If you haven’t yet seen it, don’t miss this last chance to catch the retrospective of artwork by the late Louis Cicotello at the Gallery of Contemporary Art at UCCS (complete details HERE), a local artist and teacher whose work and presence touched every corner of the arts community. The slide show above provides a great primer if you’re unfamiliar with his work, but there are dozens more works in the show not pictured. Below the closing event information you’ll find our original remembrance of Cicotello after his death last March.
Exhibit Closing Day, Tuesday, March 27th 2012, 12 to 6pm
GOCA is hosting a closing exhibition sale of approximately 20 works from the collection of Millie Yawn. The works will stay on sale through the close of the exhibit on TUESDAY, MARCH 27TH.

This retrospective exhibition features artworks from 1971 – 2008, highlighting the significant periods in Louis Cicotello’s prolific and fascinating art career. A 72-page, full color catalog publication will accompany the exhibition. Cicotello was well-known and beloved regionally, having moved to Colorado Springs from Kansas City, MO. in 1984 to serve as Chair of the Visual Arts Department at UCCS. Cicotello was Professor of Fine Arts through 2007 at UCCS and inspired countless students in their own careers. As an artist, Cicotello pushed the boundaries of the media he worked with–from human-scale plexiglass towers of his early years to mixed-media assemblage, collage, and free-standing sculpture.
This survey features work that has rarely been seen in regional exhibitions, with multiple collectors loaning their work from across the country for the exhibition.
