Colorado-based artist George Bangs graduated with his BA in Communication Design (Minor in Art History) from Fort Lewis College in 2018. While studying, he and fellow student Hayley Kirkman revitalized Exit Gallery space on campus by organizing accessible biannual shows and weekly events. In 2018 he showed small works in Studio &’s Recess Gallery space before moving back to the Front Range. His first solo show Heat Death (2019) at Dateline Gallery examined the decision point for Earth’s climate future, and the upcoming installation The World’s Most Local Museum (co-created with Wyatt Scott) will examine the futility of rigid/institutional frameworks as a means to understanding. Since 2015 he has operated his clothing and art-object shop Terriffico as an independent avenue to sell his works. Most recently, he’s been learning to make music and has illustrated shirts for MCA Denver and Dateline Gallery.
