    Western Nights - Remington's dark scenes light up the Denver Art Museum.

    It's amazing how readily recognizable the imagery associated with the American West is, especially considering how quickly the whole cowboy-and-Indian thing came and went. In less than a century, the Western states were transformed from a huge, unkno...

    Clay Pride - The state of the art in contemporary ceramics is on display at the CU Art Museum.

    These days, it's hard to mention the University of Colorado at Boulder and keep a straight face. I'm referring, of course, to the involuntary smirks, cringes and eye-rolling that are among the most common responses to hearing all the juicy dirt about...

    The Wild West - Flaming Guns colors the stage a raucous red.

    Flaming Guns of the Purple Sage is a manic, farcical take on the myth of the West, mixed with a large dollop of gothic horror. Best of all, it's a genuinely clever, funny and outrageous script. Bits and pieces of things you've seen before float to th...
