This summer, the Biennial of the Americas put a spotlight on art from the Americas, and though its over, the beat goes on this fall with a celebration of Peruvian art. As part of that, Peruvian artist Carlos Palma has been given a residency here and sponsored by the Peruvian Consulate, the Museo de las Américas and the Art Students League of Denver.
The presence of an artist like Carlos Palma here makes a contribution not only to the arts of Colorado, but to the connection be-tween the people of Peru and the United States, says Peruvian consul general Guido Loayza. His visit opens a new chapter in the cultural relations between the two countries.
Tonight at 6:30 p.m., the Museo, 861 Santa Fe Drive, will present a lecture titled Conversación Contacto, delivered in Spanish with an English interpreter; for details, call 303-571-4401 or go to www.museo.org. And tomorrow, Palmas work along with that of Maria Elena Kaplan, Hover Montes and Kim English goes on view in The Spirit of Peru, an exhibit at the Art Students League, 200 Grant Street.
