This week we are celebrating Fort Collins native, DeWain Valentine. Valentine is a California artist who has built a reputation on his large, vibrant, polished cast-resin sculptures that have been exhibited across the nation at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City and at the Getty Museum in Los Angeles. Spectators of his work will be taken on a journey through minimalist forms that are both captivating and awe provoking, with high gloss and brilliant color.
Starting October 1st, Valentine will have his art on display at the Colorado State University Art Museum located in the University Center for the Arts, which happens to be the the old Fort Collins High School that DeWain attended. Also on October 1st, he will present a lecture about his process and his work starting at 5:00 p.m. in the Griffin Concert Hall. A reception will follow from 6:00- 8:00 p.m. For more information, please visit http://artmuseum.colostate.edu/.
