Pray for good weather. Do the sun dance. Whatever it takes to keep Denver's temperatures soaring tonight.
Artist Jared Anderson is debuting a film series called Moving Images in the new outdoor sculpture garden behind his Assembly art gallery, 766 Santa Fe Drive, after getting approval from the city last week to keep a monumental installation that protects the garden from the trashy alley (see Off Limits, page 15). Screening of seven short films culled from the International Experimental Cinema Exposition begins at 7:30 p.m., with a Q&A session following the last flick.
"Some will be eye candy, some will be silent," Anderson says of the movies. "But overall, it's a lot of visually driven shorts."
And even if the shows suck, admission is only $5. Another $3 buys a bottomless beer cup. You can't even hit the Pavilions for that.
If the weather turns foul, Anderson will move the party inside -- but he's hoping to make the series a bi-weekly affair come spring and summer. "I hope that this is the first of many movie nights in the ghetto garden," he says.
