Two exciting art opportunities for CCNNA members from the safety of our own homes……virtual zoom tours! While you’ve been busy adjusting to a new normal, local galleries, museums, and artists have been working hard to transition to a more digital environment. So, take a break from the news, enter full-screen mode and start your art adventure from the coziness of your couch!
The first tour is a Virtual Tour of Public Art in Denver on November 5th starting at 4:00 pm. No charge for CCNNA members. Registration due by no later than October 26th.
"Public art is one of the most obvious expressions of a city's culture and creativity. There is no shortage of it in the Mile High City with over 300 such art works. You will be amazed at the art you have never seen as well as some favorites with their unique history."
Let's take a virtual stroll with Barbara Thorngren, long-time Ollie teacher of Denver Public Art, and hear her describe and give the history of over 40 art works in downtown Denver. A great way to learn about more Denver’s cultural pieces throughout our city.
Website sign-up links will be coming soon for this event. Please check back here to get quick access to this great event!
The second is a virtual tour of Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera and Mexican Modernism
Virtual Behind the Scenes of the Denver Art Museum’s exhibition, Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera & Mexican Modernism From the Jacques and Natasha Gelman Collection
For the first time in Denver, more than 20 artworks by the famous Mexican artist Frida Kahlo, including paintings and drawings, will be on view. “The (traveling) exhibition will focus on the post-Mexican Revolution artworks of internationally celebrated artists Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera and their contemporaries, including Lola and Manuel Álvarez Bravo, Gunther Gerzso, María Izquierdo and Carlos Mérida.”
Join Ann Lambson, Interpretive Specialist at the Denver Art Museum, for a virtual program to learn more about this remarkable exhibition and its prolific artists. Mexican Modernism takes a closer look at the role art, artists, and their supporters played in the emergence of a national identity and creative spirit after the Mexican Revolution ended in 1920.
The virtual program will include an exhibition overview, some behind the scenes insights, and the opportunity to ask questions. It will be presented at 4:00 p.m. on Jan 20th and the prepaid cost for each household is $25. Registration and payment are due by December 30th, but this is in high demand, so don’t wait!
CCNNA will collect $25.00 per household and that money will be sent to the Denver Art Museum.

Garfield Street Bikeway
Through the Denver Moves planning process, Denver Public Works has identified the Garfield Street corridor for development as a neighborhood bikeway to prioritize multimodal north/south movement between City Park and the Cherry Creek Trail.
Neighborhood bikeways (NBWs) include design features that enhance bicycling and walking for a wide range of people while also supporting local vehicle traffic for residents and businesses. When fully constructed, the Neighborhood Bikeway will link key business destinations to neighborhoods, provide active living opportunities to families, strengthen neighborhood character, encourage mode share change along the corridor, and work toward Vision Zero safety goals.
