Join SEGD Denver and Denver Design Week 2021 to tour two of Denver’s newest mixed-use projects, Market Station and McGregor Square.
As new commercial and residential developments pop up in Denver, thoughtful planning and design plays an ever-important role in the future of the city. We’ll take a tour of two new multi-use projects, Market Station and McGregor Square, and hear from the professionals involved in their development, planning, design, and fabrication. We’ll learn how each individual layer in these projects is connected—including urban planning, architecture, and experiential graphics—and how they all need to work together seamlessly in order to create a rich sense of place.
When: October 18, 2021, 4:30-6:30 pm
Where: Beginning at Market Station (1661 Market Street)

This is a social-distanced, self-guided tour of the MCA's current exhibit "We the People" by artist Nari Ward.
This event is only open to active SEGD members, who will register online. SEGD Denver will then purchase pairs of tickets for attendees to visit the MCA (reservations required to comply with COVID-19 regulations) at their leisure before September 8th. On the 8th, we will host a guided virtual discussion via Zoom of the exhibit for event participants.

About the exhibit:
Nari Ward: We the People features a selection of sculptures, paintings, videos, and large-scale installations from throughout Ward’s career, highlighting his status as one of the most important and influential sculptors working today.
Since the early 1990s, Ward has produced his works by accumulating staggering amounts of humble materials and repurposing them in consistently surprising ways. His approach evokes a variety of folk traditions and creative acts of recycling from Jamaica, where he was born, as well as the material textures of Harlem, where he has lived and worked for the past twenty-five years. Yet Ward also relies on research into specific histories and sites to uncover connections among geographically and culturally disparate communities and to explore the tension between tradition and transformation.
The exhibition includes several key early works, such as the large-scale environment Amazing Grace (1993), which Ward made and exhibited in an abandoned firehouse. In his more recent work, Ward directly addresses complex political and social realities that resonate on a national level, reflecting the profound changes gentrification has brought to his own neighborhood of Harlem and the increasingly fractured state of democracy in the United States more broadly. He uses language, architecture, and a variety of sculptural forms to reflect on racism and power, migration and national identity, and the layers of historical memory that comprise our sense of community and belonging. Nari Ward: We the People will bring together many of Ward’s most iconic sculptures alongside a number of works rarely seen since they were originally created. The exhibition demonstrates Ward’s status as a key bridge between generations of American sculptors and a vital advocate for art’s capacity to address today’s most urgent issues.
In the time of COVID-19, we've had to make some adjustments to how our events take place, taking them online to deliver the same quality content and connectedness that SEGD and SEGD Denver are known for. Luckily, SEGD Fellow and former SEGD President Wayne Hunt graciously agreed to be our guinea pig for our first ever virtual event and boy was it a success. With over 50 participants from all over the country, we were able to engage in a dynamic conversation about design, art, teaching and experiential graphic design. We can't wait for our next virtual event - stay tuned!
