John McEnroe: Beauty Does
July 16–September 29, 2013
Denver-based artist John McEnroe presents a new, site-specific work for the Fries Family Atrium as well as an exhibition of sculpture and other works to be presented in the Mary Caulkins and Karl Kister Gallery and the Joseph Crescenti Family Gallery.
To create the sculpture, which will fill the Fries Family Atrium, McEnroe manipulates a polymer to resemble monumental drips of paint. Sheer and light, this large-scale installation will include stalactite forms that course through the open spaces of the museum. The installation will be complemented by other sculptural works in the Mary Caulkins and Karl Kister Gallery and the Joseph Crescenti Family Gallery.
Curated by Nora Burnett Abrams, John McEnroe will be presented in the Fries Family Atrium, the Joseph Crescenti Family Gallery and the Mary Caulkins and Karl Kister Gallery from July through September 29, 2013. John McEnroe was born in 1968 in Independence, Missouri. He lives in Golden, Colorado and works in Denver.
