Paint the Town Brown

That Denver's Chicano Humanities and Arts Council is celebrating thirty years on the local arts scene is no surprise. Few grassroots non-profit arts organizations have as much wherewithal when it comes to sticking to the plan. Now as entrenched as an ancient tire rut burned into a road paved with San Luis Valley mud, CHAC will fete members old and new with two shows — Imagination Celebration and La Familia 30th Anniversary Members Show — both of which open tonight and continue through April 26. Featured will be founding member Al Sanchez's I Am CHAC painting and print, modeled after the Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band album cover. Additionally, CHAC will auction off a pair of special gifts to the gallery from Beatle wife Yoko Ono: a limited edition iPod Touch engraved with the words "Imagine Peace, Love Yoko" and a signed postcard image of Ono and John Lennon taken during their 1969 Bed-In in Montreal.

Place your bids and party with CHAC during a reception from 6 to 10 p.m.; for information, go to or call 303-571-0440. CHAC is at 772 Santa Fe Drive.
Fri., April 4, 6-10 p.m., 2008
