This multi-media installation is comprised of imagery, music, text, and furnishings that reference the circumstances faced by immigrants and refugees subject to the DREAM Act.</p> 100 W. 14th Ave. Pkwy.

Eyes On: Jonathan Saiz <p>Jonathan Saiz's installation #WhatisUtopia is comprised of a column covered with 10,000 tiny drawings, paintings and sculptures. By definition, utopia is "an imagined community or society that possesses highly desirable or nearly perfect qualities for its citizens." The artist employs social media to spark conversation and document responses about our ability to re-envision and embody a modern utopia.

Serious Play <p><em>Serious Play: Design in Midcentury America</em> presents the concept of playfulness in postwar American design as a catalyst for creativity and innovation. This exhibition will explore how employing playfulness allowed designers to bring fresh ideas to the American home, children’s toys and play spaces, and corporate identities.</p> <p>During the 1950s and ’60s, a number of factors came together to make this bold design innovation possible. Diverse materials and manufacturing techniques opened up possibilities for new approaches to design and larger-scale production. Larger disposable income and leisure time of a growing middle class offered more possibilities for designers to help Americans discover a new way of living at home through thoughtfully designed objects. An emerging focus on child development prompted an interest in children’s furniture and placed a fresh emphasis on the importance of smart toy design. Pervasive Cold War anxiety created a desire to bring positivity and escapism into everyday spaces. Architects and designers that took advantage of all these new opportunities thrived.</p> 100 W. 14th Ave. Pkwy. Denver, CO America/North_Dakota/Center

Claude Monet: The Truth of Nature <p>The Denver Art Museum will be home to the most comprehensive U.S. exhibition of Monet paintings in more than two decades. The exhibition will feature more than 100 paintings spanning Monet's entire career and will focus on the celebrated French impressionist artist's enduring relationship with nature and his response to the varied and distinct places in which he worked.</p> <p>Monet traveled more extensively than any other impressionist artist in search of new motifs. His journeys to varied places including the rugged Normandy coast, the sunny Mediterranean, London, the Netherlands, and Norway inspired artworks that will be featured in the presentation. The exhibition will uncover Monet's continuous dialogue with nature and its places through a thematic and chronological arrangement, from the first examples of artworks still indebted to the landscape tradition to the revolutionary compositions and series of his late years.</p> <p>The presentation of Claude Monet: The Truth of Nature will explore Monet's continuous interest in capturing the quickly changing atmospheres, the reflective qualities of water and the effects of light, aspects that increasingly led him to work on multiple canvases at once. Additionally, the exhibition will examine the critical shift in Monet's painting when he began to focus on series of the same subject, including artworks from his series of Haystacks, Poplars, Waterloo Bridge, and Water Lilies.</p> 100 W. 14th Ave. Pkwy.

Norman Rockwell: Imagining Freedom <p>In the 1940s, Franklin D. Roosevelt developed a concept called the Four Freedoms—Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Worship, Freedom from Want, and Freedom from Fear to persuade Americans to support the war effort. Not immediately embraced by the American public, the administration turned to the arts to help Americans understand and rally behind these enduring ideals. Artists, writers, actors, designers, and musicians were encouraged to take on the challenge of advancing the Four Freedoms as the U.S. prepared to enter World War II, moving away from its policy of neutrality.</p> 100 W. 14th Ave. Pkwy.
