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

CelebrARTE: Café Celebrates the Latin Link to Passport to Paris

The Court to Café exhibition in Passport to Paris got many of us at the Denver Art Museum thinking about how art was produced in France over the centuries. In modern Paris, the café became the go-to gathering place for artists to collaborate, exhibit, and just hang out. More

Celebrando un Tesoro Cultural: Rita Flores de Wallace

Conocí a Rita Flores de Wallace a pricipios de la década de los años 1990 en el Museo de las Américas, durante una visita, guiada por ella, de una exhibición relacionada a la celebración del Dia de los Muertos. Me impresionó mucho su conocimiento de esta tan importante tradición Mexicana, pero también su forma tan cálida y accessible con la que compartió la exhibición con nuestro grupo. Casi inmediatamente después de que concluyó su tour, la invite a que formara parte del –en ese entonces- pequeño grupo de guías de los programas en español del Denver Art Museum. More

Join Us as CelebrARTE Celebrates One Year of Fun for Families

Planning this September’s CelebrARTE program, I realized, this will be the first anniversary of the program’s launch! ¡Increíble! Though I have been at the DAM working as Latino cultural programs coordinator for a bit longer, I was able to sit back and take note of the progress that happened in only one year. Of course, all of these achievements are very much a team effort, built upon a solid base that was established over decades. More
