Stan Cuba, associate curator of the Kirkland Museum of Fine & Decorative Art, discusses the mural and sculpture commissions awarded to Colorado artists by patrons and the federal government in the first half of the 20th century. He'll show their work--depicting the vanished Old West and more contemporary subjects--including examples still seen and enjoyed today in schools, post offices, hotels and other public buildings throughout Colorado and our neighboring states.

August 14th 2017 1:00-2:00PM - Penitentes of Southern Colorado
La Fraternidad Piadosa de Nuestro Padre Jesus Nazareno, known as Los Penitentes, was the lay religious brotherhood of Spanish- American Catholic men that arose in northern New Mexico and southern Colorado during the late eighteenth and early nineteenth century. The Penitentes were active up until the early twentieth centuries and built and maintained religious meeting buildings called moradas. Because of the absence of priests, they devoted themselves to maintaining spiritually, and providing mutual and community aid. They are known for their religious chants of worship, called alabados. The passion of Christ is the central theme of the religious rituals and ceremonies of the penitentes during Holy Week. Join Dr. Antonio Esquibel, Rick Vigil and Manuel Salazar for a presentation on the history of Los Penitentes.

Presented in partnership with the Penitents: World End Rituals of Faith exhibit at Museo de las Americas. Penitents is open through September 17, 2017. See Penitents for free with your program ticket!

August 28th 2017 1:00-2:00PM - Selection of Masterpieces: Art from the Denver Art Museum’s Western American Art Collection
How do museums determine what is worthy of collecting and saving for posterity? Many of the paintings, artifacts, and ephemera found in the collections of our nation’s museums rarely see the light of day. From these vast collections, how do curators determine which works to put on display for the public? Join Jennifer R. Henneman, assistant curator for the Petrie Institute of Western American Art at the Denver Art Museum, as she delves into stories related to paintings and sculpture from Backstory: Western American Art in Context. Discover more about the provenance of these works as well as the forethought that went into choosing them for this exhibition.

September 25th 2017 1:00-2:00PM - A Finding the Story: History Colorado’s Collections in Context
We may know the general history of the Stetson cowboy hat, but how do we find the story connected to a particular hat from the History Colorado collection. Researching and reconnecting artifacts and stories can be a challenging task for curators but once the connection is made, a marvelous history unfolds. From a chuckwagonat the Zapata Ranch to a Civil War drum, join Senior Curator of Artifacts Alisa DiGiacomo as she talks about the process of finding the stories behind the art and culture of western expansion through some of History Colorado's artifacts currently on display in our exhibit, Backstory: Western American Art in Context.
