Talk about the kindness of strangers. Youve got to hand it to the folks in the Riverfront Park neighborhood who went to Judy Anderson at PlatteForum the Central Platte Valley non-profit gallery that pairs at-risk youth and working artists with an offer she couldnt refuse, not no way. They offered to donate a juicy load of furniture, light fixtures, books, vintage magazines, toys and much, much, more to benefit the kids in the organizations ongoing ArtLab student internship program.
Someone could absolutely furnish a high-end apartment with stuff from this sale, Anderson says while warning that there will be no room for too-early lookie-loos at todays Chi-Chi Va Garage Sale, a no garage garage sale in Riverfront Park, adjacent to the gallery at Bassett Circle and Little Raven Street. Arrive at 9 a.m., no sooner, to peruse the goods, which are prodigious and tony. ArtLab kids, who are spending the summer working on a theatrical endeavor with local director Jose Mercado at the University of Colorado Denver, will be on hand to meet and greet until the sale ends at 3 p.m., just to let you know how much they appreciate your support.
Platteforum is at 1610 Little Raven Street; for more information, log on to www.platteforum.org or call 303-893-0791.
