Trash Becomes Treasure

The Lincoln Center’s current Art Gallery exhibition, Rescue and Redemption, features 5 talented and imaginative artists who rescue objects from the junk heaps of society and turn them into beautiful and interesting pieces of art.

The artists, Bob Coonts, Erick Johnson, Susannah Mira, Lee Somers, and Les Sunde, are featured in this exhibition for their admirable ability to create beauty from the residue of modern culture. Objects rescued from the trash find redemption and rebirth becoming treasures at the hands of these artists. Tractor blades become parts to a fantastical flying boat; rubber and cork gaskets become a gracefully undulating mobile, and piano parts become body parts to a new breed of wild animal.

In addition to exhibiting their unique and diverse artworks, all five artists have been challenged to create a new art piece from the remains of defunct pianos from the popular Fort Collins public art project “Pianos About Town." The resulting artworks from this challenge will be on display in the exhibition.

Rescue and Redemption runs through June 2, 2012 in the Lincoln Center Art Gallery and Lobby.

Admission is always free. Gallery hours are Tuesdays through Fridays 10 a.m. – 6 p.m., Saturdays noon to 6 p.m., and evenings of performances.

Figaro, Figaro, Fiiiiiigaro!
You know the tune, but have you seen the opera?

Opera Fort Collins will close its 2011-12 season here on our main stage on June 1st with one of the greatest comic operas of all time, The Barber of Seville.

Figaro, Seville’s favorite barber, gets everyone in a lather as he helps Count Almaviva (initially disguised as a poor student) win the object of his affection, the beautiful Rosina. Unfortunately, this delectable ingénue is kept securely sequestered by her sleazy guardian Doctor Bartolo and oily music master Don Basilio. So the barber and the “student” must infiltrate the household in order to reach her. A series of identity changes, duplicity, subterfuge, close shaves – and even bits of shrewd manipulation by Rosina herself – set the stage for sharp-edged comedic chaos as Figaro devises ways to bring the young lovers together.

Sung in Italian with English supertitles, The Barber of Seville features some of the most delightful music ever written for the stage. A classic Rossini score, virtuostic singing, and an energetic cast of established national and local emerging artists make this a not-to-be-missed event.

A pre-opera talk will be held 45 minutes prior to the performance.
