Jeff Gipe is a visual artist currently living and working in Brooklyn, NY. He grew up in Arvada, Colorado near the Rocky Flats nuclear weapons plant where his father worked for twenty years. As an artist, Rocky Flats has been a motivating force for Gipe. In October 2015, he installed Cold War Horse, a DIY memorial to recognize the Rocky Flats site, it’s history, and it’s former workers. Gipe is currently working on a portrait and biography project that concentrates on Rocky Flats activists as well as local residents, doctors and scientists.
