What does it take to install an art exhibition? Precision, creative problem solving, attention to detail and patience, to name a few of the skills that Art students at Metropolitan State University of Denver gain when working to install exhibitions at the Center for Visual Art.
“This experience working at CVA and having internships in other areas have helped me more professionally and are such great learning experiences that I feel more grateful for them than working in the studio making art for myself,” said Kristi Zaragoza, an Art student at MSU Denver who’s helping to install the exhibition CVA.
For the latest exhibition, “Colorado Women to Watch,” on display August 18 to October 21, students worked with influential artists Kim Dickey, Ana María Hernando, Maia Ruth Lee, Suchitra Mattai and Senga Nengudi, who have roots in Colorado. In addition to exhibiting their works at CVA, these five women were nominated to represent Colorado on the national level at the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, D.C.
