PROGRAM OF EVENTS
“Being creative is not so much the desire to do something as the listening to that which
wants to be done: the dictation of the materials.” – Bauhaus artist Anni Albers
For our Untitled Creative Takeover this month, fiber and new media artist Steven Frost has woven together an interactive evening of textile, sound, and electronic arts featuring local artists who embrace material and action in their practices.
Music by The Nightshift
Level 2 Atrium, Precourt
What happens when vinyl meets electricity? A FLIPPIN’ DANCE PARTY that’s what! Laura Conway and Meghan Meehan of The Nightshift get the night started off right by spinning 45’s in the museum’s most magical space.
Don’t worry, the music doesn’t stop at 8, we’ll have a great playlist by artist Steven Frost kicking out the jams from 8-10.
Food Truck located on 12th and Acoma by the big bronze cows
Eat up; it’s going to be a big night. Lucky for you, Teal Taco is here, so get your grub on! Grab a taco and bring it back in or take in the night air and head back for more fun.
*Pro tip! You can order your food at the table by the stairs & have it delivered to the atrium!
Or until materials run out.
Putting It All Together
Level 1 Atrium
Steven Frost has gathered friends from around the Front Range to help him create woven compositions which represent the spirit of collaboration. These woven works of art will be created using laser cut backstrap looms, t-shirts rejected from Goodwill, and a Toyota RAV4. Ask weavers for a turn operating the looms. All patrons who help will be listed as collaborators in future exhibitions of these pieces.
*Bonus! Find more weavers weaving throughout the museum all evening to learn more!
Or until materials run out..
Style, Shred and Shuttle
Level 1 Atrium and 3-D Studio
Get hands-on and become part of the production! Watch as T-shirts are shredded into yarn and wind weaving shuttles with recycled t-shirt yarn that will be part of the art being created all over the museum.
Drawn to Glamour, Level 2 galleries
Dig the materials of Jim Howard’s Drawn to Glamour as you put your most stylish face forward and let Emily Platzer’s Gifotron animate your night by helping you create your own animated gifs.
