Summer Happenings at RMCAD
The summer term has started at RMCAD, and things are heating up. There’s plenty to do around campus, including student, alumni, and community events. Here are a few things to keep an eye out for:
Support Colorado Artists
A Clumped Charm Exhibition Opening
Thursday, May 17, 2018, 4 – 8 p.m.
Philip J. Steele Gallery
Guest-curated by Paul Keefe and Brooke Tomiello, A Clumped Charm features artworks by 14 Colorado-based artists who are united in their playful processes and their unique senses of humor. The title of the show, an anagram of artist Marcel Duchamp’s name, reflects the absurd and experimental spirit of the works on display. The exhibition will include a variety of works from artists working in sculpture, painting, video, ceramics, and printmaking. Can’t make it to the opening? The exhibition will be on display through June 29.
