Singing, Dancing, Flips & Fox Games with Capoeira Denver at CelebrARTE

With the FIFA World Cup about to begin, many of us Latinos are thinking of Brazil. If we can’t be in Brazil to see fútbol live, at least we can imagine we are there with some Brazilian capoeira (pronounced cop-away-ra) at CelebrARTE: Tropical with Vampiro and Capoeira Denver. Before then, I thought we’d get to know them a little better. More

Q&A with Muralist Leticia Tanguma

It is through monthly partnerships with artists that CelebrARTE really shines. It is exciting to me to be able to scour Denver’s creative community for the next maestro. As it turns out, this month’s artist, Leticia Tanguma, was hidden right under my nose–her other work is as a security guard for the DAM. You are probably familiar with her artwork. She has assisted her father on several projects, including murals at Denver International Airport. More
