    Open and Closed - Japanese design is showcased at the CVA, while more art censorship hits Colorado.

    The last few months have been pretty tough for the Center for Visual Art, the LoDo mini-museum operated by Metropolitan State College of Denver. In a shocking move this past spring, the school's Republican-dominated board of trustees cut the center's...

    Painted Ponies - The Central Library surveys the brief, brilliant career of Frank Mechau.

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

    As I wandered through the Bethany Kriegsman solo, aptly named Treasure Island, at the William Havu Gallery (1040 Cherokee Street, 303-893-2360), it occurred to me that the Golden-based artist just might be the most overlooked first-rate artist in the...

    Bittersweet Love - Central City Opera breathes life into Madama Butterfly.

    Central City Opera's Madama Butterfly is beautifully sung, if a little over-directed. First performed in 1904, Puccini's opera tells the story of an American officer, B.F. Pinkerton, who is stationed in Japan and enters into an exploitative union wit...

    Third Time Around - The 2005 biennial at the MCA is an absolute must.

    In 2001, Denver's Museum of Contemporary Art launched what became the first in a series of biennial exhibits. It was such a good idea, it's a wonder the Denver Art Museum didn't think of it first. Having a regular exhibition devoted to local art ...

    The Rice Stuff - Sugar energizes the Avenue's remounted Rocky Horror Show.

    My friend Julia, 24 years old, tall and striking and a one-time ballet dancer, was wearing rhinestone-encrusted stiletto heels for the occasion. When she rose to her feet, put her hands to her hips and did "The Time Warp," I knew the Avenue Theater's...

    The Good Guys' Goods - The Full Monty's striptease is more rousing than arousing.

    This was the most fun I've had at the Arvada Center -- in fact, the most fun I've had at the theater for a while. This venue generally attracts a pretty staid crowd, many of them middle-aged and older, and it was clear that some people were offended ...

    Colorado has a strong tradition of producing ceramics. During the early decades of the twentieth century, this was due in large part to the abundance of natural clay. But there's no simple explanation for why the post-World War II era was such a gold...
