The Five Points Jazz Festival annually celebrates the rich cultural heritage of Denver’s historic Five Points neighborhood on the third Saturday in May. Join Denver Arts and Venues at the McNichols Building on Thursday, February 27, March 20 and April 17 at 5:30pm for a taste of what you can expect at this year’s festival along with light hors d’oeuvres and beverages.
More than 40 fashion scarves designed by international artists and manufactured by the renowned and innovative Ascher Company, London during World War II. Included in the exhibition are Alexander Calder, Henry Matisse, and Henry Moore, who along with other artists lifted up the spirits of the wearer during a time of austerity.
Whether you’re planning a large festival or intimate wedding, the McNichols Civic Center Building is a must see. Newly reopened in 2012, the contemporary artwork and open spaces are a wonderful canvas for any event. Two large, open floors with exposed steel columns allow amazing opportunities for centralized events in the Mile High City. Artworks dominate the walls, giving the classic space a modern feel.
The New West: Contemporary Perspectives of the Rocky Mountain Region (Boettcher Cultural Pavilion 2nd floor) features work by Western contemporary artists, each expressing a very personal connection to the Rocky Mountain Region. From abstracted landscapes to depictions of the modern cowboy to symbolic images of the West, these artists create an interesting and thought-provoking visual juxtaposition.
