About the Book
This exhibition upholds the Arvada Center's commitment to supporting Colorado artists. The statewide juried process garnered 1,635 entries from 588 entrants representing all media. Selections were made by Arvada Center Exhibition Manager and Curator, Collin Parson, and Clyfford Still Museum Director, Dean Sobel. Parson and Sobel chose 191 works by 160 artists that represent the quality, depth and diversity of art being created in the state by emerging and established artists. This exhibition demonstrates that Colorado's artistic community is relevant and thriving.
Since its opening in July 1976, the award winning Arvada Center for the Arts and Humanities has grown to become one of the nation's largest multidisciplinary arts centers, devoted to all aspects of the arts and generously supported in part by the City of Arvada and by the Scientific & Cultural Facilities District (SCFD). The Galleries at the Arvada Center host over 12 Exhibitions per year, with a focus on regional artists.
