The top 10 art exhibits of 2016 in Colorado

One Good Eye, Ray Rinaldi – #4. SANGREE, Unclassified Site Museum, Black Cube Nomadic Museum. September 15 through Dec. 31 There he was, presidential candidate Donald Trump traveling the country and spewing divisive rhetoric about how he was going to shut off Mexico from the U.S. And here they were, the Mexican duo SANGREE actually installing remnants of their country’s ancient Teotihuacan civilization in mock vitrines under Denver’s downtown streets.
