GOCA @ UCCS & I.D.E.A. @ COLORADO COLLEGE
Theme: Economic Creativity
The Gallery of Contemporary Art at UCCS and IDEA @ Colorado College are excited to announce the second presentation 1440 Minutes, a joint public program supporting Colorado contemporary artists. 1440 Minutes is a twenty-four hour art installation and exhibition event, curated around the theme of “Economic Creativity.” Great innovations arise in times of crisis; these innovations drive future economic and cultural growth. Economic Creativity presents artists who examine how, during this time of great change, we can – and should – use or re-use elements of our personal, cultural, and material past to re-envision a healthy, sustainable future. Featured artists: atomic elroy & zelda bubbles, Phillip Faulkner, David Fodel and Melanie Grimes & Jocelyn Nevel.
Special thanks to the Fine Arts Center for generously allowing UCCS and CC to use the FAC Modern for this project. Installations will begin at 5 PM on Thursday, June 18 and must be completed by 5 PM on Friday, June 19, 2009 (the public is welcomed and encouraged to stop in on Friday and watch the installation).
