Best of 2015: Art Exhibition

The selection of the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center and Eloquent Objects as "best" in these respective categories makes perfect sense in 2015 (The Year of O'Keeffe, according to the FAC). Of the four institutions to host the traveling exhibition nationally, the FAC is geographically closest to O'Keeffe's landscape muse. And the museum's deep ties to the American Southwest radiated from the lower galleries throughout the building thanks to impressive and diverse pieces from its permanent collection. They served both as stunning support to the visiting works of O'Keeffe and 25 of her contemporaries, as well as the aesthetic connector responsible for transforming the FAC into an eloquent object in its own right. As former Indy Arts Editor Edie Adelstein noted in her coverage of the exhibition in June, "The arts center itself may be the real star of the show." Indeed. — Vanessa Martinez
