No Ordinary Landscape Exhibition

Specific Environments: Landscape as Metaphor will open on December 2, 2011. This exhibition about the land is not your typical landscape show. Guest juror and award-winning art writer and art critic Leanne Goebel has selected 37 artists from a juried competition, and invited six artists to set the tone for the exhibition. The artworks on display stretch the idea of how we view our environment, surroundings and the ‘scape and scope’ of the land as metaphor for something else entirely. The works presented and ideas expressed are deeply tied to how we experience and interpret our relationship to the land, the environment, and our surroundings. The exhibition is meant to be a catalyst for new ideas, interpretations and understanding of the human relationship to the land.

Join us for the Opening Reception on Friday, December 2 for a Gallery Talk with Leanne Goebel, and the presentation of awards to the artists. The exhibition opens to the public on Friday, December 2 and runs through Saturday, January 14, 2012. Gallery hours are Tue – Fri 10am – 6pm, Sat noon – 6pm, and evenings during performances.

Admission is always free.

New Look for Holiday Tree Display

 

 

 

In 1980, the Lincoln Center Support League's Hall of Trees became a spectacular display of decorated holiday trees that ushered in the spirit of the holiday season. Now in 2011, the Hall of Trees has a new moniker, The Gallery of Trees, and a new look! However, the purpose remains the same - celebrate the holiday season and raise funds for the Lincoln Center Support League.

Now housed in the Lincoln Center's new Art Gallery, fully decorated holiday trees will be on display the week of November 18th - 27th and this year, they will also be for sale. The trees, decorated and donated by local businesses, artists and community members, will be available for purchase throughout the week via silent auction. The bidding closes Sunday, November 27th at 7:30pm and the fully decorated trees will be delivered to the auction winners' homes on November 28th and 29th. All proceeds will benefit the Lincoln Center Support League’s community arts and youth programs.

 

An opening reception will be held on November 17 5pm-7pm.

The Gallery of Trees is FREE and open to the public.
Hours:
November 18th - 27th, 10am - 8pm
Closed Thanksgiving Day.

Come bid on your favorite holiday tree!

This event is a fundraiser for the Lincoln Center Support League, a non-profit organization whose purpose is to work in partnership with the Lincoln Center to Excite, Enlighten and Educate young people through the performing arts in addition to promoting cultural opportunities in the community.

In the Spirit of the Season, Lincoln Center Goes "Ever"Green!

By now you've probably already seen all the great changes we've made to the Lincoln Center, but have you heard of all the "green" things we're doing behind-the-scenes? Our new and improved facility is ramping up our commitment to a "greener" community and a brighter future!

We're proud to announce that we are a new member of the Rocky Mountain Greener Venue Partnership, a voluntary partnership focused on helping Colorado’s entertainment and sports venues improve the sustainability of their facilities. This EPA sponsored group consists of major arenas and event facilities throughout Colorado, including Pepsi Center, Coors Field, Denver Zoo, and Sports Authority Field and many more! As a member, focusing on energy efficiency, air quality, water conservation and waste reduction are all part of our continued efforts toward sustaining and protecting our environment.

Here are a few of the key "green" features of the Lincoln Center:
- A planned LEED Gold Certification (more info)
- Single stream recycling throughout facility for waste reduction
- Required use of reusable, recyclable or compostable service and dishware
- Required composting for all caterers and hospitality services
- Use of Green Seal approved cleaning products only
-Bicycle racks at each entrance and bicycle lockers
- Parking spaces for low-emitting vehicles only
- Energy efficient motion-controlled lighting with a 22% reduction in energy use
- Motion-controlled, water-conserving faucets, toilets and urinals for 43.9% less water use than standard fixtures

Here at Lincoln Center, we are committed to providing convenient, sustainable accommodations to ensure all events are “green” events!

3 Nutcrackers Grace the Lincoln Center's Stages

‘Tis the season for gathering with friends and family, trimming trees, attending holiday parties, exchanging gifts and attending a performance of The Nutcracker. We’re thrilled to tell you that this year it will be delightfully easy to attend The Nutcracker as we’ve got 3 different offerings gracing our stages this season.

First, Mountain Kids will be presenting Nutcracker with a Twist December 2nd - 4th in the Magnolia Theatre. A new twist on an old classic, this show brings ballet, jazz, hip hop, modern, acrobatics, gymnastics, special effects, and more to the stage. In this production Clara and her sister Francine are given the gift of literacy this holiday season and several classic stories come to life.

December 8th -11th, Canyon Concert Ballet presents The Nutcracker in the Performance Hall. Colorado Ballet's Ballet Mistress, Lorita Travaglia, will bring new choreography to the classic holiday tale. Come and enjoy a spicy Spanish Chocolate, a sharp and tangy Chinese Tea and a tastefully robust Waltz of the Flowers.

Contemporary Dance Academy presents Clara and The Nutcracker in the Performance Hall December 16th -17th. This production has all the magic, joy and sweetness audiences have come to love. With choreography from award-winning choreographer Polly Creer Sutton, stunning sets and beautiful new costumes, this production rivals any you will see in the state.

Staff Performance Pick of the Month
BeauSoleil Avec Michael Doucet
- By Gina Cochran, Lincoln Center Technical Director


I am quite excited to see BeauSoleil. I love Zydeco music and have heard them MANY times on Garrison Keilor’s “Prairie Home Companion”. The energy in Zydeco music is contagious and makes it impossible to sit still! I’m looking forward seeing the audience reaction to their show!

I want to go too!
