Architectural installations, live music, and a tomato fight are just a few of the fun activities going on in the city this month. If you are wondering what to do in Denver the last few weeks of summer, why not do it all?
Biennial of the Americas: Draft Urbanism
Denver has become one giant art exhibition in celebration of the Biennial of the Americas. Featuring the collective works of several architects and prolific artists of all mediums, Draft Urbanism, will present four large architectural installations throughout the city that will investigate the challenges of urban planning specific to downtown Denver. The event will showcase local Colorado artists, as well as, some big name artists, like Douglas Coupland and James Franco. The art exhibits and installations will be on display until September 2nd.
Music Nights with Super Friends Music Alliance
For a truly one-of-a-kind musical experience you won’t want to miss Music Nights with Super Friends. Local Denver musicians who have never performed or rehearsed together before put on a completely improvised performance. A unique show with different artists is held every Friday night, 6-9pm through the end of August on the rooftop of the Museum of Contemporary Art Denver.
Brews, music and, of course, tomatoes, lots and lots of tomatoes is what Tomato Battle is all about. For some good old-fashioned messy fun don some clothes you don’t mind getting dirty and get your tomato-throwing arm ready. The Battle takes place on August 10th, 12-6pm, at the National Western Complex. The event features live music, games, a beer garden, costume contest and 100,000 pounds of tomatoes.
