ART

"Signature" by Bug Artist Bug examines the history of genocide in this dramatic installation.

"Transmission" by Michelle Robinson Artist Michelle Robinson is interested in bringing intimacy and animation to forms that are ubiquitous but often invisible or ignored in her series "Transmission," which also incorporates methodical, process-oriented art forms to explore the evidence of the hand in the final photographic work, 9 a.m., Dairy Arts Center, 2590 Walnut St., Boulder; free; 303-444-7328.
