Art Installation for Rumors of Bloomers

April 11 @ 6:30 pm - August 26 @ 9:00 pm MDT

rumors of bloomers

Athena Project, in collaboration with Center for Colorado Women’s History, has curated an interactive art installation called UndergARTments Revealed as part of the Museum’s annual exhibit, Rumors of Bloomers, which explores women’s experiences as expressed through undergarments. Visitors to Rumors of Bloomers will be tasked with considering how women’s undergarments have liberated or controlled, enhanced or concealed, supported or restricted, while also uncovering mysteries, myths, and facts that have been historically kept “undercover.”

Join us for the Artistic Opening Reception on April 11, 2024 from 5PM – 6:30PM at 1310 Bannock Street, Denver, CO, 80204 and meet our talented artists – Teresa Castaneda, Briannah Hill (aka ArtsyQ), Pamela Nocerino, and Sammiotzi – who created various art installations including poetry, sculpture and a photobooth that express the experience of undergarments through the eyes of the artists. UndergARTments Revealed will be available to visit from April 11 – August 26, 2024. Rumors of Bloomers will be on exhibit from March 29, 2024 – March 31, 2025. For more information please visit Center for Colorado Women’s History online.
