KUVO's visual arts consultant Hilary DePolo booked the guest on her monthly feature "Art Scene"  far in advance of this week's nuclear weapons treaty announcement with Iran.  Her guest, Eric Dallimore of Leon Gallery (1112 E 17th Ave., Uptown) is opening an exhibit of Iranian-American artists called Continental Divide: East of L.A./West of Tehran.

Visual arts are a great tool to foster the idea of individuality, "no matter what color they are, or what their garb is," said DePolo.  

University of Denver professor Laleh Mehran (whose work is pictured above) is among the exhibitors.  The show is also part of the 'Biennial of the Americas' celebrations.  

DePolo also mentioned the "third Friday" opening of "Gone to the Dogs 6," at the Niza Knoll Gallery in Denver's Santa Fe Arts District.
