Juane Quick-to-See Smith <p>Jaune Quick-to-See Smith is one of the U.S.’s finest indigenous talents and a late-career artist with extraordinary aesthetic, intellectual and curatorial achievements to her credit. Coming of age when Abstract Expressionism with its white male tenor dominated, Smith pushed back and developed a strong personal vision forged from belonging to two marginalized groups by birth (female and Native American) and one by choice (non-urban), aligning them more closely with the mainstream art world. This exhibition mines Smith’s cross-cultural experience and Salish-Kootenai identity and demonstrates the evolution of her lifelong aesthetic investigations in which she simultaneously questions and creates American history.<br /><br />In the Footsteps of My Ancestors examines themes that perennially recur in Smith’s work, including conflict, compassion, peace, the cycle of life, irony, and identity. The artist has always operated on a cusp &#8211; culturally, temporally, aesthetically, and from a gender perspective &#8211; which gives her work an attention-getting vitality, originality, and relevance. Her role in the shift toward deepening respect for Native American contemporary art cannot be understated, and her work is at once earthy, vibrant, sophisticated, and compassionate.<br /><br />Jaune Quick-to-See Smith: In the Footsteps of My Ancestors is organized by the Yellowstone Art Museum.</p> 30 W.

P.S. I Love You: A Portrait of Miss Elsie Palmer <p>From 1887-1890, railroad tycoon and founder of Colorado Springs, General William Jackson Palmer’s wife and daughters, Mary Lincoln Mellon ‘Queen’ Palmer and Marjory, Elsie, and Dorothy, were residents of Ightham Mote, a moated English manor house built around 1320. An engaging hostess, ‘Queen’ welcomed some of the most highly regarded figures of the day to the manor, including artist John Singer Sargent, actress Ellen Terry, and author Henry James, making it an intellectual hub for the elite of the Aesthetic Movement. Late in the Palmer’s tenure at the manor, Sargent painted the stunning portrait of a then 17-year-old Elsie (A Lady in White), one of the most celebrated objects in the Fine Arts Center Collection and one that has been on loan to the National Trust/Ightham Mote since early 2017.<br /><br />To fete the return of our beloved Miss Elsie Palmer, the Fine Arts Center has organized an exhibition that represents Elsie’s domestic life and surroundings both in Colorado Springs and in England. From letters and photographs to furniture, paintings, and antique ephemera, we can capture a rare glimpse of what life may have been like for the Palmer family during the late-19th and early 20th centuries.<br /><br />P.S. I Love You: A Portrait of Miss Elsie Palmer is made possible thanks to our generous collaborators: The National Trust/Ightham Mote, The Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum, and The Navigators/Glen Eyrie.</p> 30 W.

Roald Dahl’s Matilda The Musical <p>The five-time Tony Award-winning Matilda The Musical, inspired by the twisted genius of MATILDA_FULL-ART_VERTICAL_LETTERVORTEX_4CRoald Dahl, revels in the anarchy of childhood, the power of imagination, and the inspiring story of a girl who dreams of a better life. Full of catchy songs and exciting dance numbers, Matilda will captivate audiences with the story of a courageous little girl who has an extraordinary personality.</p> <p>Above all it’s an exhilarating tale of empowerment, as told from the perspective of the most powerless group of all … little children.” &#8211;The New York Times</p> <p>Matilda is a little girl with astonishing wit, intelligence, and psychokinetic powers. She’s unloved by her cruel parents but impresses her schoolteacher, the highly loveable Miss Honey. Over the course of her first term at school, Matilda and Miss Honey have a profound effect on each other’s lives. Matilda’s school life isn’t completely smooth sailing, however &#8211; the school’s mean headmistress, Miss Trunchbull, hates children and just loves thinking up new punishments for those who don’t abide by her rules. But Matilda has courage and cleverness in equal amounts, and could be the school pupils’ saving grace!</p> 30 W. Dale St. Colorado Springs, CO America/North_Dakota/Center

Virgil Ortiz: Revolution <p>For the past 15 years, Virgil Ortiz has sought a way to tell the story of the 1680 Pueblo Revolt through his artwork and simultaneously make it more relevant and engaging to the next generation by using contemporary art to blend historic events with sci-fi fantasy &#8211; think Star Wars, Prometheus, The Avengers, and Justice League. His material choices and techniques draw from the past, while his imagery is both ultramodern and futuristic.<br /><br />Ortiz’s Revolt storyline transports the viewer back more than 300 years to the historical events of the 1680 Pueblo Revolt, and then hurtles forward through time to the year of 2180, introducing a cast of characters along the way. Though the narrative will be largely based on the Revolt 1680/2180 storyline that the artist has been developing for some time, Revolution will focus on the force and fierceness of the Animals: Nevid Herd, Dogs of War, and Centaurus. Set in the future of 2180, the Animals come to the aid of the main Revolt characters: Po’Pay, Translator, Tahu, Aeronauts, Runners, and Gliders to fight their common enemy, the Castilians.<br /><br />Hailing from a family of celebrated Pueblo potters, Virgil Ortiz moves into a new era combining art, fashion, video, and film at lightning speed. Ortiz, who works and lives in Cochiti Pueblo, New Mexico, is one of the most innovative potters of his time. His exquisite works are exhibited worldwide in museum collections that include the Stedelijk Museum ‘s-Hertogenbosch, ‘s-Hertogenbosch, The Netherlands; the Fondation Cartier in Paris, France; Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, D.C., the Virginia Museum of Fine Art, Richmond Virginia; and the Denver Art Museum, Denver, Colorado.</p> 30 W.
