RedLine is excited to present Press Play, as part of our series of city-wide exhibitions to engage all ages and demographics in play. Research has shown that playful behavior has positive effects on the brain and increases our capacity to learn, no matter our age. Engaging in play also promotes participation, creativity, and social skills for both children and adults. Play, like art, has the potential to promote happiness and curiosity by disrupting daily routines. In doing so, play inspires creative experimentation and the innovation that drives economic development. This site specific exhibition includes a series of digital prints, video projections, video games and large scale installations.
RedLine’s Educational Partnership Initiative for the Creative (EPIC) Arts program provides a platform for RedLine Residents Artists to work in collaboration with educators from Denver area K-12 schools to implement an experiential curriculum that creates a body of artwork through a lens of contemporary social Justice. EPIC Arts takes place Fall and Spring Semesters with a Youth Exhibition at the end of the semester in RedLine’s project space.
ArtCorps Mentoring is a year-long mentorship between community artists and youth at Whittier School, an under-resourced neighborhood school in Five Points. Through a one-on-one mentorship, students explore the arts and design a social engagement project related to their lives and communities. In collaboration with their mentor, students act as socially engaged artists and learn to approach life with the inquiring mind of an artist.
RedLine has a new project Play Space! Children and families are invited to join RedLine in artist-led creative play sessions at Mestizo-Curtis Park on Saturdays, 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM throughout the summer.
"Play Grounds, looks at contemporary artworks that engage in concepts of play that turn common interactions and attitudes towards familiar spaces on their head. Artists have looked at interrupting our everyday lives in order to transform common modes of interaction with the world into grounds for creativity, exploration and the new. These playful types of artworks are innately engaging, and also reflective to adults and children alike. The exhibition features both an indoor exhibition at RedLine and an interactive installation throughout the city of Denver." -- Ruth Bruno and Cortney Lane Stell, curators
