FLAGPOLE PROJECT

A community exhibit supported by a P.S. You Are Here Grant

Exhibition Dates: TBD

Location: Art Students League of Denver, 200 Grant St.

Call for Entry: Proposals due March 31, 2022

The Art Students League of Denver (ASLD) invites you to get territorial with us by joining a creative conversation on the history of flags, their use, and the controversy that can sometimes surround them.  Explore the history of Denver’s soil and pay homage to the lived experiences beneath its rapidly changing landscape. This is a call to art and a call to action to participate in our first exhibit dedicated to the art of flag making and honoring the places, spaces, and even memories that once existed or currently exist on these lands: Stores & businesses, historical events, neighborhoods, native communities as well as any locales that artists deem worthy of commemorating through the art of a flag.

This exhibit is curated by Executive Director Rachel Basye & Faculty/Board Member Holly-Kai Hurd
