But he’s visited plenty: “The only way to see these things is to get off the pavement,” he points out. You can see the results of his explorations in Trespassing, a stunning exhibit of 27 Matthews works (including a poster for that first Larimer Square show) now on display at the Denver Art Museum; although he’s been in the museum’s collection for more than a decade, this is his first show there.
And tonight at 6:30 p.m., you can get a more in-depth look at the artist’s career when the new documentary William Matthews: Drawn to Paint, co-directed by Chad Herschberger and Amie Knox (who also produced the film), screens in the lower level of the DAM’s Hamilton building. You’ll also be able to see the show — but if you miss it (or want to come back to study the incredible “Branding Arrangement”), Trespassing will be up through May 17. Tickets to the screening are $10 for museum members, $13 for others; for more information, go to denverartmuseum.org.
Fri., Jan. 23, 6:30-7:30 p.m., 2015
