Come celebrate tonight with the Denver Art Society as we help to kick off Denver Arts Week 2015! I will greet you at 734 N. Santa Fe Dr. and throw you a real cultural spark plug called First Friday. The Santa Fe Arts District throws a big block party on the first friday of every month. Art galleries stay open later to show their new exhibits. The streets fill with conversations shouted to be heard. Between monied patrons, mariachi, and gutterpunk jazz bands busking in the streets-Wait! I will only say that First Friday is a thing one needs experience, not be told about. Just meet me tonight at DAS.
Formed as an artist collective in 2009, DAS member artists work within the Denver community to help people pursue creative endeavors. When you come tonight (or any other time) there will be objet d’art in almost every medium imaginable; Sculpture, scenic photography and sounds of live music as well as paintings pastels or performance art. And best of all? You can buy almost all of the stuff you see and prettify some part of your home. Or you can gift it to loved ones, spreading love and beauty around them now. Come see us tonight before it snows for real, before the winter holidays begin to Walmart our senses and obligate feeling glad tidings of good cheer. A guy named Nick told me That the Christmas season officially starts Nov. 11 this year so we all better enjoy tonight…
Here is a video tour of DAS from a month ago that shows the diversity of art displayed at any one time.
Also please save the date of Dec. 17 for the 3Delights Night2015 Winter Arts Glimmer
Every Sunday night there is an open drum circle at the Denver Art Society which is hosted by Denver Drum & Dance. All are welcome. Let me say that again. All are welcome and encouraged to come. Bring a drum if you have one or just bring yourself. There are extra drums people bring so anyone can participate. Ecstatic dancing and hula hooping are also commonplace here on Sunday nights. There is a potluck snack table for communal utility as well as lots of beautiful artwork to peruse or purchase all around DAS. The evening begins at 6pm with live electronic music from MISTERDOCTER. Feel free to join in with vocals or any other instrumentation during his set. This night is really about open collaboration and creation of music and art. Around 7pm the drum circle begins taking shape and it continues until 9:30. So come experience Denver Drum & Dance Sunday Nights. We will uplift you.
