Please join us as our own ArtLab high school interns host lively discussions with Denver-area leaders, about the topics addressed by home town hero, painter Jordan Casteel. A former 2010 PlatteForum Lead Artist, Casteel’s work is celebrated in a current solo exhibition at the Denver Art Museum, Returning the Gaze, open now through August 18th, 2019.
Based on the wild success of ArtLab’s workshop held at last year’s 48 Hours Summit at Redline, Coffee with Gen Z., ArtLab interns will again interview local politicians, activists, government workers and more, to get down to the bottom of how youth can become more active and empowered by engaging in many of the important issues addressed in Casteel’s exhibition. Join us at the museum, inside Jordan’s exhibit, where we will be seated throughout the galleries engaged in deep discussion! The topics discussed and esteemed guests at this event are as follows:
