Yesterday was the first Friday of June, and since I had the night off, I drove to Denver's Santa Fe Arts District after work for their First Friday Art Walk. There were not a lot of people there yet, but it was still early, and so perhaps all the hipsters showed up after I left. The first art gallery I hit was Metropolitan State University's Center for Visual Art (seen in the photo on the left), where they had on display a juried printmaking exhibition. A lot of the prints were very good, especially the ones that incorporated photographs into their design. I even ran across two prints by my old University of Denver Bookstore co-worker Carol, which were also quite nice. Carol is now working as an artist full time, as is Joe, another DU Bookstore alumni.
