It’s Friday night on Memorial Day weekend and you’ve chosen not to flee the city. Fortunately, Denver’s artist co-ops never go on vacation — so why not visit exhibit openings in art districts all over town?

May 26 through June 18
Opening reception: 6 to 9 p.m. Friday, May 27

Ice Cube’s last hurrah at its current RiNo location is part farewell and part celebration of the gallery’s loyal membership and community. Ice Cube will be popping up again in a new home next year (the announcement is on hold for the moment), but four diverse shows will close the book on the current spot. Don’t miss Sarah Rockett’s corner of the venue, where her gilded installation It Better Be Made of Gold comments on luxury culture and greed — a hot topic right now in our overdeveloped town.
