RMCAD Student Ryan Mathews Completes Colfax Marathon

Posted July 7th, 2014 at 11:31AM

Congratulations to RMCAD Art Education student Ryan Mathews! Mathews represented RMCAD, 40 West Arts, Metro West Housing Solutions and the City of Lakewood during the Colfax Marathon. She finished the Colfax Marathon in five hours and thirty minutes.

Training five to six days each week gave Mathews time to think, create new projects and generate ideas to improve her programs and practice. As she trained, Matthews noticed how quickly Denver communities changed from neighborhood to neighborhood. It led her create urban landscape paintings, photography and a life size trash sculpture of merging Denver communities.

Aside from running, Mathews will be student teaching and graduating next spring. She hopes to attend grad school for art education and remain with 40 West and Denver as an active member in the arts district.
