Virgil Ortiz: Revolution presented by Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center at Colorado College at Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center at Colorado College, Colorado Springs CO

For the past 15 years, 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 engaging to the next generation by using contemporary art to blend historic events with sci-fi fantasy – think Star Wars, Prometheus, The Avengers, and Justice League. His material choices and techniques draw from the past, while his imagery is both ultramodern and futuristic.
