Warrior Fashion, Rebel Artists & Comic Mayhem at Untitled #66 (Rebel Rebel)

Native Arts Artist-in-Residence Rose B. Simpson has been hard at work the past two months designing and creating  warrior fashions (above) and customizing an ’85 El Camino (below). See what happens when the rubber (and leather) meet the road in a trailblazing performance on the Denver Art Museum’s plaza at Untitled #66 (Rebel Rebel). It’ll be part runway, part motorway; part fashion show, part car show; and totally rebellious whichever way you cut it.

Also rebellious: street artist Jolt of GuerillaGarden is this month’s MakeARTtalk artist, civic health club Warm Cookies of the Revolution speaks truth to power through hip hop and political poetry and DPL’s Fresh City Life helps you discover your rebel artist spirit guide. Whether you’re more of a Picasso or Pollock, join in the fun with some of the art world’s most radical rebels, the surrealists. There will be a surrealist party game to start off your night and surrealist-inspired comic drawing sessions courtesy of Denver Drink and Draw and Denver Comic Con. Or take your cue from pop artists and hone your comic strip storytelling skills in a workshop with comic artist Stan Yan

See you at Untitled #66 (Rebel Rebel) on April 25!
