Abstract Expressionism & How Early TCKs Changed Art History

France and Italy have been known to be influential in the art world for centuries — the former birthing avante-garde and works by Rodin, Monet and others, and the latter blessing us with pieces, such as the Mona Lisa and the David sculpture. American art didn’t gain traction or credibility until the late 1930s with the rise of the Abstract Expressionist movement.

Ana Mendieta: A Champion for CCKs

Born in Havana, Cuba in November 1948, Ana Mendieta was a well-known performance artist throughout the 1960s, ’70s and ’80s. At age 12, she and her sister were forced to flee Cuba after her father joined an anti-Castro counter-revolutionary force, and the two siblings spent their first few weeks in the United States at a refugee camp in Florida until they were sent to an orphanage in Dubuque, Iowa — a location with a culture very different from the life Ana knew back in Cuba. She wouldn’t reunite with her mother and brother for five years and her father for another 18.

How Journalists Feel About Newsroom Diversity

When you think of the appearance of a newspaper editor, what type of person comes to mind?

Denver is near the mountains, not in them. The Mile High City is located on high rolling plains, 12 miles east of the foothills — a series of gentle mountains that climb to 11,000 feet. Just beyond is the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains, picturesque snowcapped peaks that rise to 14,000 feet (fourteeners as described by locals). Denver might not be in the mountains, but the mountains still dominate the city.
