"I used to live about two blocks away from Lakeside, and I drove by it every day and always wondered what it was like inside," Russell says. "So I went over there, and I discovered I just couldn't spend enough time there. It's graphically interesting; it's architecturally interesting; it's great people-watching. It's like stepping back in time."
Colfax Day and Night, Russell's homage to Denver's other great dilapidated dream, will also be featured, as will other one-of-a-kind and limited-edition art books by Alicia Bailey and Alicia McKim.
The display -- which captures a reality the new Elitch's can't buy -- will continue through May 1. For more information, call 303-722-3630. -- Amy Haimerl
