Director Statement

Immersive art has the power to be transformational. It offers a different experience than what you would receive in a museum or a gallery. My film investigates the community who created the immersive art exhibit, Natura Obscura, at the Museum of Outdoor Arts and shares my excitement that this kind of work is taking place right here in Denver.
