Our last dueling divas series saw Bette Davis and Joan Crawford duking it out. Bette won, but it wasn’t a KO…both stars brought their best to the ring. Now for the dazzler in Denver – we’re pitting Marilyn Monroe against Elizabeth Taylor. Each night of this series, audience members will have a chance to vote for their favorite, and on the last night of the series, we’ll reveal the champion’s film, chosen by our audience. Come and back your fighter!

Flash mobs are a hugely guarded secret, so please don’t mention this to anyone. In celebration of the Denver Art Museum's Untitled event for October, we’re bringing an accordion concert of epic proportions. Since this Untitled is called Shady, we decided that nothing could be as shady as an accordion flash mob. Enjoy the spectacle and sounds of this rare occurrence and hang out at the art museum for a memorable Friday night. General admission for Untitled events is $10 and the Fresh City Life offering is free with admission. For more details, please visit collective.denverartmuseum.org.
