One of History Colorado’s regional museums, the Byers-Evans House Museum, currently is holding an exhibit of artworks by Colorado artists who were members of the Denver Artist’s Guild. Founded in 1928, the Guild included such well-known artists as Vance Kirkland and Allen True.
Our library has recently acquired a gorgeous new book from History Colorado highlighting the exhibit and the history of the Guild. The full-color-illustrated book includes not only the exhibition catalog, but also a history of the Guild; a discussion of the Guild’s 1948 split between traditionalists and modernists; and a walking tour of artworks on view in Denver and around the state.
