These Things Happened: Last Friday Night We Partied, Hardly (a generally OK time was had by all)

Ann as ray of sunshine, Trish bringing the emo.

Friday, May 31: nighttime. Fresh City Life was on hand to celebrate Untitled #57 at the Denver Art Museum. We hosted ennui-inspired button making. Were you there?

We had a great time pretending to be 'meh' -- because it was too much fun hanging out with a huge crowd. Excellent live music, a chance to explore the museum at night and spectacular food. If you didn't make it, here are some photos. And join us in August!

Madame Defarge University for Knitters

Designed by Ann Myhre

When Fresh City Life talked to our expert fibers teacher, Ann Myhre, (Knitty Cat) about a knitting workshop that would incorporate multiple knitting and finishing techniques, she dreamt up this sweet little bag that allows knitters to rack up a lot of new skills in a compact project.

Finish this great purse in our June workshop and you'll move to the head of the class at Madame Defarge's Knitting Salon. Rarely does a knitting pattern offer up this many chances to practice new techniques, and with our dedicated knitting teachers for your tutors, you'll be graduating from intermediate to advanced knitter this summer. Grow your knitting skills for better fall crafting!

The Fearless Flight of Icarus Explored In Staged Reading at DPL

Enjoy a free, staged reading of the play, Icarus, by Edwin Sanchez, this Sunday in the beautiful Vida Ellison Gallery overlooking the Civic Center Park.

This is the Denver debut of Edwin Sanchez's play; it is the story of Icarus told in modern times. And like Oscar Wilde's quote, this story of Icarus is not about hubris and the incumbent fall -- it is instead focused on the courage and ingenuity it takes to attempt such a dramatic flight.
