David Choe, Joe To, and DVS1 all headed to Denver for Terminal Kings, a partnership with the University of Denver and Denver Airport. Dave and team added some much needed color to the winter skies of the Rocky Mountains “Terminal Kings is 10 days and 10 nights of World Class Street Art, music, performance and energy presented by the University of Denver in a proud partnership with Denver International Airport.

The murals will be painted live and this event is held at City Hall event space in downtown Denver.”
Oh, we actually don’t know. We wanted to know if you knew? Because when God’s wrath strikes down upon us, all in the name of ratings for Family Radio (a good read of the Bible kids), we want to know, where should we go? The Giants vs A’s game? Six Flags? Coffee shop? Gay Pride parade? Art Fair? …
Some blog in Denver has at least figured out your soundtrack. Blondie’s “Rapture” is a great call.

We just saw on the mother site that Josh Keyes has this new piece on his blog, and because Josh makes a really limited about of work, its always exciting to see what he has going on. He has a new show atDavid B. Smith Gallery in Denver called Collision, that will open November 5th and remain on view through December 11th. This piece looks great.

AMANDA GORDON DUNN
Form Follows Fiction
Sexy is rarely a word I use to describe art and even more so when referring to sculpture, but Sexy is an apt description for the work of Amanda Gordon Dunn. Combining sleek form, perfect lines & elegant shapes with brilliant colors Amanda Gordon Dunn explores a variety of conceptual ideas with her current body of work that ranges from her identifying loved ones with 70s muscle cars to the futurist set design of classic science fiction movies, which is the basis for her upcoming show The Landscapes of Science Fiction.
Dunn’s wall-reliant structures are graceful and mysterious and seemingly lay somewhere between Ellsworth Kelly and Anish Kapoor. The simple nature of her work echoes the minimalist movement of the 1960s and 1970s and perhaps not coincidently is also decades that produced the Science Fiction films that inspired her new exhibition.
“I recently revisited the film Barbarella and was blown away by the tremendous forms, color and bizarre landscapes/set design. This sudden fascination fueled a nerd-crazed hunt into other sci-fi cult classics such as Logan’s Run, Solaris and Dune. My childhood favorites came into the equation with rediscovering old fantasy comic books and novels and old TV shows like He-Man and Thunder cats.” Dunn continues, “From these I created specific understructures that can be seen as a universal form throughout the show. Each wall-reliant sculpture has large, bulbous growths that emerge from candy apple finishes. When the viewer is standing in front of the work it creates a disorienting optical reflection like one may see from a spaceship or in Jane Fonda’s space suit. The sculptures are named after specific science fiction planets, such as “Thundra” (home planet of the Thunder Cats).”
