At this month's Untitled Final Friday, we explore new terrain and celebrate roots inspired by Mi Tierra: Contemporary Artists Explore Place. Below are 7 fantastic reasons you don’t want to miss it. You’ll be able to:
1. Dig deep into Mi Tierra
Join us on a curator walk-through to learn about the exhibition and its main themes. Get the inside scoop from Mi Tierra artist Dmitri Obergfell, whose installation is inspired by the markets on Federal Boulevard.
2. Hear stories & poems about place
Mi Tierra examines diverse narratives of migration and displacement, and to bring that message home is Denver refugee advocacy group Project Worthmore. In a partnership with Jonny 5 of the Flobots, Project Worthmore clients will share stories of being uprooted and finding a new sense of place here in Denver.
In addition, poets Peter Aquino and Stephen Garcia from Minor Disturbance shout from the rooftops about home.
3. Learn how to take grassroots action
If you feel like taking a stand, Warm Cookies of the Revolution is here to get you started, grassroots style. Local community activists are here to talk legacy movements, started and won, by everyday people, here in Colorado and to teach you how you can get started on issues that matter to you.
4. Take a detour with a counselor
Find out more about how place shapes our identity and well-being on detour through the European art galleries with a personal-development counselor.
6. Get back to nature...by eating it!
