Denver-born artist Jordan Casteel makes her way back home for her first major museum showing at the Denver Art Museum.
On view through August 18, 2019 is Jordan Casteel: Returning the Gaze. The exhibit showcases nearly 30 paintings from the East High School graduate’s body of work from 2014-2018.
With that body of work, the exhibit features Casteel’s portraits that include subject matter ranging from cityscapes and subway scenes to women and local business owners. Take a peek inside the gallery here.
Watch below the teen-led conversation with Casteel as part of the opening of the exhibit. Currently based in Harlem, New York, the discussion includes Casteel’s upbringing in Denver and her memories in and around the Mile High City.
