Another 100 Colorado Creatives: Dmitri Obergfell

#57: Dmitri Obergfell

A Colorado native, Dmitri Obergfell graduated from the Rocky Mountain College of Art + Design under the watch of Clark Richert in 2010. He's since embarked on a career of international scale, making art that turns classicism on its head, sometimes quite literally, as in the case of a proposed outdoor sculpture of an upended statue that he hopes to complete next year at the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art. What does this newly anointed RedLine resident artist think about his place in the local art world? He discusses this and more in his answers to the 100CC questionnaire.

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.
