100 Colorado Creatives: Pangloss Gravitron

#59: Pangloss Gravitron Pangloss Gravitron: Not a person. Rather, it's a diverse six-person collective of local artists who share a certain speculative, surreal and fantasmic scope in their works. "Pangloss" references Voltaire's optimist Dr. Pangloss from Candide; "Gravitron" is a spinning, flying-saucer-like amusement park ride using centrifugal force to elicit thrills.

KEEP WESTWORD FREE... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Susan Froyd started writing for Westword as the "Thrills" editor in 1992 and never quite left the fold. These days she still freelances for the paper in addition to walking her dogs, enjoying cheap ethnic food and reading voraciously. Sometimes she writes poetry.
