Don Coen: The Migrant Series Colorado artist Don Coen&rsquo;s The Migrant Series is a magnificent group of 15 large-scale realistic portraits of migrant farm workers. The series was painted between 1992 and 2012 and seeks to, as Coen describes it, &ldquo;raise the awareness of the average American to this overlooked, perhaps even invisible, yet vital part of our society.&rdquo; He intends it as a &ldquo;humble expression of gratitude&rdquo; for America&rsquo;s migrant workers.

Souvenir: A Fantasia on the Life of Florence Foster Jenkins A wealthy society eccentric suffered under the delusion that she was a great coloratura soprano when she was in fact incapable of producing two consecutive notes in tune. Nevertheless, she received extraordinary fame, and the climax of her career was a single concert at Carnegie Hall in 1944. Famously, it sold out in two hours. Souvenir, by turn hilarious and poignant, tells her story. America/North_Dakota/Center

RAGNARӦK: Wendy Mike De Lane Bredvik <p>Hailing from the Pikes Peak Region, visual artists Wendy Mike and De Lane Bredvik prove that art is inherently powerful and transformational. This site-specific installation features a series of future events in Norse mythology in which the death of major figures, various natural disasters, and the complete submersion of the world in water ultimately results in a fertile rebirth, reconciliation of the gods, and repopulation of the human race. Given the destructive wildfires and floods that have wreaked havoc on our region in recent years, Ragnarök serves as a cautionary tale, asking us to consider our sacred and practical responsibilities to the earth, and asks us to think of our family as something far beyond our kin and to envision a more holistic world in which our roots may literally be found in the forest.</p> America/North_Dakota/Center
