2016 Kaiser Permanente Masks Exhibition

Fri, Apr 1, 2016 through Fri, May 6, 2016 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The Fort Collins Museum of Art’s 12th annual Masks exhibition and silent auction will be held from April 1st to May 6th, 2016. Since 2003, the Masks Project has attracted both professional artists, whose creativity is their economic main stay and recreational artists, who respond to their need to express their creativeness in ingenious styles. The result is an exhibition of 200 pieces of unconventional art, the celebratory Masks Grand Gala on April 22, 2016, and a tribute to the 2016 Honorary Chair, Michael Powers.

Broken Land | 2012-2015
‘The idea of history repeating itself generally means that recognizing mistakes of the past prevents their recurrence. Current political and cultural polarization in the United States seems to have blinded us to the effects of our terrible historical schisms—divisions that led to the horrific and devastating events of the American Civil War and which, having not been recognized and resolved, seem determined to repeat themselves. The current political divide in this country is not dissimilar to that of mid-nineteenth-century America. And once again, political leaders today, as before, appear incapable of lasting and effective resolutions. ‘
Still Lives | 2013-2015
‘Born of ill-informed misconceptions about the motives behind reenactments of the American Civil War during the 150th anniversary, my interest developed in the mentality of the weekend actors who caravan a web of routes to re- perform the actions of war on surrogate battlefields. My initial contact with a re-enactor involved driving through woods on a golf cart, while the driver wept and recounted the stories of all his ancestors killed or wounded in conflicts dating to the Civil War. I have since learned that the motivations compelling re-enactors are incalculably complex, but generally address themselves to the preservation of history and appropriate honor for the fallen.’ -Eliot Dudik +  Exhibitions and Receptions at C4FAP are always free and open to the public.

Charlotte’s Web

Fri, May 6, 2016 12:00 am

this is a recurring event

Springtime, when everything begins anew: The winter ice thaws, flowers start to bloom, and a young pig is born. Not just any pig…but some pig! This spring, Debut Theatre Company catches you in Charlotte’s Web, a tale of this remarkable pig, a young girl, a spider, and the strand that binds them together: friendship. You will meet fun loving Fern, her mischief-making brother, Avery, their soft-hearted parents, and a few opinionated barnyard animals, as they, along with everyone else, are caught in the magic of a little pig named Wilber. All Wilber wants is a friend, but his options seem limited to a cranky sheep, silly geese, and Templeton, the self-centered rat, until he meets Charlotte, the loving, caring spider. Charlotte shows the true meaning of a friend as she sets out on a mission to save Wilber’s life, even if it means the end of her own.

In Western art since the late eighteenth century, the romantic notion of the sublime competes for space with the spirit of human endeavor. On one hand, humans are weak and in awe before the power of nature, and on the other, they are energetic and domineering builders and settlers. All of the photographs in this exhibition seem to assert the human hand into the landscape through either conceptual awareness or peripheral physical evidence.’ Free and open to the public.

Springtime, when everything begins anew: The winter ice thaws, flowers start to bloom, and a young pig is born. Not just any pig…but some pig! This spring, Debut Theatre Company catches you in Charlotte’s Web, a tale of this remarkable pig, a young girl, a spider, and the strand that binds them together: friendship. You will meet fun loving Fern, her mischief-making brother, Avery, their soft-hearted parents, and a few opinionated barnyard animals, as they, along with everyone else, are caught in the magic of a little pig named Wilber. All Wilber wants is a friend, but his options seem limited to a cranky sheep, silly geese, and Templeton, the self-centered rat, until he meets Charlotte, the loving, caring spider. Charlotte shows the true meaning of a friend as she sets out on a mission to save Wilber’s life, even if it means the end of her own.
