This is a serious question: who doesn't like listening to live music from local Colorado bands on the best rooftop in Denver with a refreshing refreshment in hand? Seriously, if you know anyone who doesn't think that's a good time, can you make sure to tell them NOT to come to MCA Denver's Friday night summer B-Side Series. They'll hate it.
We've done a lot of crazy things at MCA Denver but never have we ever thrown a pool party in hyperspace...UNTIL NOW. That's right, we hollered over to our friends at Zeppelin (who happen to have a badass pool over at TAXI) and asked if we could throw a pool bash to celebrate Clark Richert's exhibition. They said, "Hell yes." And we said, "Far out." So, here we are. On July 13, get ready to don your best 60s Glamour Splash attire, drink all you can drink (responsibly), play some volleyball, vogue in the photo booth, and of course, CANNONBALLLLLLLLL.
Does going on a long 14,000-mile hike sound like the pits? If so, we have just the thing. Forget the outdoors and come get your spin on in the museum for Stationary Sundays: Exercise for the Indoorsy. Rather than bears and poison oak, surround yourself with art, loud music, and imaginary hills as you sweat your butt off in the great indoors.
Mixed Taste is back, in collaboration with Denver Center for the Performing Arts Off-Center, for another summer of enlightening and entertaining talks. Discover something new and shake up your weekday entertainment with one (or all) of these tag-team talks. Even mismatched subjects will find common ground in a lecture series that can go pretty much anywhere. On Wednesday nights at 7PM, two speakers get twenty minutes each to enlighten you on unrelated topics, but can't make any connections to each other. Ideas start to blend afterwards when audience members ask questions to both speakers and anything goes.
Have you ever looked at a work of contemporary art in a museum and wanted to bring it home? Well, now's your chance. MCA Denver's Octopus Initiative is offering any resident of the Denver metro area the chance to borrow and live with a work of art made by a Denver-based artist for ten months. FOR FREE. You in? Check out the art and enter to win the monthly lottery.
