Dairy Block is celebrating the rugged spirit of the Rocky Mountain region with TRUE WEST, a new pop-up art installation featuring modern Western works by 30 artists.
Curated by Denver artist Michael Dowling, TRUE WEST will be on display in the Alley at Dairy Block from Jan. 9th – Jan. 25th, with an Opening Celebration on Friday, Jan. 10th at 6 p.m.
TRUE WEST will feature pieces from several top Denver galleries, including Leon Art Gallery and K Contemporary. TRUE WEST is a look at the West through the eyes of the artist. Each artist has taken on the notion in their own way, and in some cases by mistake. Many of the artists were invited because of their direct relationship with the West – and others were invited because their work was made without the West directly in mind, but the symbols and ideas found their own way to cross over.
