Kirkland Museum of Fine & Decorative Art is proud to represent Colorado's art history in the virtual exhibition Creating-In-Place: See what Kirkland's Colorado artists have been up to! which launches online Thursday, July 16.
Valuing the relationships built with artists represented in the collection, Kirkland Museum staff reached out to those with work on view and asked these questions during the recent shelter-in-place order:
• Are you currently making art?
• Where are you working?
• Are you doing any work that is a direct response to the pandemic?
The compiled responses encompass the museum's latest virtual exhibition, including images and quotes by artists hard at work under unusual circumstances.
"We are proud to provide socially distanced recognition for these local artists who continue to contribute to our state's always-growing tapestry of creativity," states Associate Museum Director Renée Albiston.
Featuring responses from 25 Colorado artists who currently have work on view at Kirkland Museum, Create-In-Place features painters, sculptors, printmakers and ceramists.
