TWO NEW LARGE-SCALE ARTWORKS INSTALLED AT CHAMPA AND 15TH AS PART OF THE DTD'S OUTDOOR ART GALLERY
The latest large-scale artworks selected for Downtown Denver as part of the Denver Theatre District's outdoor art gallery were just installed last weekend. Alvin Gregorio's "Boomerangin through history and generations" and David Tippit's "State of the Union" can be seen at the corner of 15th and Champa, adding a fresh look to an old building and enhancing a heavily trafficked downtown avenue with excellent local artwork.
Plus Gallery is known as one of the true progressive contemporary exhibition spaces in Denver, maintaining the highest standards for artist representation and community interaction. Since 2001 the gallery has built a formidable reputation as a valuable resource for the art and collector community through solo exhibitions by some of Colorado's most prestigious and forward thinking artists, as well as an ongoing experimental forum for new media. The program offers an extensive selection of works by visionary national artists and often serves as an incubator for new emerging talent. Plus Gallery collaborates with partners throughout the Denver area in order to raise the vitality of the local scene, complementing the efforts put forth at the institutional level in order to construct a more creative and dynamic community.
In 2009 Plus Gallery relocated to one of downtown Denver's most unusual and dramatic structures, the "Flue" building of the Benjamin Moore Paint complex at 2501 Larimer Street at the entrance to the River North Arts District. This singular redevelopment incorporates a two-story gallery to enhance the sophistication and quality of artwork represented.
