2nd Annual Street Art of Denver Bus Tour

Art should be everywhere. Art is for everyone.

Art, together with the artist's voice, can serve as a megaphone for the raw experience of a locality and its people. And art has no better medium for relaying the culture of a particular street than when it is just that, on the street.

That's why we're bringing back the Street Art of Denver Bus Tour for a sequel!

The tour will take us through a handful of Denver neighborhoods, each with its own collection of stories on the walls.

Joining us again this year is The Street Art Network's Cori Anderson (@streetartnetwork_denver). Cori has worked closely with some of Denver's best artists to continue to tell their story and is incredibly knowledgeable when it comes to street art. We are so excited to have her back!

We will also be joined by surprise artists throughout the tour, each sharing their process and perspective on the street art scene in Denver.

Snacks and refreshments will be provided, so bring your sunscreen, your best camera, and your best friend!

The bus will pick us up on the South side of the Denver Art Museum, next to the cow sculpture at 12th Avenue and Acoma.

Paint like Zombies with Colorado Artist William Stoher

Come get in the Halloween spirit with CultureHaus and paint like zombies! Join us Saturday, October 26th in Boulder for an intimate studio tour and hands-on painting collaboration with internationally recognized artist William Stoehr. (Halloween treats, both boozy and non, will be provided of course).

After 40 years mapping the world, ultimately for National Geographic, William Stoehr retired to become a full time artist. Stoehr describes his method as painting "like a zombie". Working freely, Stoehr pours, drips, brushes, scrubs and scrapes paint on his canvases to create portraits that are both unique and eye-catching.

Much of his work focuses on the human condition and he uses live models to create his portraits. He explores intolerance, discrimination, addiction, violence and war with its victims, witnesses and survivors. The artist focuses on exploiting the shared gaze, "we are drawn to eyes. I want you to feel like my subjects are staring into your soul". He often paints facial features slightly out of alignment or vaguely different expressions for each side of the face. These variations might make his images come to life as memories, and prior experiences affect your perception. It is this shared gaze and uncertain context that provoke the viewer into creating a narrative. "If I create ambiguity with abstraction and a few naturalistic cues then maybe you create reality. That is because you complete the image, you create the narrative, and you project your own emotions. You will do a better job with your own perfect mental image than I can. The message is your message to create."

Stoehr's work is exhibited here in Denver at Space Gallery as well as internationally at universities, art centers, museums and galleries including a recent exhibit in London and an upcoming exhibition in Kuwait. See his work at www.williamstoehrart.com and follow him on instagram at @wlstoehr.

 

This event will take place in central Boulder, Colorado (exact address will be sent to RSVP guests prior to the event).
