See how governments can collaborate and innovate! Join us for the presentation of workable solutions to pressing problems faced by the City and County of Denver and State of Colorado in this Pitch Night—the finale to the 2018 Governmental Entrepreneurial Leadership Accelerator (GELA) run by Silicon Flatirons.

Four teams will pitch their ideas of innovation to Mayor Michael B. Hancock, Lt. Governor Donna Lynne, and Nicole Glaros of Techstars. Teams are comprised of rising stars from the City and County of Denver, City of Boulder, State of Colorado, Denver Public Schools, and students from the University of Colorado Law School and the University of Denver Sturm College of Law. Their pitches include solutions for recruiting and retaining foster parents, increasing efficiencies among hearing officers, streamlining grant contracting between the state and local governments, and reducing the number of people in jail who do not belong there.

Pitch Night is the capstone to this seven-week accelerator where teams attend a boot camp with a cutting-edge entrepreneurial curriculum, work closely with experienced mentors and government leaders, and research and test entrepreneurial solutions to their assigned problem statements. This accelerator is a partnership launched by Silicon Flatirons, the City and County of Denver, and State of Colorado to encourage innovative thinking within government.

In this series, Daisy Patton uses American postmortem photography as a substratum for her paintings. These photographs are intended to commemorate the deceased and offer solace to those grieving. In the photographs Patton selects, ornate funeral parlor interiors and elaborate trappings—floral arrangements, religious symbols and decorative rugs—overwhelm the presence of a body.

Patton enlarges found black-and-white postmortem photographs taken in the late19th through mid-20th century and lavishly paints over them. Her application of shocking colors and extensive patterning vivifies the photographs. Raised painted surfaces appeal to the sense of touch and felt experience. Vines and floral motifs emanate from and enter into the bodies, suggesting cyclic journeys. Faces, folded hands and other photographic passages untouched by Patton’s brush bring into relief the corpse and personalize our relationship with the dead.

Given the immersive scale of Patton’s tableaux, viewers participate as mourners, both for those who have died and for our own movement toward death. This Is Not Goodbye encourages bereavement rituals and supports a public discourse on how we approach loss in American society.

This exhibition is curated by Sandra Q. Firmin.

Act On It: Student Activism at the University of Colorado explores CU’s rich tradition of social activism. The exhibit, by graduate student, Claire Steffen, is showing now through summer in Norlin's STEAM gallery, southwest second floor.

Since the 1960s, CU students have protested, rallied, and marched. They staged hunger strikes, teach-ins, and built shantytowns. Students opposed war, violence, and bigotry; demanded diversity and fought for equal rights. Visit Norlin Library to explore this history and consider how you could “act on it”.

In this series, Daisy Patton uses American postmortem photography as a substratum for her paintings. These photographs are intended to commemorate the deceased and offer solace to those grieving. In the photographs Patton selects, ornate funeral parlor interiors and elaborate trappings—floral arrangements, religious symbols and decorative rugs—overwhelm the presence of a body.

Patton enlarges found black-and-white postmortem photographs taken in the late19th through mid-20th century and lavishly paints over them. Her application of shocking colors and extensive patterning vivifies the photographs. Raised painted surfaces appeal to the sense of touch and felt experience. Vines and floral motifs emanate from and enter into the bodies, suggesting cyclic journeys. Faces, folded hands and other photographic passages untouched by Patton’s brush bring into relief the corpse and personalize our relationship with the dead.

Given the immersive scale of Patton’s tableaux, viewers participate as mourners, both for those who have died and for our own movement toward death. This Is Not Goodbye encourages bereavement rituals and supports a public discourse on how we approach loss in American society.

This exhibition is curated by Sandra Q. Firmin.

Act On It: Student Activism at the University of Colorado explores CU’s rich tradition of social activism. The exhibit, by graduate student, Claire Steffen, is showing now through summer in Norlin's STEAM gallery, southwest second floor.

Since the 1960s, CU students have protested, rallied, and marched. They staged hunger strikes, teach-ins, and built shantytowns. Students opposed war, violence, and bigotry; demanded diversity and fought for equal rights. Visit Norlin Library to explore this history and consider how you could “act on it”.

Claire Steffen is a second-year master’s student in the Museum and Field Studies Program. After graduating in May, she plans to pursue a career as an exhibit and program developer in a history museum.

Funding provided by The Collie Fund, University of Colorado Museum of Natural History.

In this series, Daisy Patton uses American postmortem photography as a substratum for her paintings. These photographs are intended to commemorate the deceased and offer solace to those grieving. In the photographs Patton selects, ornate funeral parlor interiors and elaborate trappings—floral arrangements, religious symbols and decorative rugs—overwhelm the presence of a body.

Patton enlarges found black-and-white postmortem photographs taken in the late19th through mid-20th century and lavishly paints over them. Her application of shocking colors and extensive patterning vivifies the photographs. Raised painted surfaces appeal to the sense of touch and felt experience. Vines and floral motifs emanate from and enter into the bodies, suggesting cyclic journeys. Faces, folded hands and other photographic passages untouched by Patton’s brush bring into relief the corpse and personalize our relationship with the dead.

Given the immersive scale of Patton’s tableaux, viewers participate as mourners, both for those who have died and for our own movement toward death. This Is Not Goodbye encourages bereavement rituals and supports a public discourse on how we approach loss in American society.

This exhibition is curated by Sandra Q. Firmin.

Documenting Change: Our Climate, the Rockies is the first in a series of exhibitions and programs in 2018/19 presenting the historical scope of documentary strategies shared by artists and scientists in their study of climate. Often their study involves recording change. The exhibition unites historical and contemporary materials to demonstrate connections between artistic production and scientific discovery. Alongside works from the University of Colorado Art Museum's permanent collection, the exhibition will feature documentary photographs from the archives of National Snow and Ice Data Center, and contemporary artworks with a focus on the Front Range Rocky Mountains.
