B2 Conference Room

Filmmakers have always turned to Broadway for inspiration and story ideas. And producing song and dance numbers for film is as old as sound recording on film itself – beginning with the movie The Jazz Singer in 1927. Fresh City Life takes a fresh look at four classic films – all stage hits interpreted by Hollywood for mass film audiences.

Denver Art Museum, 13th Avenue at Acoma Plaza

If you’ve got a bit of defiance in you, come to our event at the Denver Art Museum and find out whom your rebellious artist guide is. We’ll ask you a few fun questions like ‘Would you be more likely to not make your bed or not vote in the next general election?’ – and your answers will connect you with your rebel artist. Once matched, you will create a mojo pendant using a thumbnail version of art by your rebellion mentor! What you do with your newfound defiant nature is no business of ours. DAMS Untitled is a great Friday night event every month.

Fresh City Life is pleased to host Helen Gillet, one of the most talented cellists touring the U.S. and the world. The modern usage of the phrase ‘avant-garde’ may have lost all of its power for being used to describe things that are shocking instead of genuinely new, different and deeply creative.

The fiber technique that is often referred to as a knit and crochet fusion, Tunisian crochet is making a resurgence with crafters. It is commonly used to create a substantial fabric, perfect for outerwear and décor items; but many fans have discovered it’s more poetic translation into lace and openwork patterns. Explore the revival of this intriguing handwork technique while creating a chic wall hanging in a beautiful, reclaimed yarn of wool and silk that will showcase all the stitches you’ve learned. Materials cost: $25; all yarn and tools included. No beginning students please.
