This exhibit will showcase Stevon Lucero’s art work January-March, 2022 and will be a celebration of the legacy that Stevon Lucero gave to the Denver community and beyond. Stevon Lucero is a beloved and iconic Denver visual artist who reached into the depths of his deep connection with the universe to create art that spoke about the innate spirituality of all people, truth and his internal dialogue between himself and God. He was a true master, inspirational mentor, loving father and husband. Stevon Lucero passed away this year on November 28th at the age of 72.

Stevon Lucero’s body of work spans over 50 years. His paintings were inspired by lucid dreams that started in childhood and his study of philosophy, history and metaphysics, guiding him to create two unique art forms: Metarealism and Neo-Pre Columbian or Aztec Art. Stevon Lucero was a philosopher artist; art was a spiritual journey for him.

Stevon is a co-founder of the Chicano Humanities and Arts Council (CHAC). CHAC was established so that under-represented artists would have an inclusive space to share their talents and voice. CHAC was established in 1978, at a time when Chicano and Latino artists were not able to show in other galleries in Denver.  CHAC helped the facilitation of the revitalization of Santa Fe Drive, now a very vibrant established art district. Stevon Lucero lived and worked in Denver since 1976 when he moved his small family from Laramie, Wyoming to ‘the big city.' With a unique vision and voice, he quickly became an active participant in the growing Denver art scene.

His art and his personality have inspired generations of artists. He has lovingly and generously provided his experience and advice to dozens and dozens of young Creatives looking for a mentor, and not just in his field of visual art. He has been a beacon and an inspiration to young writers, musicians and actors, as well. Articulate and thoughtful, he helps both young and old people to learn to express their inner artist; to appreciate the magic and beauty that exists in any act of creation; to recognize the vital importance that every voice brings to the community table.

Chicano Humanities and Arts Council (CHAC) CHAC is an inclusive community of all creatives that are dedicated to preserving, showcasing, educating and reflecting the essence of Chicana/o/x, Latina/o/x and other multicultural/multiracial communities.

Northglenn Arts & Humanities Foundation (NAHF) The mission of the Northglenn Arts & Humanities Foundation (NAHF) is to maintain and nurture the cultural arts for the benefit of our community.  We will accomplish this through the development and support of successful collaborations between the arts, businesses, service groups, schools and artists for optimum utilization of artistic resources.
