Over the past several years, her work has focused around metal casting, casting through subsititution and combining cast materials with mixed media.

Narrative Identity through the Figure - Juried by Laura Phelps Rogers
The goal of this year's annual sculpture show, through the vision of the guest juror, is to use the figure as a means of exploring identity. The artists are challenged to recall past experiences and through the use of the figure, build a biographical or autobiographical story. That story is meant to turn views into visual listeners and evoke emotions and thoughts about one's own self.
Free and open to the public Mon- Fri 8 a.m - 5 p.m. and Sat. 10 a.m. -2 p.m. from June 6 - August 17

NEIGHBORHOOD MEETING REZONING FOR 300 S. ZINNIA WAY
The City of Lakewood received an application from Terry Kunz to rezone the vacant property at 300 S. Zinnia Way from Planned Development (PD) to Mixed Use Residential in the Suburban context (M-R-S). The adjacent properties to the north, east and south of the subject site are zoned M-R-S. The current zoning permits multi-family and the proposed zoning permits multi-family. The purpose to rezone to M-R-S is to develop multi-family under the M-R-S standards, which would allow for building placement to be closer to the street and for the parking to be placed behind the building to create a better streetscape. The map on the back of this notice outlines the boundary of the area included in the rezoning request. Title 17-2-2 of the Lakewood Zoning Ordinance provides the review criteria for a rezoning application and also requires the applicant to hold a neighborhood meeting prior to submitting a formal application. The purpose of the meeting is to provide neighbors and nearby homeowners associations with information about the proposed rezoning and an opportunity to ask questions of the applicant and City staff. This notice is going to residents and owners of property within 500 feet of the site, and to neighborhood and homeowners associations that are registered with the City and located within ½ mile of the site. The meeting is scheduled as follows: 6 – 7:00 p.m. Thursday, June 27, 2013 City of Lakewood, Civic Center North DAT Conference Room 480 S. Allison Parkway Lakewood, CO 80226 MEETING AGENDA 1. Introduction & Purpose of Meeting 2. Explanation of the Rezoning Process 3. Presentation by the Applicant 4. Questions and Discussion with Citizens 5.
