Cafe Cultura

Experience Spoken-Word Poems with Café Cultura

Through Feb. 26, 2017

Café Cultura is now participating in Cuatro[4]: A Series of Artist Interactions at the Denver Art Museum. Poets from this spoken-word collective have audio performances in an installation on level 4 of the North Building available for visitors to enjoy through February 26, 2017.

Visitors will have the opportunity to experience these spoken-word pieces and our conversations with these artists as they walk through the galleries. Each poet’s piece was inspired by the peoples and cultures represented in our pre-Columbian art collection and by the fact that the descendants of these cultures are still with us today.

Listen to audio clips of some of the spoken-word performances you can hear at the DAM:

Also, you can meet the poets of Café Cultura during the following events:

  • Saturday, February 4, 1:30-3 pm: Spoken Word Workshop (general admission is free)
  • Friday, February 24: Live Performance at Untitled Final Friday
