Join us for open work sessions in RedLine’s Community Studio on the last Sunday of the month, 1:30-4:30PM. The Denver Papier Mache Club's mission is as serious as it is silly: to offer time and space for artists to gather and experiment with papier mache while having fun.

Reception: March 9, 6-9 PM
Eschewing traditional notions of imagery, this exhibit aims to shake, disrupt, and dizzy our understanding of visual culture and modern society. Photography is both a broken concept and an ever expanding medium; fluctuating between complacent states of being and important diverse artistic models. Delirium: Three Visions, is a photo-based exhibit highlighting critical contemporary voices and amplifying challenging artists working in and around modes of photography.
This month we're featuring the incredible poet Peace!
Peace is a queer, black woman residing in Houston, Texas. Her writing style can be described as cut-throat wisdom; creating an experience that engages the audience and allows them to feel/heal freely based on interpretation. Her work can be seen on Write About Now Poetry as well as published in Thorntree Press’ A Whore’s Manifesto and her latest body of work, “Inside a Whore’s Mind.” Contrary to the common definition encapsulated in her name, Peace represents the confidence and grace in being yourself in your skin and not apologizing for it.

The INSITE Fund is a funding program in collaboration with The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts Regional Regranting program and RedLine. This new fund responds to the gap in Denver’s creative ecosystem for artist-driven projects that sit outside the “norm” of arts experiences and lead to expanded audiences. This two-year, $100,000.00 per year, grant program would add to and reinforce the importance of funding opportunities that are accessible directly to artists working in an expansive field of ideas, audiences and visual arts practices.
