McNichols Civic Center Building, Denver Arts & Venues

Details

The McNichols Civic Center Building is located in the heart of downtown Denver at the northwest corner of Civic Center Park. In 1909, the cornerstone of the building was laid, setting the foundation for the then Carnegie Library that would become a center of learning in the park. That tradition continues, as the building was reopened in 2012 as a contemporary hub for arts, culture and events for the people of Denver. This stunning Greek Revival building with its classic Corinthian columns and iconic colonnade across its front, offers new experiences in a classic space.

New Regionalisms: Contemporary Art in the Western States <p>From the group of artists represented by Denver's William Havu Gallery, art critic Michael Paglia has selected a group of contemporary artists active in Colorado and other Western states. The artists chosen for inclusion in New Regionalisms work in a wide array of stylistic modes. Interestingly, many of these artists, not only those who are interested in representation, but also those who work abstractly, typically infuse their pieces with what could be called Western content, if only because they are, by definition, Western artists living in the region. Selected artists hail from Colorado, but also from other Western states including New Mexico, Wyoming, Arizona and Texas. Considering the Western core of New Regionalisms, there are the expected contemporary takes on the landscape, the main current of art in the West for more than a century, as well as abstract work that ranges from expressionist to hard-edged, likewise trading in Western themes. </p> 144 W.
