Zach Wolfson begins Season Three of his series Beyond the Gallery with Armando Silva, a performance artist in the Greeley Creative District.
As an artist, Armando wants to bring artwork where artwork is needed. Artwork shouldn’t be a destination. Creativity shouldn’t be in one specific place – it should be everywhere, and it should be unexpected.
The winners are JESSICA COONEY OF GREELEY, Don Richmond of Alamosa, and Lissette Riviere of Montrose.

The local arts community is invited to attend the institute’s performances and keynote presentations free of charge June 10-12. That includes the SXSW award-winning film Trash Dance at 2:30 p.m. June 10 at Kress Theatre, 817 8th Ave. The showing will be followed by a keynote address from the film’s director Andrew Garrison, who followed a choreographer riding along with sanitation workers to capture their performances in everyday life.
The Arts In Motion Institute is made possible through grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, Think 360 Arts and in collaboration with Colorado Creative Industries. The offer of free admission to keynote presentations is made possible by support from the City of Greeley and Greeley Creative District.
