The main attraction is an incandescent show of light installations by Collin Parson, Ghost Pixel and Blazen Illuminations, but there will be plenty of distractions, too, from music by DJs Almighty I.Z. and Ginger Perry to a spread of gourmet flavors and libations from a trendy array of local restaurants and wine bars. “No one is going to want to miss this party,” says Eichenbaum Lent. “There’s only one chance to be at the first party in the reopened building, and this is it. And it’s going to be an incredible fusion of history and the future and art and culture and food — everything that Denver is about, all rolled up into one incredible event.”
Step into the LIGHT from 6 to 10 p.m. at the McNichols Building, 144 West Colfax Avenue in Civic Center Park; for information and tickets, $50 to $75, visit www.civiccenterconservancy.org.Collin Parson’s installation will also be on view during Denver Arts Week in November, and continues through January.
