Upcoming Uptown Events  

June

through July 23-- The Imagine Butte Resource Center at 68 W. Park St., in partnership with the Josef and Anni Albers Foundation, presents prints by modern master Josef Albers. The works in the series are based on artworks that Albers made over the course of 40 years, from his early Bauhaus experiments to his mature “Homage to the Square” paintings. Albers carefully worked and reworked the original compositions to suit the format of screenprints (a printing method that he used for many of his best portfolios and individual prints). The IBRC will offer educational programming over the course of the exhibition, including workshops and lectures presented by artists and thinkers from around the state. For details and to experience the exhibit stop by the IBRC at 68 W. Park Street.
