#ArtFindsUs
@KContemporaryArt
@AthenaProjectArts
The #ArtFindsUs initiative, a partnership between K Contemporary Gallery Denver and Athena Project, was born to contribute to the economic livelihood of local artists and the Denver community. #ArtFindsUs compensates artists and provides all of Denver with accessibility to artwork, reinforcing how art is instrumental, especially during these economically challenging times, to uplift our community and reinforce our shared existence.
Similarly to food banks, #ArtFindsUs will provide nourishment, a positive stimulus to Denver communities. When food is available and shared, stress is reduced and community reinforced. In that vein, the goal is to bring people to their front yards or windows, connecting them with images or sounds that will resonate, filling them with hope. It will not compromise anyone’s health, is freely accessible, and is in motion. Like jazz, this is improvisation, an opportunity to create together, meeting the needs of this historic time.
Communities hardest hit as well as organizations providing services to women will be included on the routes. The program will begin in June and with the support of our community and donations, will culminate in November during Denver Arts Week.

Pink Progression: Collaborations takes over all three of the Arvada Center’s galleries in a spectacular celebration of the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment, guaranteeing and protecting women’s right to vote. The exhibition recognizes consecutive dates in which all women received the right to vote in America. The artist collective Pink Progression rose out of the 2017 Womxn’s March to inspire social change and explore ideas of feminism, equality, inclusivity, gender identity, unity, and community through creative expression. For Pink Progression: Collaborations, creatives fused their narratives into multidimensional works, ranging from site-specific installations, video, performance, and traditional fine arts.

This theme came from a discussion of crossing borders – politically charged, contested, invisible and those clearly designated, as well as socioeconomic, emotional and other intangible barriers. Our goal is to inspire the broad and deep creative exploration that has flourished in past Artnauts exhibitions.
