Artistic Eye on History: Fort Collins 150

From July 25th through September 28th, 2014 the Fort Collins Museum of Art will present an exhibition in honor of its Banner Health-Kaiser Permanente 2014 Masks Honorary Chair, Paula Edwards. Paula chose as her Honorary Chair project an exhibition that celebrates Fort Collins’ 150th anniversary and showcases the many outstanding artists who live and work in the Fort Collins Area. The exhibition will feature works of art that illustrate, comment upon or artistically re-envision historic events, important cultural or economic developments and important historic figures in the history of Fort Collins. The exhibition coincides with FC150 exhibition that opens in the fall of 2014 at the Fort Collins Museum of Discovery.

“This exhibit is a unique opportunity to look into the minds of several local artists and see what they see as they ponder the last century and a half of Fort Collins’ history,” said David Prosser, the museum’s Interim Executive Director.
