Popular Linda sculpture
Popular Linda sculpture
It seems as though just about everyone loves Linda, John DeAndrea's ultra-lifelike sculpture at the Denver Art Museum. Since making her first appearance in 1984, Linda has become one of the Museum's most popular artworks. Linda will be on view at the Denver Art Museum through March 4, 2007.
DeAndrea, a Colorado-based artist, meticulously painted the "skin" surface of Linda, including tiny details such as freckles, and he finished her by applying natural hair, eyebrows, and eyelashes-strand by strand. He once said, "If I could make it breathe I'd say, 'I've done a good day's work now.'" Linda is one of the Museum's most-frequently asked about works of art. However, because the polyvinyl material she is made of is very sensitive to climate and lighting conditions, the Museum cannot keep Linda on display continually. Don't miss your chance to see Linda at the Museum in February, "Everyone Loves Linda" month!
Untitled #1(Vertigo) on February 23
Calling all late-night revelers to the Denver Art Museum on the final Friday in February for dizzying entertainment and fascinating art experiences! On Friday, February 23, from 6-10 p.m., the Museum will launch Untitled #1(Vertigo), the first in the Museum's series of Untitled final Friday events for city-goers looking for a unique night out.
At each month's Untitled event, visitors can expect music, film, food, a cash bar, and art-inspired activities. At February's Untitled #1 (Vertigo), curious attendees can test their susceptibility to vertigo on the "vertigometer," and experience off-the-wall tours of the art collection, along with some late-night guerilla de-tours inside the building. This month they'll also experience Farouche performance artists, interactive technology, and Vertigo, the Alfred Hitchcock movie projected on the angled titanium sides of the new Frederic C. Hamilton Building. Catering will be provided by Bistro Boys and Gourmet Fine Catering. The Untitled final Friday series of events are included in regular Museum admission.
