Say goodbye to October at galleries around town with shows that celebrate film, double as benefits, dress up for Halloween or prep viewers for a blockbuster coming to the Denver art Museum in November. Where will you end up?

Black Light Art Show
Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 1
6 to 10 p.m. Friday, October 30
$5 donation at the door

The Black Light Art Show will take over the hip Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 1 on Santa Fe Drive for a witching hour or four with DayGlo-colored works to benefit the Art of War Project, an art-therapy program for veterans. That calls for a party in the darkness, and that’s what you’ll get, with movies, live music and magic, live body painting and a costume contest. Get your glow on to kick off Halloween weekend.
