Art, music, cats, dogs, wildlife and the return of an old favorite park with a new look will highlight this week in the Loveland area.

Here's a jam-packed list of things to do.

Viestenz-Smith Reopens

Viestenz-Smith Mountain Park, which sustained much damage in the 2013 flood, will reopen to the public Saturday, Sept. 29.

The park, at 1211 U.S. 34 west of Loveland, was destroyed in the 2013 flood and has been rebuilt.

'Gestural Interactions'

The artwork of Betty Woodman will be featured in the main gallery at the Loveland Museum, 503 N. Lincoln Ave., Loveland, opening to the public on Saturday, Sept. 29.

The exhibition, titled "Gestural Interactions," will include ceramic sculptures and prints, highlighting Woodman's facility with a wide range of media, her embrace of the commonplace, and her integration of painting and multi-dimensional form.

The exhibit will remain on view through Sunday, Dec. 30.

Woodman, who died earlier this year 2018, was a leading American ceramist and sculptor, best known for her exuberant vases and vessels, with bright, loose surface decoration. She also was a teacher and professor at the University of Colorado in Boulder.

In 2006, "The Art of Betty Woodman," a retrospective dating back to her functional works of the 1950s, was organized and presented at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the first time the institution mounted an exhibition for a living woman artist.
