Waldsterben: Sudden Aspen Decline 

When: July 5-Oct. 31 2013

Germans have a particular talent for coining single words to describe complex ideas and dog breeds. Americans have a particular talent for stealing them. De Lane Bredvik illustrates a suitably sturm und drang term for the death of forests in Waldsterben: Sudden Aspen Decline, his immersive installation in the atrium of Plaza of the Rockies (121 S. Tejon St., tinyurl.com/GOCA-aspen). It is particularly apt just now, as climate change has killed nearly a quarter of Colorado's aspen forests in the past decade. Take the time to wander among the 30-foot banners of the ersatz copse for free weekdays from 6 a.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m., now through October. — Caroline Swinford
