Denver Art Museum artist-in-residence Arturo Garcia explores sometimes surprising connections with nature

The Mexican-born artist based in the Denver area recorded the moment last autumn when 10 American bison were released in Wyoming as part of an effort to restore the majestic mammal in the ecosystem.

Arturo Garcia rose, bundled up in a puffy green vest and denim blue hoodie, and staked his easel amid the pale golden grasses of Wyoming’s Wind River Reservation, home to the Eastern Shoshone and Northern Arapaho. It was so windy he had to keep one hand on a canvas the size of a school notebook.

It was so cold an onlooker got out of her car to offer him her gloves — he could only wear one, as he needed a bare hand to manipulate the palette knife he uses instead of a brush to apply energetic lines and bold colors. Grass blew into his paint.

The Mexican-born artist based in the Denver area persevered for an hour and a half to record the moment last autumn when 10 American bison, tails whipping like flags, lumbered out of a trailer. The mini stampede and a similar release a year earlier were part of an effort by tribal leaders, the Wyoming Wildlife Federation and the National Wildlife Federation to restore the majestic mammal to an ecosystem of which it is a key part and to the stewardship of a people who see their own marginalization paralleled in the near annihilation by white settlers of an animal sometimes called buffalo.


Death & Co and The Ramble Hotel want to create a different kind of experience in Denver

As Death & Co owners David Kaplan and Alex Day stood on the patio of their new home at the Ramble Hotel recently, they couldn’t help but feel bemused by their new surroundings.

“We’re used to dark rooms,” said Kaplan, who along with Day and Ravi DeRossi opened the original Death & Co in a windowless New York City room more than 10 years ago.

But they’d heard Denverites really like to be outside, so there they stood on a warm April day, explaining how they’ll apply their talent for craft cocktails to a tropical patio menu. It’s just one piece of the multi-bar project they’re running inside Denver’s new Ramble Hotel at 25th and Larimer streets.
