For this week's art review, critic Michael Paglia visited the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center, where he took in a retrospective of pop artist Floyd D. Tunson. Tunston's large body of work ranges from mixed-media installations to abstract paintings, and it earned high praise from Paglia, who called it one "of the greatest shows ever devoted to any contemporary Colorado artist." In short, this exhibit is not one to miss.
As if you needed further enticement, we've compiled photos of some of Tunston's many pieces on exhibit. Continue reading for a few highlights -- and then do yourself a favor and see them in person.
