    Solid Ideas - Great contemporary sculptures are on display at Havu.

    Sculpture has long been one of the specialties of the William Havu Gallery. Typically, there's a piece or two placed outside the front, plus there's a sculpture garden in the back. Right now, there's even more sculpture on display than normal, as the...

    Hear Them Roar - The Mizel Center presents a groundbreaking history of feminist art.

    An astounding thing about Simon Zalkind, the director of the Singer Gallery at the Mizel Center for Arts and Culture, is the way he turns the ridiculously modest facility into a place that's guaranteed to have an important exhibition, as it does now....

    Artbeat - Brief sketches of what's happening in the Denver art scene.

    It's so discouraging to be interested in architecture and live in Colorado. There's very little top-drawer material here to begin with -- surely not more than 1 percent of the built environment -- and demolition seems to be relentlessly picking off t...

    A Classic Returns - The Arvada Center's A Raisin in the Sun succeeds despite some character flaws.

    Lorraine Hansberry's A Raisin in the Sun originally opened on Broadway in 1959 -- before the civil-rights movement found its full momentum and at a time when, as Hansberry said, "The intimacy of knowledge which the Negro may culturally have of white ...

    Black History Speaks - Shadow Theatre's Paul Robeson restores an American giant.

    I first heard Paul Robeson's voice during the folk revival of the early 1960s, the days when Bob Dylan and Joan Baez were ascendant. Someone had put together a disc of folk songs from earlier in the century that included Robeson singing "Get on Board...

    Artbeat - Brief sketches of what's happening in the Denver art scene.

    The Viewing Room Gallery in the back recesses of the Robischon Gallery (1740 Wazee Street, 303-298-7788) has an intimate atmosphere, sort of like somebody's swank living room. But even though it's small, it's still big enough to present proper shows,...

    Formalities and Mannerisms - A Richard Serra solo anchors Robischon's dazzling salute to abstraction.

    Richard Serra is one of the few living artists who can accurately be described as a modern master. He is best known for his monumental sculptures, which are installed in public places all over the world. But Serra has also long created works on paper...

    Marriage Is a Battlefield - The Retreat From Moscow is a finely mounted look at a couple's defeat.

    If you want to put on a first-rate production, you need to start with a strong script. And given how many of these there are to choose from, I've no idea why so many half-baked plays -- ancient, creaking comedies, pretentious contemporary effusions, ...

    About Face - Denver Center's Oedipus Rex masks some of the production's power.

    I was thrilled when I first heard that the Denver Center Theatre Company intended to present Sophocles's Oedipus Rex with the powerful Bill Christ in the title role. It seemed a perfect marriage of text and actor. In fact, the company has deployed ma...

    Comic Salve - The Denver Center's Creve Coeur glows with common touches.

    During the intermission of A Lovely Sunday for Creve Coeur, I overheard some people talking in the lobby. They were trying to fit the play's characters into the familiar Tennessee Williams oeuvre. Dorothea was like the self-deluded, fragile, alcoholi...

    An Update Feels Dated - A Selfish Sacrifice fails to move beyond a pale copy of Ibsen.
