Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Oakland-based artist Desirée Holman is admittedly a bit of a geek when it comes to otherworldly things, from auras to aliens, and that's the subject matter she taps visually in her ongoing project, Sophont. Begun in 2012, Sophont is a multimedia mixture of light, video, sound and physical paintings that incorporates both pop culture-driven imagery and more atmospheric visions.

Curator Cortney Lane Stell brings Holman and Sophont -- in all its spacey parts and pieces -- to the Philip J. Steele Gallery at the Rocky Mountain College of Art + Design for an exhibition that opens tonight with a reception from 6 to 9 p.m. and then runs through November 23. The gallery is open daily except Sundays; visit the website for more information.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
