th year, seeks to commission an artist or team of artists to create an original work of art for Westwood Park. The park is located at 4951 W. Kentucky Ave in Denver’s Westwood neighborhood. The Westwood Park art selection panel has recommended a site-specific, unique work of art to be designed, fabricated and installed for the park. A requirement of this project is engaging the community in the creative process through hands-on workshops for youth and residents. The goal of the artwork is to celebrate the community of Westwood and help instill a sense of pride and ownership in the park through the creation of a timeless and permanent art installation of high artistic merit and quality.
Artist(s) should consider how the artwork will: enhance neighborhood culture; celebrate public space and promote unity and diversity. The specific locations for proposed artworks are to be determined once a short list of semifinalists are selected. This commission is open to artists or artist teams residing in the state of Colorado. The budget is approximately $55,000 USD, with a generous portion of the budget granted by The Trust for Public Land. All community engagement meetings and workshops will be held in the Westwood neighborhood.

 "Going Out of Business Sale" A Retrospective: Tom Vail | Sept 15 – Nov 11, Regional & Hoag Galleries
Vail was born in Hollywood, CA in 1946. He says in his artist statement, “Writing about my art work is an exercise I find difficult. I could go into the formal aspects of my art but the most important part is unexplainable. In the collages, a dark humor about the human condition seems to be a recurring element — the use of collage to attack bourgeois values with its own propaganda images. The kinetic photographs explore the space-time dynamics using the female figure as subject.” The images were printed using photo, silkscreen, hand-tint prints, and archival digital prints.

Contemporary Western | Sept 22 – Jan 20, 2nd Floor Foyer
This exhibit features selected works from the Sangre de Cristo Arts Center’s extensive collection of contemporary western art. We will feature well-known contemporary artists such as Donna Howell-Sickles, Paul Pletka, Fritz Scholder and R.C. Gorman. Local and regional artists including Orlin Helgoe, Terry Galusha, and Judith Pierce will also be represented.

Western Romance From the King Collection | Oct 5 – Jan 13, King Gallery
Francis King’s original donation of artworks in 1979 forms the cornerstone of the Sangre de Cristo Arts Center’s permanent collection. For nearly 40 years, Mr. King, the Sangre de Cristo Arts Center, and other generous donors have been augmenting this fabulous collection. This exhibit will feature some of the best-known names in traditional Western art, including John Clymer, Frank McCarthy, Joseph Sharpe, Gerald Cassidy, and Oscar Berninghaus.

Mendoza | Mendoza | Oct 13 – Jan 13, White Gallery
JOHN L. MENDOZA: The work of John L. Mendoza is a diary of the man and his view of life. His oil paintings and watercolors bespeak romance, nostalgia, and natural beauty. Many of his paintings display dual characteristics. They are gentle yet passionate, simple yet detailed, bold yet subtle, and concrete yet abstract. His work includes contemporary, oil, and watercolor landscapes, as well as still life, abstracts, and portraits.
DOROTHY J. MENDOZA: Exploring different media and technique has been the history of Dorothy’s paintings. Always curious to explore the various methods of artistic expression, Dorothy began painting in oils. She continued to work for years in gouche and watercolor. In 1998, she began experimenting with acrylics, merging the fluid transparent quality of watercolor with the opacity of oils and gouche. The result is exciting and vibrant paintings full of color and spirit.
