Yet another contingent of works opens today at the McNichols Building, 144 West Colfax, where they’ll stay through April 21. And from 40 West, Traveling Route 40 will go for a long joyride, making stops at various venues all along the length of our great white way, from Golden to Aurora, through the end of April.
“How can you go wrong when you celebrate Colfax?,” asks 40 West program manager Julie Byerlein. “It’s got the architecture, the history, the characters.” And it’s all explored in the split display of fifty artworks. “Some pieces are more historical in nature — from memory lane — and there are others that speak to the urban grit of Colfax. And each and every piece could in some way trigger a conversation or story; people might identify with an image, whether they had an experience at that location, or whatever. Any one of them could lead to a discussion about the past, present and future of Colfax, and if art can trigger a conversation about the future of Colfax, isn’t that exciting?”
