The Untitled summer journey continues on July 25 with Untitled #69 (Uncharted). This month is not so much about venturing into uncharted territory as it is about revisiting what we think we already know. Case in point: pop artist Tom Wesselmann, the subject of the Denver Art Museum’s latest exhibition Beyond Pop Art: A Tom Wesselmann Retrospective. Wesselmann is best known as a painter—his claim to fame is his series Great American Nude. More
Summer is… brings the allure of a Colorado summer staple—campfires—to downtown Denver. Made from beetle-kill pine, recycled camping rope, and other recycled materials, these urban campfires offer the perfect place for rest and relaxation. Visitor-submitted story tags create a canopy of leaves, making Martin Plaza a great spot to enjoy the season.
Story tags and pens are provided on the plaza. More
