Don Coen: The Migrant Series

Through July 24, 2016 – Special Exhibition Gallery

Created by Colorado-based artist Don Coen, these 15 large-scale realistic portraits tell the visual story of migrant farmers in today’s United States. The images highlight the unique personalities of each subject and their work ethic. Painted between 2001 and 2010, the series comes from hundreds of hours Coen spent in fields making studies and taking photos in California, Colorado, Idaho, Oregon, Texas and Florida. His aim is to give these hard-working men and women an identity along with an expression of gratitude.

Michael Naranjo: The Artist Who Sees With His Hands

Through July 3 – Temporary Exhibition Gallery

Michael Naranjo grew up in a New Mexico pottery family and went to school to study sculpture, but service in Vietnam threatened his dream. A grenade explosion took his eyesight and left his right hand severely wounded. Despite these limitations Naranjo has created well over 100 important works including many monuments. Drawn from the Collection of Tia, this exhibition surveys more than 30 works from throughout his 45-year career.
