Process to Consumption exhibition presented by Create Denver, provides eight Denver-based artists with limited studio time on the third floor of the McNichols Building and “vessels” to create their original artworks. This show challenges both the artist and audience by providing the public a rare opportunity to share in dialog and witness the artists’ creative process from conception to the many stages, methods and perspectives of execution, leading to the final exhibition.
