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.
This exhibition celebrates the history and legacy of master printmaker Mark Lunning’s enduring impact on Denver’s art community since opening his printmaking studio, Open Press, in 1989. With more than 50 artists hand-picked by Lunning himself, the exhibition will feature a wide range of styles and approaches to fine art printmaking. Open Press coincides with the city-wide “Month of Printmaking” celebration in March 2014.
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.
