There’s a lot to look forward to at the Fine Arts Center this fall, not the least of which is the Floyd Tunson Retrospective Son of Pop, which opens on October 27. But we also want to implore you to see, if you haven’t already, the spectacular current batch of exhibitions, a startling percentage of which is local, and some of which comes down soon.

There are the Herbert Bayer prints (as featured on The Big Something in June 2009) in the Convolutions exhibit on the first floor. (Through November 4)

There are the spectacular kirie paper cutouts of Japanese artist Hyakkimaru in the Kirie World exhibit in the glass corridor. (Through September 15)

There’s a photographic retrospective of the architecture of John James Wallace

And not least, the spectacular joint exhibition of the work of Colorado College Professor and sculptor Scott Johnson and eminent light artist James Turrell, whose installation “Trace Elements” truly can’t even be fathomed without direct experience.(Through September 30)
