In my culture, storytellers have an important place in the continuation of the history and our tradition. My father who was a great storyteller has created a huge memory base for my siblings and myself to draw on, and learn from. When we gather together we always end up telling these stories and enjoy remembering our father. It is this base and stories that influence and aid my role as a visual storyteller.
33 IDEAS!, an exhibit of art, writing and ideas
Denver International Airport
This exhibit showcases visual and literary artists associated with Colorado Art Ranch as presenters, artists in residence, or Nomads at one or more Artposia. The artists were selected because they use their passion, skills, knowledge, and talent to ask questions and react to the world around them. The work, in turn, inspires us to ask questions and view the world from different perspectives.
33 IDEAS! is on display at the Ansbacher Hall: The Art of Colorado, on the walkway between the terminal and A Gates before the security screening. The hall is accessible for everyone’s enjoyment.
