El Anatsui: When I Last Wrote to You about Africa 

When: Sept. 9-Dec. 30 2012

"Art grows out of each particular situation, and I believe that artists are better off working with whatever their environment throws up." That 2003 quote comes from Ghanaian artist El Anatsui, whose career has been largely defined by his found-object sculptures and installations. This is a guy who connects liquor-bottle caps, metal scraps and other salvaged items and weaves them into rumpling, glittering mega-tapestries, some of which will be on display at the Denver Art Museum (100 W. 14th Avenue Pkwy., Denver, denverartmuseum.org) in the 40-year retrospective El Anatsui: When I Last Told You About Africa. It opens today (staying up through the end of the year) and is included in general museum admission: $3 to $13, or free for members. — Edie Adelstein
