Sarah Rockett is a socially engaged, interdisciplinary artist and educator living in Denver. Her work focuses on social commentary by investigating value and equality in American society.
As the museum’s Creative-in-Residence, Rockett will be using art as a method for engaging social interaction, creating meaningful human connection, and prompting dialogue around the urban housing crisis in Denver.
Through exploring ideas of “home” and “place,” museum visitors are invited to join Rockett in the making process and participate in dialogue about the subject.
During her residency (July 9-September 27), watch for Rockett onsite at the museum on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1-3:30 pm and on Free First Saturdays on August 4 and September 1.
She will also be bringing in other community collaborators during her residency on select days:
- August 4th: PJ D’amico (Buck Foundation)
- August 9th: Cole Chandler (Colorado Village Collaborative)
- August 14th: Lauri Lynnxe Murphy (DIY Artist)
- August 21st: Denver Homeless Out Loud
