‘Revolution: Rise Against the Invasion’ presented by Colorado College at Colorado College - Gaylord Hall, Colorado Springs CO

Ortiz’s work and storyline transports the viewer back more than 300 years to the historical events of the 1680 Pueblo Revolt and then hurtles forward through time to the year of 2180, introducing a cast of characters along the way, each representing one of the 19 Pueblos in New Mexico.

For nearly two decades, Virgil Ortiz has sought a way to tell the story of the 1680 Pueblo Revolt through his artwork and simultaneously make it more relevant and interesting to the next generation by using contemporary art to blend historic events with sci-fi fantasy – think Star Wars.
