If you’re looking for some fun activities this Fall in Denver, we’ve got you covered. We understand you have a lot of (probably indoor) activities to choose from. Luckily, we’re looking out for ya! Check out these events below if you want to immerse yourself in some art as the leaves fly through the air.
“7000 Reasons” Pop-Up
Showing: Until November 11th
Over the Summer of 2018, artists Jonathan Saiz and Wes Magyar commissioned themselves to paint 7,000 original 7×7 portraits for only $143. The 1-4-3 idea revolves around the phrase (1) I, (4) Love, and (3) You. All of the paintings are one-of-a-kind, love filled, and exploding with color and emotion. We feel for you if you missed out on commissioning a portrait of your own. If you want to experience the joy and adventure captured within these works, head to the Arvada Center for the Arts & Humanities before November 11th to check out the pop-up!
Denver Arts Week
Showing: November 2nd-10th
It’s almost that time of year again, people! Denver Arts Week is approaching quickly and we’re gearing up for an amazing experience. There are more than 300 events at a wide variety of art galleries, museums, theaters and concert halls, many of which are deeply discounted. Some things to look forward to include is free admission to an array of art galleries on (First) Friday, November 2nd. Those include the Art District on Santa Fe, Belmar Block 7 Art District, and Tennyson Street Cultural District. There’s also free entry to the museums on Saturday the 3rd!
“Special Guest” at the Next Stage Gallery
Showing: Now through December 31st
We get it, you can’t wait for Meow Wolf to open in 2020 in the Sun Valley neighborhood. However, you can still experience some immersive art curated by those same folks at this very moment. Head over the the Denver Performing Arts Complex and check out the Next Stage Gallery while this is still going on!
“As one of Meow Wolf’s first footprints in Denver, select local artists, including Molly Bounds, Derrick Velasquez, Laura Shill, Diego Rodriguez-Warner and Dmitri Obergfel, will collaborate with community institutions like CU Denver’s College of Arts & Media and the Denver Performing Arts Complex to create Special Guest, a diverse and evolving installation, built as a movable talk show stage featuring poetry readings, film screenings, and dance performances.”
