Installations Fill the Lower Galleries at the Arvada Center

Last month, Michael Paglia reviewed Unbound: Sculpture in the Field, an over-the-top outdoor exhibit for which the prairie land south of the Arvada Center has been turned into an informal sculpture garden. This week, Paglia takes a look at another of the shows in the Unbound series. For Unbound: Five Installations, the Arvada Center's Collin Parson and Kristin Bueb invited five noted Colorado artists, each of whom specializes in creating all-encompassing environments, to fill separate galleries on the venue's lower level. Read Michael Paglia's review of Unbound: Five Installations, now posted on the Show and Tell blog.
