The Deluxe Spray-It Fire Rocketship
Artist Jimmy Descant
Salida, Colorado
Location: WOW! Children’s Museum
110 N. Harrison Avenue; Lafayette
Materials: Found object, Assemblage sculpture
Price: $7,500
Artist Statement: A rocketship depicts futurism and the ascent of Man’s mind, as well as what he can do with his hands. This project is one of my large scale sculptures to cast that “WOW” factor immediately for the viewer.
Then… the discussion between people as to the effects and affects of such a piece in the realm of what WAS to be the future and what actually IS, and will be.
My rocketships neither contain or depict any form of guns, bullets, or bombs; they are for the peaceful exploration of time, space, ideas, and cultures. Recycling is a major key, and the finding of the raw materials is a large share of the end result, of which I am a professional in acquiring the vintage and beautiful in out of the way places.
There is no end in America to reusable quality made pieces from the Golden Age of American manufacturing and the inspiration I get from them to create my stylized vision.
I am the Rocketman, and a Severe ReConstructivist! seeking the cool of that inspiration, as well as the message, creating in Salida, CO. and taking it to the world!

Moments in Mexican American History

Moments in Mexican American History in the Southwest

Moments in Mexican American History in the Southwest, an historical look into Mexican-American history, from the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo (1848) to the present, is on display at The Collective in Lafayette.  The exhibit of 23 panels combining text and images, was prepared by CU professors, Dr. Arturo Aldama and Marjorie McIntosh. They are part of a traveling exhibit in Boulder County. The exhibit explores issues such as racism and discrimination as well as activism and social justice.
In addition to the historical exhibit, the paintings of Jerry Rael are on display. Denver artist Jerry Rael was born near the Bosque de los Caballos in a small house located in Jaroso, Colorado, about six miles north of the New Mexico state line. His paintings explore and pay homage to his Mestizo heritage, and address such issues as immigration, Standing Rock, and race.  The bright colors and the mixed emotions in Rael’s subjects are represented with a quality that suggests ghosts intertwined in a world where one doesn’t know which is real or which is fantasy.
The satellite exhibit by the Lafayette Historical Society, made possible with the help of Frank Archuleta, Jr., features some of the Latino families who have contributed to Lafayette as veterans, leaders, athletes, activists, and coal miners.  The exhibit gives a small glimpse into the impact and history that Latino families have made in the community.
The exhibit will be on display until Sunday, August 27.

We’re a quite and comfortable space for people to work. Some of us are professional. Some of us claim the studio as a sacred place away from the world to follow our hearts.
We’re renting studios, not apartments so sleeping here is prohibited. We’re not fancy! This is a basic place to make, not an art gallery.We’re an indoor art space. Things like welding or wood working would be great but probably wouldn’t fit. We’re an art space. These spaces WON’T WORK as massage studios, therapy offices, etc. Contact Jonathan Berner for more information knittingman81@gmail.com.

of Art & Poetry

Moments in Mexican American History in the Southwest, an historical look into Mexican-American history from the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo (1848) to the present, is on display at The Collective in Lafayette. The exhibit of 23 panels combining text and images, was prepared by CU professors Dr. Arturo Aldama and Marjorie McIntosh. They are part of a traveling exhibit in Boulder County. The exhibit explores issues such as racism and discrimination as well as activism and social justice.

Rocket

Art on the Street

The 2017 Art on the Street sculptures line Public Road in Old Town Lafayette. Take a stroll or view the website to enjoy the sculptures.

The Deluxe Spray-It Fire Rocketship

Artist Jimmy Descant
Salida, Colorado
Location: WOW! Children's Museum
110 N. Harrison Avenue; Lafayette
Materials: Found object, Assemblage sculpture
Price: $7,500

 Artist Statement: A rocketship depicts futurism and the ascent of Man's mind, as well as what he can do with his hands. This project is one of my large scale sculptures to cast that "WOW" factor immediately for the viewer.
Then... the discussion between people as to the effects and affects of such a piece in the realm of what WAS to be the future and what actually IS, and will be. 
My rocketships neither contain or depict any form of guns, bullets, or bombs; they are for the peaceful exploration of time, space, ideas, and cultures. Recycling is a major key, and the finding of the raw materials is a large share of the end result, of which I am a professional in acquiring the vintage and beautiful in out of the way places.
There is no end in America to reusable quality made pieces from the Golden Age of American manufacturing and the inspiration I get from them to create my stylized vision.
I am the Rocketman, and a Severe ReConstructivist! seeking the cool of that inspiration, as well as the message, creating in Salida, CO. and taking it to the world!

Surveying Our Future

The 40th parallel became the primary baseline for surveying the land in the eastern portion of the new territory, and a road was eventually cut along the survey baseline.Baseline Road runs almost exactly along the 40th line of latitude. This sculpture, a surveyors transit, pays tribute to the rich history encompassed by Baseline Road. Generously Sponosred by Merrick & Company
