On View Through April 14th: Perspectives Exhibition

The artwork featured in this exhibit represents work developed by students of the Mizel Museum’s two weekly painting classes with master teacher Boris Shoshensky.  Owing to the unique properties of oil, watercolor, and acrylic paints, as well as charcoal pencil, the works vary considerably in mood and style—from ethereal dreamscape to impressionistic landscape to realistic cityscape—and portraits in between. Yet the works are connected by the method of communal learning through which they were developed, as each artist was able to benefit from the experience and suggestions of their peers during the painting process.

Exhibit viewing is included in Mizel Museum entry fee

For more information about the  exhibit and/or weekly painting class, email or call 303-749-5017.

White Mirror – Second Look Film Screening & Panel Discussion

On International Holocaust Remembrance Day, the Mizel Museum, Denver Arts & Venues’ Public Art Program, and Lemon Sponge Cake Contemporary Ballet will screen two short films on the making of Denver’s first original, public and site-specific dance performance at Babi Yar Park. ‘Second Look’ by independent filmmaker Barbara Sandick, and ‘White Mirror’ by dance videographer David Andrews edited by Jenifer Sher.

The performance, titled “White Mirror,” was created by internationally renowned choreographer Robert Sher-Machherndl of Boulder’s Lemon Sponge Cake Ballet. The focus of the commission was to provide an educational and living memorial in dance for the thousands of Jews, Gypsies, Ukrainians and others that were brutally murdered from 1941 to 1943 at the Babi Yar ravine near Kiev, Ukraine during WWII. In conjunction with the screening, a portion of “White Mirror” will be performed live with musical accompaniment from celebrated pianist, George Lopez.

The evening will conclude with a panel discussion on the commissioning of “White Mirror,” the history of Babi Yar Park and the tragic events that took place at the Babi Yar ravine. The panelist include: Georgina Kolber of the Mizel Museum, Rudi Cerri, Denver Public Art Administrator, Robert Sher-Machherndl of Lemon Sponge Cake Ballet, Tina Bishop of Mundus Bishop and Dr. Julie Lieber from the University of Denver. Moderating the event is, Denis Berckefeldt, former Denver Commissioner on Cultural Affairs.
