Posted By on Thu, May 31, 2012 at 11:25 AM

We've already talked at length about the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center's James Turrell/Scott Johnson exhibit coming in July, but there's even more to look forward to in the months following.

From a recent press release, here's a calendar of the FAC's upcoming exhibits:

Convolutions
Through Nov. 4

Works chosen from the FAC's permanent collection that respond to the upcoming Turrell/Johnson show, featuring pieces by contemporary artists like Monica Petty Aiello, and deceased creators like Isamu Noguchi.

James Turrell: Trace Elements
Scott Johnson: On Turbulence

July 14 through Sept. 30

Hyakkimaru's Kirie World
July 28 through Sept. 15

As part of this year's 50th anniversary of our Sister City relationship with Fujiyoshida, Japan, a series of cut paper pieces by Hyakkimaru, a world-renowned artist.

Hyakkimaru, Native American

Floyd D. Tunson: Son of Pop
Oct. 27 through Jan. 20, 2013

Tunson, a local artist, is similarly world renowned. Though he lives here quietly, his 40-decade career will be put on display for this first retrospective.

Eric Bransby and Trevor Thomas: A Mural in the Making

The museum will pull out the 50 works gifted to it from the collection of the Vogels in 2009 (read more about the Vogel gifts, with an interview with Dorothy, here).

The second show in a series highlighting FAC history (the first was Sandzén in Colorado). Bunnell also attended the Broadmoor Art Academy, both as a student and a teacher. Though he learned traditional painting from the Academy, his subsequent abstract work "later adopted a more purified form."
