PROGRAM OF EVENTS
True Stories: Outside, Inside & Between
For our Untitled Creative Takeover this month, The Narrators have us digging deep and speaking up, exploring the interplay between visual art and true stories, and playing with three different levels of storytelling – the stories we share with others, stories we keep to ourselves, and the dialogues that bind us together. Presented in collaboration with Denver Zine Library, From the Hip Photo, FUNK CLUB, and Denver Art Museum’s Adult Programs.
Listen to true stories inspired by surrounding art—as told by local artists, storytellers, and museum staff. Live illustrations by comic book artists Lonnie MF Allen and Brian Essig-Peppard.
