But if you're just seeking art adventures, the rest of the week will be a boon for you. "Everybody is so excited about it," says Arts & Venues Denver spokeswoman Kristin Rust. "We have so many new people involved this year."
Create Denver Week begins tonight at 6 p.m. at Battery 621, 621 Kalamath Street, with "Ode to Denver," a kinetic installation by local filmmakers, a melange of live music ranging from Men in Burka to the Montbello High School drumline and other experiential side trips. And that's just the beginning. Tomorrow night's Urban Encounters follows a yellow brick road of events through downtown Denver, beginning at 6 p.m.: Stops include the Beta SideShop at 1600 Glenarm Street, where you can window-shop for locally designed goods using QR codes and your smartphone; interactive environments, interactive gaming followed by SightLine video works on display on the giant LED screen at 14th and Champa streets; and flash karaoke and visuals with Magic Cyclops, Karla Rodriguez and VJ CacheFlowe.
