Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center has acquired Study for a David and Goliath, a seminal work on canvas by Paul Cadmus, FAC’s President/CEO, Dr. Michael De Marshe, announced today. He also announced the acquisition of Moonrise, Hernandez, New Mexico by Ansel Adams. These are both significant additions to the Museum’s collection as a whole and will enhance FAC’s individual holdings of these artists.

Dr. De Marsche says, “The Taylor Museum is seeking to acquire a diverse range of exhibitions and programs, strengthened collections, a restored building; whatever makes an exciting journey for the collection. Its
acquisition is the result of seven months of cultural change at the Center which reflects the desires and sophistication of a growing city.”

Taylor Museum Curator, Cathy Wright says, “Paul Cadmus’s Study for a David and Goliath is an exceptional piece by a major 20th Century American artist. It embodies many art historical references to Classicism, narrative painting, and the like. The Cadmus piece will assume a significant place in the Museum’s collection among its masterpieces. This extraordinary acquisition highlights the range and diversity of the Museum’s collecting interests.”

Study for a David and Goliath was acquired using the acquisition funds dedicated to increasing the breadth of the Permanent Collection of the Taylor Museum. Study for a David and Goliath is Cadmus’s second largest composition and is achieved on the scale of life measuring 50” X 54”. The acrylic on canvas painting offers a sprightly description of his relationship with his model, Jon Andersson.

Also being added to the Permanent Collection of the Taylor Museum is Moonrise, Hernandez, New Mexico by Ansel Adams. While Cadmus’s Study for a David and Goliath represents a negative outcome of frustration, Moonrise, Hernandez, New Mexico represents a positive outcome. The image was captured by Adams while driving home after a frustrating day of shooting. Adams happened to glance sideways out of the car window and saw the scene that was to become this photograph. Measuring 15.5” X 19.25”, Moonrise, Hernandez, New Mexico will join other related works of significance in the southwest genre in the FAC collection to form one of the country’s foremost bodies of work by artists of the Southwest.

Also included in the exhibition, Realism & Illusion: Selections from the Taylor Museum Permanent Collection, are works by Walt Kuhn, John Singer Sargent , Georgia O’Keeffe, and Phillip Pearlstein, all representative of the Taylor Museum’s significant collection of modernist paintings and including favorite works selected from the collection by members of the faculty of the Center’s Bemis School of Art.

Hot Mikado Heats Up Springtime In Colorado Springs With An Updated Styling Of A Seasonal Classic.
Hot Mikado

May 7–23, 2004
Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center – The Rep

Hot is the operative word when East meets West head-on in this hilarious 1940s-style updating of the perennial Gilbert and Sullivan classic – project Director Sandy Bray calls a “colorful display for all your senses”. A jazzy dance musical, Hot Mikado tells the story of Nanki-Poo, a trombone player in a traveling swing orchestra, and his efforts to win the affections of Yum-Yum, a doo-wah singer. His efforts are hindered while trying to escape the silly-putty hands of Ko-Ko, Lord High Executioner, and the passionate pursuits of Katisha, a sultry torch singer. With the music transmuted into blues, Cab Calloway swing, hot gospel, scorching torch songs and ‘Three Little Maids’ turned into an Andrews Sister’s showstopper, this zoot-suited, tap-dancing colorful show is certain to provide the ideal evening out for the whole family.

Ticket Information
Performances are Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. Tickets are $21 for FAC members in advance, $23 for public in advance and $25 at the door. Information and Tickets are available at the Box Office at 30 West Dale Street, by calling (719) 634-5583 or for those outside the Colorado Springs area on-line 24 hours a day by visiting www.csfineartscenter.org.
