Pink Progression @ CVA

Pink Progression
May 31–August 18, 2018

Pink Progression addresses concepts of human rights, gender, sexual identity, feminism and inclusivity. The exhibition commemorates the solidarity established during the women’s marches of 2017 and 2018. During the marches, pink created a strong visual statement representing unity and empowerment. Over 50 local artists incorporate or respond to this hue as they explore how social interactions are affected by gender and identity expression. For more information on Pink Progression visit us here and on Instagram @pinkprogression.

"The Greenwood Village Cultural Arts program is proud to present "The Art of Lake of Fire". Colorado artists have taken topics and themes from our Village Read book, "Lake of Fire" and turned them into art. From fiery landscapes to related still-lifes, come see how local artists have interpreted our one read book."

The Greenwood Village Cultural Arts Program has partnered with the Arapahoe Libraries to present "Village Read," a program that encourages adults to read, participate in discussions and activities inspired by the book. This year, Mark Steven's "Lake of Fire," was selected for the program. Click here for a list of activities planned for August. 

Artist Panel with Michael Paglia

"How are the most vital social issues reflected in the contemporary art world, and how should an artist? Ponder these questions and more with University of Colorado Denver Art History Professor and Westword's own art critic Michael Paglia on Friday, June 30 as part of the Final Friday Artist Panel series at Sandra Phillips Gallery. Enjoy Paglia's years of expertise as he leads a lively discussion, and enjoy some of the eye-popping work the gallery currently has on display while you're at it."
