    Margaretta Gilboy at Carson/van Straaten

    In many ways, magic realism anticipates conceptual realism, even though it's not actually an early form of the cutting-edge style. Boulder has been a center for magic realism for decades (I guess art really does imitate life), in no small part becau...

    Avenue Q brings puppetry of the people to Denver

    Most of the characters in Avenue Q are college graduates in that in-between stage -- bright and literate, finished with school but not ready for the daily grind of making a living -- and they've congregated on New York's grungy Avenue Q. Idealistic ...

    In the Dairy Center's My Name Is Rachel Corrie, a peace activist's words live on
