American Mountaineering Museum, 710 Tenth Street, Golden
July 18 through September 30
Opening Reception: Thursday, July 18, 6 to 9 p.m.
Topher Straus and the American Mountaineering Center and Museum were made for each other. Straus’s large, digital landscape prints of mountain parks are applied to aluminum surfaces for an abstracted look that suggests the very canyon walls and mountain peaks the center was built to extol. As a bonus, the reception for Straus’s show will include punch from Golden Moon Distillery, beer from Golden City Brewery and bites from Cheese Ranch.
