Jessica Hunter-Larsen ’90, curator of Colorado College’s InterDisciplinary Experimental Arts (IDEA) Space, has received the award for “Pushing the Envelope” from the Pikes Peak Arts Council. She was recognized for three exhibitions: “Re-Orientations,” “Transmission/Frequency: Tesla and His Legacy,” and “Extending the Line.”
An atmosphere of creative exploration at the IDEA Space allows Hunter-Larsen and members of the CC and Colorado Springs community to pursue intriguing questions in a much different manner than a formal academic setting would allow.
“I feel like this award signifies that IDEA is living up to its full title: InterDisciplinary Experimental Arts,” Hunter-Larsen said. She noted that the purpose of the program is “to create a community of seekers, rather than to present information.”
