EXHIBITIONS Blue River Giuseppe Licari (Rotterdam, Netherlands) + Gretchen Marie Schaefer (Denver, Colorado) Gallery@OMH, Old Masonic Hall | FREE Aug 8-Sep 8, 2019 In the last century, humanity has become a natural force that forges and is forged by the landscape it creates.

Ancient Roots and Modern Altars Santiago Jaramillo (Denver, Colorado) Gallery@OMH, Old Masonic Hall | FREE Oct 11–Nov 24, 2019

Ancient Roots and Modern Altars is a visual journey from the sacred ancient images of the Aztec to modern Mexican/MexicanAmerican celebrations of Día de los Muertos.

Along with Jaramillo’s remix of past and present imagery, this exhibition holds Summit County community altars to honor loved ones that have passed on, and to honor ancestors and past Aztec dance leaders.
