Architecture and art are one and the same according Ana Penalba, PlatteForum’s current artist in residence. The Spanish-born, now New York-based, artist created a series of animated, 3-D sculptures and experimental drawings that upend the idea that form follows function. Everyday objects such as bicycle wheels, kitchen utensils, and plastic bottles are repurposed into architectural forms, including a multi-legged, insectlike toaster and a construction lamp light tower. Also on display is the work of students from the Colorado I Have a Dream Foundation, who have been guided by Penalba to create an imaginary Denver entitled A City for Us. Mon-Fri noon-4 p.m.
