Until July 12

The beautiful installation of Eileen Roscina, Like tears washed away by the rain, open in early June in Breckenridge, but as summer events accelerate in mountain ski town, you still have time to see it before it closes on July 12. The artwork honors both the vital aura of growing a garden and the life and personal experiences lost during the pandemic, using an array of pressed flowers, willow branches, mirrors and visual effects. If you are in Breck, too discover the sculptures of Joshua Ware completed during a residency at the Tin Shop, 117 Washington Street, on view through June 29.

The Collective Misnomer experimental film series returns in person – or stays online, if that’s your bag – with Make taste 3, its first program in 2021, screened outdoors near the Clyfford Still Museum. The show’s material defies categorization, so anything goes, and you can view it however you see fit – sitting on the museum lawn after dark (the thirty-minute sequence will run twice, starting at 9 p.m. hours), or virtually, where the program will hang for a week to free viewing on the website of the Misnomer Collective.

We called it an “event”. I guess that’s still the case….
