Word Dance: Selections from the Collection of JoAnn Gonzalez Hickey Opens at the Denver Art Museum March 19, 2017

The artists in Word Dance have all developed a distinctly individual language for drawing that invites viewers into their private world. The works-on-paper from JoAnn Gonzalez Hickey’s collection that have been chosen for this exhibition are all concerned with words, letters or a connection with language. There is a rhythm and movement in these works. Permeating these pieces is lightness and energy with the suggestion of dance moves—hence the exhibition title, Word Dance.
