COLORADO #11


Colorado has a lively arts community.  There is the Colorado Shakespeare Festival in Boulder, the Aspen Music Festival, Vail International Dance Festival, Boulder's Colorado MahlerFest, the Breckenridge Music Festival and the Strings Music Festival in Steamboat Springs.
Here is a list of art Museums in Colorado.
  • Denver Art Museum. 100 W. ... 
  • Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center at Colorado College. 30 W. ... 
  • Sangre de Cristo Arts and Conference Center. 210 N. ... 
  • Chapungu Sculpture Park at Centerra. ... 
  • Aspen Art Museum. ... 
  • American Museum of Western Art - The Anschutz Collection. ... 
  • Museum of Contemporary Art Denver. ... 
  • Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art.

And many movies have been shot in Colorado most notably Butch Cassidy and Sundance Kid, True Grit, and The Searchers.  There are also a number of film festivals held there.

Since this is primarily an art blog, I think I will highlight some artists who's work appeals to me who live and work in Colorado.
This image by the artist Radeaux caught my interest because the colors and the simple shape appeal to me.


But it turns out that he is primarily interested in painting birds and does so very carefully getting the anatomy and colors as close as he can.  After his wife brought home a quilt incorporating images of birds he was fascinated by the rhythms created and is now painting "quilts" of his own after researching all the many quilt patterns that incorporate images of birds.  I especially like his use of color.
