Get your culture on.
There’s a very brief article today in the Rocky Mountain News’ online edition (for all I know it’s in the paper version also) about progress on a permanent home for the Museum of Contemporary Art / Denver. Somehow I’d missed the fact that we even had a MCA here.
Further exploration was required…
Their site has some basic ideas of what the new space may look like, and there’s a link to an interview (audio) with the curator and architect. Worth a look and a listen.
This whole thing got me into the arts mood and I remembered/realized that tomorrow is the first friday of February. First Friday, time for the art gallery walk in the Art District on Santa Fe. If you’ve never been it’s an amazing evening of open art galleries, festivities and some food. I’m going to try and make it tomorrow (weather permitting) and post about it over the weekend. When I lived in Portland they did First Thursday’s, but it was only from Memorial Day to Labor Day or something like that, wimps.
Go if you can, you’ll wonder why you ever missed it.
