Inspired by the natural world, Denver artist Nicole Anona Banowetz has created a larger than life, immersive insect nursery made from sewn inflatable sculptures and assembled forms. She says, “Forget that the work is art for a moment and have the sort of pure interaction you would have in nature.”
Walk amongst the cocoons and larva as you would in nature. Immerse yourself, be curious, and contribute to the life cycle of the nursery by designing your own creature. Come back to see the installation evolve over the course of the year.
Fun for kids and adults alike, The Incubation Effect is included in general admission, free for members and kids age 18 and younger.
Microcosms was created on site in Korpo, Finland. I lived for one month on the island in the AARC residency program preparing my sculptures, which were inspired by the lichen and moss growing in the forests of the island. The sculptures were installed in the forest which inspired them for the annual summer environmental art exhibit Barfotastigen / Paljasjalkapolku / Barefoot Path.
Teaching/Artist at Understudy will exhibit the work of Denver Arts + Technology Advancement (DATA), Marie EvB Gibbons, Nicole Banowetz, and Tony Ortega, with guest appearances by Molina Speaks and Jennifer Ghormley. The teaching artist straddles two worlds of creativity and innovation, manifesting the creation of their own artistic practice while sharing that practice with students of all ages.
