James Dixon: Sculptures and Paintings

May 6, 2019

As a visual artist, James Dixon has used his cultural experience and knowledge to achieve universality rather than create a barrier to mainstream culture. Because his work is not bound by ethnic stereotypes, his audience is able to appreciate his art as an expression that unites rather than divides diverse communities and interests. In this way, Dixon is a global citizen whose work becomes a crossroads of exploration into the ever-expanding realm of worldwide artistic creation.

James’ work will be on display in the Fireplace Lounge of Dayton Memorial Library through May.

Cultivating Champions exhibit

February 4, 2019

The Cultivating Champions exhibit, on display for the month of February, highlights the champion tress that are a part of the arboretum on Regis’ Northwest Denver campus.

“The exhibit is not the history of the Arboretum but a presentation of what a tree does and what humans can do to preserve an environment that is enhanced by their presence,” said Elizabeth Cook, University archivist. “I really think that people will leave with a greater appreciation of our trees and an enriched knowledge of arboretums in general.”
