After a lovely trek to Boulder I'm back to the summer grind in sunny San Diego. Going to work after fun, family AND whitewater rafting is so so hard! I confess, i fell in love with the Denver Art museum, and did not once experience vertigo in their funked up space. Damien Hirst's ginormous ash tray, entitled Party Time, was a major highlight. It's large and filthy, but for some reason i loved it. I also was drawn to works on paper in a small exhibition assembled by printmaker Melanie Yazzie, Associate Professor of Art at the University of Colorado, Boulder. Really wonderful works, that i wish i could begin to acquire. Finally--new designer favorite: Johnny Was. Gorgeous material and colors. SOO cheery & fresh.
