About Joel Swanson
Joel Swanson is a Denver-based artist and writer whose work chiefly explores the failings and glitches of linguistic systems. His work critically subverts the technologies, materials, and underlying structures of language to reveal its idiosyncrasies and inconsistencies. His work ranges from interactive installations to public sculptures that playfully and powerfully question words and their meanings.

The museum’s entryway currently features a commissioned work by Swanson. The artist was engaged to develop this work in response to the closures required by the coronavirus.

Virtual Studio Tours


Virtual Studio Tours are a 30 min interactive program that explores local contemporary artist studios. Artists take viewers behind the scenes of their studio practice with insights into their processes, inspirations and artwork. Moderated by BMoCA’s Community Engagement and Events Coordinator, this Instagram Live series is an initiative to support local artists and give viewers the opportunity to take a closer look at art practices and ask questions to contemporary artists.
