Michael Paglia & Robert Delaney
Pioneers of Denver’s modernism scene, Paglia and Delaney opened Denver’s oldest retro mod shop, Popular Culture, in 1981. Today, Paglia is best known as the Art Critic for Westword, who also frequently contributes reviews to national magazines like Art in America and Art, Ltd.  Delaney minds the shop, Popular Culture, at 1957 S. Broadway, and  has also become one of the region’s leading modern sculptors, currently signed with William Havu Gallery.

Artists, are you MODERN?

How do you interpret Modernism?  Is your work an homage to the past or a continuation of those ideas?  Do you gain inspiration from the googie styles of the 1950’s’, or the sleek lines of Le Courbousier?  All genres, styles, and mediums will be considered, as long as they relate to the theme of “modernism”.

This is your chance to have your work seen by over 3000 art and culture lovers, who will be coming ready to shop at the Denver Modernism Show! 

The show runs August 27-29 and will be held at the Denver National Western Complex Expo Hall.
