Ann Komara, associate professor and chair of landscape architecture at CU Denver, wrote an essay, “Water Events: Flow and Collection in Skyline Park,” for a special issue of Landscape Journal examining the influence of Lawrence Halprin on the philosophy and practice of Landscape Architecture. The park was a significant component of the Downtown Denver Urban Renewal Authority’s work in 1970 for the revitalization of a 37-block area in the heart of the once thriving downtown. The article includes images of those early renderings. … Carol Dass, instructor, Department of Visual and Performing Arts at UCCS, will present “Mother: Photographs by Carol S. Dass” through May 19 at the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center.

The forum in Oxford is designed to promote reflection, collaboration, exchange and dissemination of ideas on the teaching and learning of mathematics, from primary to university level.  At CU Denver, Johnson teaches mathematics for elementary teachers as well as curriculum and methods in secondary mathematics. … Senga Negundi-Fittz, lecturer in the Department of Visual and Performing Arts at UCCS, had several pieces of her work on display at the Thomas Erben Gallery, New York City.
