Birdseed Collective Unveiling Tuesday, January 13th:

Kicking it off – Birdseed Collective's GES Bus Bench Beautification Project

Through inspired collaboration and grant support from P.S. You Are Here, Birdseed Collective worked with Globeville Elyria Swansea (GES), LiveWell, RTD, Denver Public Works and community residents to identify six bus stops near the Bruce Randolph School, Swansea Elementary and Garden Place Elementary, and install and beautify bus benches. Lead artist Anthony Garcia Sr. decided the art would be a serape design – based on the long blanket-like shawl, often brightly colored and fringed at the ends. These projects in GES have transformed once vacant spaces into vibrant areas for resident and student transportation.

In-kind and cash match for the grant was committed through RTD for the benches, Denver Public Works for the concrete pads, Birdseed Collective for the art volunteers and GES LiveWell for a cash match. The actual design was presented to the Bruce Randolph School for their approval as well as 1500 GES households.

The unveiling has been set for Tuesday, Jan. 13, 5 p.m. at the Bruce Randolph School site off 40th Ave. and Steele St.

We also invite the community to explore all the bus stop locations including: 48th Ave. & Lincoln St., 47th Ave. & Washington St., 45th Ave. & Broadway, 40th Ave. & Steele St. and 47th Ave. & Columbine St.

Reed Weimer - Abstractions - opens at Pattern Shop

Pattern Shop Studio
3349 Blake Street
Denver, CO 80205

Reed Weimer - Abstractions

The Pattern Shop Studio’s next exhibition is a solo show by Colorado artist Reed Weimer entitled Abstractions. The exhibit will open as part of Denver Arts Week with a reception on Friday, November 7th, 2014, from 6 to 9PM and remain on display until January 2, 2015. Additional receptions will be held on Friday, December 5 and Friday January 2nd,
from 6 to 9PM.

In the world of Reed Weimer, abstractions are built from lines and forms. Over his career, he has explored this idea in many ways, producing various series of works, both in acrylic and print. Abstractions brings together many of Weimer’s most compelling series, such as MAP, Overgrowth, Gather and Sections, to give a broad and deep understanding of his artistry. His current output draws from his earlier forms and drawings and uses them to delve more deeply into his fascination with how lines continue to define his environment and how shapes, from microscopic to landscape sized, fill it in.
