After 33 years of relying exclusively on print to present student and alumni work, we made the courageous decision to explore alternatives. This year’s theme of “performativity” offered the ideal opportunity to create an online issue, one that can effectively showcase the growing amount of digital-based and time-based art, as well as give the opportunity to feature spoken word poetry and music.
Metrosphere is a tri-annual arts and literary magazine that professionally showcases the creative work of students and alumni of Metropolitan State University of Denver. In print since 1984, Metrosphere offers a creative alternative to news outlets. In 2007 and 2011, Metrosphere added the Associated Collegiate Press’s prestigious Pacemaker Award to its record of recognition and achievement. The magazine is supported by Met Media, which exists to provide a comprehensive, multimedia learning experience for MSU Denver students.
