WELCOME Here, creativity rises above the usual and ordinary. Whether you enjoy exhibitions of contemporary art, or fun-filled festivals where you can touch the artwork and become a performer yourself.

EXHIBITIONS Ecoventions Breckenridge Giuseppe Licari (Rotterdam, Netherlands), Gretchen Marie Schaefer (Denver, Colorado), Nicola Di Croce (Venice, Italy), Susannah Sayler + Edward Morris (Syracuse, New York), Tara Rynders (Denver,Colorado) Various Sites, FREE Aug–Sep, 2019 This project will feature multiple site-specific public commissions, each created by an environmental artist or team of artists during a residency in Breckenridge. The installations will target local topics of ecological and public safety concern including watersheds degraded by historic mining activities, and the beetle kill pine amplified threat of wildfires. Support for this project is generously provided by the National Endowment for the Arts, Colorado Creative Industries and Town of Breckenridge. Tension Scott Young (Denver, Colorado) Gallery@OMH, Old Masonic Hall, FREE May 30–Jul 8, 2019 Tension lures the visitor into a maze of neon mystically bent into dangling “ropes” of illuminated glass. The glowing cables defy the physics of their medium and appear to loosely hang on mechanical pulley systems, evocative of machinery used in the mining era of Summit County. Scott Young’s work confuses the senses and invites us to question what in our life appears vital and warm, but secretly possesses a tenuous fragility that only survives through devoted care. PAGE
