Join us for a lively yet insightful lecture with renowned artist, Bill Amundson, who will discuss his prolific career spanning four decades. For over forty years Amundson has been working subversively within both the mainstream and periphery of the art world, looking for creative opportunities wherever they might arise. During his 35 years in Colorado he found inspiration in such disparate outlets as arts festivals, gallery shows, street art, absurdist performance and the mediums of radio, television and the printed word. His credits include founding the Fort Collins Suburban Art Guild, performing as one half of the hillbilly duo the Anthracite Boys, placing over 1000 subversive drawings in homes and businesses across Denver over the course of 8 Cherry Creek Arts festivals and public projects for the Denver Theater district and the Mellow Mushroom restaurant chain. He has provided illustrations for numerous periodicals and written humorous and critical pieces for such publications as the Rocky Mountain News and the legendary underground punk zine Expresso Tilt. He has also been included in six exhibitions at the Denver Art Museum since 1996 and delivered a Logan Lecture at the DAM in 2012. Mr. Amundson has had solo exhibitions throughout North America, including New York, Toronto, Los Angeles, Phoenix and Philadelphia.
