Logan Lecture: Virgil Ortiz

May 13, 2015 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Go behind the scenes of the newest (opens 5/17) exhibit at the Denver Art Museum with a lecture by the artist, Virgil Ortiz. Ortiz is an internationally renowned ceramicist, fashion designer, and graphic artist from Cochiti Pueblo, New Mexico.

Event Description:

This is no ordinary exhibition or lecture! Do not expect to hear about mundane aspects of pottery or see images of ceramics against white walls. Ortiz will share his story told through 31 of his clay figures that blend Pueblo history with science fiction set against larger-than-life graphic murals. His work reflects on the 1680 Pueblo Revolt then pushes the story into the future, imagining the struggle repeating again in the year 2180.

This is the first exhibition to visually tell the entire story of his Revolt series from start to finish. We welcome you to come hear the story directly from the artist himself. Revolt 1680/2180: Virgil Ortiz opens May 17 and is located on level 4 of the Hamilton Building.

Doors open at 5:30 pm, lecture at 6 pm (new time)

Tickets are $8 students and volunteers, $12 DAMC and Douglas Society members and artists, $15 DAM members, $18 nonmembers.
