An exceptional collection of "art that is felt with the heart." A to Z Global Folk Art honors everyday art that embodies and reflects cultural identity. "We are excited to showcase a variety of eclectic art from local cultures around the world," said Heidi Cross, Chair of the Museum's Board of Directors. "Unlike items that are mass produced, folk art conveys the personality of the craftsperson as well as the artist's culture and community. It is the art of the everyday by people with a creative spirit." The remarkable exhibit features global folk art from over 20 contributors in Northern Colorado. Examples include a tapa cloth purse from Fiji, a Hindu goddess from Bali made from antique coins and gilded tree bark, and a Mikoshi puppet head from the mountains of western Japan. Admission: $5 adults, $3 seniors/students, & $1 youth.

To get what he wants, Macbeth will let nothing stand in his way - not the lives of others, the people of Scotland or his own well-being. As his obsession takes command of his humanity and his sanity, the death toll rises and his suspicions mount. Shakespeare's compact, brutal tragedy kicks off the grand reopening of our theatre-in-the-round in a visceral re-imagining from director Robert O'Hara. This ambitious reinvention of the classic tale reminds us that no matter what fate is foretold, the man that chooses the dagger must suffer the consequences.
Known for his audacious artistic vision, Director Robert O'Hara is "shaking up the world, one audience at a time" (The New York Times). He has won the 2010 NAACP Award for Best Director, two Obie Awards, an Oppenheimer Award and the 2015 Lambda Literary Award for LGBT Drama. This is his first production at the DCPA.
Producing Partners: Isabelle Clark, Keith & Kathie Finger and Diana & Mike Kinsey
