REVEALING A MEXICAN MASTERPIECE <p>Revealing a Mexican Masterpiece: The Virgin of Valvanera, showcases a painting from the DAM's Spanish Colonial art collection attributed to Cristóbal de Villalpando. This large-scale oil painting made in colonial Mexico around 1700 recently underwent conservation funded by a grant from Bank of America’s Art Conservation Project.</p> <p>The subject of The Virgin of Valvanera is European in origin and derives from a legend of a statue of the Virgin hidden in a tree during an invasion in the area of Valvanera, Spain. Villalpando is considered the most accomplished artist of the colonial period in Mexico and a pioneer in developing a unique painting style decidedly divergent from European traditions.</p> America/North_Dakota/Center

AIGA Colorado Speaker Series: Opposites Attract <p>Join us for an evening with 2017 AIGA Medalists Nancy Skolos and Tom Wedell, both of whom have been recognized for pushing the boundaries of art, design, and technology. Their most notable medium is found in poster format, which they view as a "threshold into another world." Skolos and Wedell will discuss the idea of opposites attracting with a reflection on mixing things up, delving into combinations of sensation and meaning, type and imagery, 2D and 3D, large and small, and so much more.<br /><br />Skolos is Dean of Architecture + Design and Wedell is a Senior Critic in the Department of Graphic Design at the Rhode Island School of Design. The influential work of Skolos Wedell, their interdisciplinary design and photography studio, is included in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum, and the Victoria and Albert Museum.<br /><br />Over the span of their career, their approach has evolved and their client base has expanded, but their passion for graphic communication has remained the foundation of their ever evolving vision. In addition to their studio work and teaching, Skolos and Wedell have authored two books: Type, Image, Message, published by Rockport in 2006, and Graphic Design Process, published by Laurence King in 2012 and distributed by Chronicle Books in the US, and in five other countries and languages.</p> America/North_Dakota/Center

Ganesha <p>Ganesha: The Playful Protector is developed in collaboration with the National Museum of Cambodia in Phnom Penh, which is loaning a statue of Ganesha created in the 600 to 700s that is the centerpiece of the exhibition.</p> <p>The 29-inch tall cross-legged figure, featuring human arms and an elephant head, is known as one of the earliest Ganesha icons in mainland Southeast Asia. This significant pre-Angkor artwork will be on view along with sculptures, paintings, and textiles from the DAM’s own collection of ancient to modern representations of the Hindu deity.</p> <p>Ganesha, who has been widely worshiped since the 400s, originated in India as a Hindu god who removes obstacles and is known for granting wealth and success. Ganesha has crossed both geographic and religious boundaries, inspiring numerous representations throughout the Asian subcontinent over time—all of which will be surveyed in the exhibition to showcase the iconographic changes of this popular god.</p> America/North_Dakota/Center
