Cloudscape : Tracing the Evolution of Clouds in Art
Friday, February 23rd, 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm
The Rocky Mountain Land Library is thrilled to be partnering with the American Museum of Western Art – The Anschutz Collection for one of the first eye-opening programs inspired by the RMLL’s ongoing Cloud Atlas Project.
Join the AMWA staff on a Museum walking tour that will explore the cloudscapes of Western American painting. We will discuss the historical importance of clouds in paintings, along with how the use of clouds contributes to our reaction or interpretation of art.
The walking tour will begin at 3:00 pm and last approximately an hour and a half. The tour is limited to 25 visitors, and advance reservations are recommended as programs often sell out. Tickets are not refundable for sold-out events.
The Cloud Atlas Project
The Rocky Mountain Land Library has long felt that nature is always near, whether we are at South Park’s Buffalo Peaks Ranch, or in downtown Denver. Nature, and in particular clouds, enrich our days no matter where we are.
The Cloud Atlas Project’s goal is to cultivate community appreciation for clouds in the city and the country, to foster conversations about clouds and encourage simple awe at the sky above. We will also be advancing related programming in partnership with local neighborhood groups, art institutions, public schools, and local governments.
