"As the Professional Practices Professor at RMCAD, it has been an honor to get to know the powerful work coming from a dedicated group of artists at this institution. What is emerging from the Colorado scene is thoughtful, meaningful art that is impacting national and international artists and collectors. Our community will benefit greatly from having the poignant art at RMCAD being brought to our attention at the Arte Povera show at Hinterland to continue this conversation of contemporary art in Colorado." - Eric Dallimore RMCAD professor and gallery owner/director of Leon Gallery.

"In the dawn of another blooming era in Denver’s history, Make. Do. platforms the economical struggles facing young artists today in a world where money talks. Luckily for us, aesthetic also talk big and through each artist’s inventive vision the Make. Do. exhibition illustrates how their passion and necessity to create overcomes their financial situation by using what is available to them with an art student budget.” – Dayana Ruiz RMCAD Student and Director of Artist Run Exhibitions
