100 Colorado Creatives: Rebecca Vaughan
#53: Rebecca Vaughan
Denver installation artist Rebecca Vaughan is right at the center of Denver's art community: As a highly credentialed departing RedLine resident and continuing chair of Fine Arts and head of Sculpture at the Rocky Mountain College of Art + Design, she's working alongside longtime professionals and the emerging new guard alike.

Some of her pieces can currently be seen in the Biennial exhibit First Draft, at the McNichols Building through September 2, and in maybe the best group show in recent memory at Ironton where she's participating as one of the studio enclave's newest members. There will be a reception for that show at Ironton on Saturday, August 17, from 6 to 11 p.m. And from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. that same day, Vaughan will bid RedLine farewell at a joint Artists Studio Sale.
