About the Exhibition
On July 29, 2017 MOA will open three new exhibitions. The exhibitions will commence with an opening reception from 6:00 - 9:00pm at MOA's indoor gallery headquarters in the Englewood Civic Center, located at 1000 Englewood Pkwy, Englewood, CO 80110. The celebration is open to the public and will include hors d'oeuvres, drinks, music by the local band Winehouse and complimentary gallery admission.
Inspire. Ignite. Innovate. explores MOA's 2017 annual theme of past, present, future. Summer Design and Build Emerging Artists examine this topic throughout the MOA indoor galleries. The result is a playful yet thoughtful exhibition that makes the viewer ponder this theme. The exhibition was created by twelve undergraduate level emerging artists that were selected to participate in MOA's annual summer Design and Build program under the direction of Master Artist, Cory Gilstrap.
MOA's Design and Build program operates in two realms, focusing on both temporary outdoor public art and indoor gallery exhibitions. "Emerging artists are provided a theme and collaboratively create a cohesive body of work under the lead of a professional artist in only eight weeks," said MOA President and Executive Director, Cynthia Madden Leitner. "Participants gain experience in collaboration and in creating commissions and public art."
Artist in Residence: Cory Gilstrap Emerging Artists: Gracie Anderson, Ian Chandler, Keenan Ferguson, Marcelo Alejandro Ramirez Garcia-Rojas, Eirianeth Claire Hays, Kaitlin Kahrs, Verónica López Arteaga, Emilie Luckett, A.J. Oehm, Therese Regonini, Nakia Smith and Ian Wagner.
Also featuring works in the Atrium Gallery by Design and Build Alumni: Tiffany Matheson, Karel Moyer and Brad Vieira.
FREE and Open to the public.
