A tip of the hat to UCCS Gallery of Contemporary Art Curator Daisy McConnell for the lovely and thought-provoking new Bright Young Things exhibition that opened this past friday at GOCA 121 downtown. It’s rare for a major arts institution in Colorado Springs to feature an exhibiton of artists with local ties under 40. It demonstrates both courage and a belief in the community to generate its own culture inspire more of the same. Here are some images from last Friday’s opening.

You can catch the show Tuesday through Friday from 12 to 7 p.m. next to Nosh in the Plaza of the Rockies through September 14.
