This week's in-depth coverage of the Colorado culture scene from CPR's arts bureau:

  • A new exhibition at Denver’s RedLine gallery looks at the entire five-decade span of mixed media artist Judy Chicago’s career. CPR arts editor Chloe Veltman talked with Chicago, who is credited as being the mother of the feminist art movement.

  • Two Colorado performance artists visit the CPR Performance Studio to demonstrate how they portray the Prince of Darkness in separate productions this fall.

  • On Thursday, the Denver Museum of Nature and Science unveiled “Snowmastodon,” a new 5,000-pound bronze sculpture. CPR arts reporter Corey H. Jones speaks with the sculpture’s creator, artist Kent Ullberg, who spent two years working with scientists to develop the piece.

  • CPR arts editor Chloe Veltman talks with Colorado Ballet dancer Dmitry Trubchanov and Matt Radcliffe, an actor for the Colorado Springs Fine Art Center, about how they use their respective disciplines to play Dracula in two very different interpretations for the stage of Bram Stoker's famous novel.
