Perhaps the most interesting storefront in OneColoradoPlazacan be found at 24 Smith Alley. More often than not, you can’t buy anything there. It’s The Artist Studio, a collaboration with the Armory that turns the showroom at 24 Smith Alley into an interactive space. Through the rest of the year (!) the artist-in-residence is David P. Earle. As per usual, visitors are encouraged to play with toys—in this case, handmade wood puzzles that Earle made on-site using large scale photographic images, also taken by Earle. Completed puzzles get mounted on the wall. There’s a theoretical bent to the project—“space and memory,” yadda yadda—but sometimes it’s best to let the work speak for itself. You have until December 31st to assemble your puzzle.
