The streamlined and space-age mid-century ethos still strikes a chord for everyone, from the boomers who lived it to today’s hipsters, who are drawn to its clean modernity and distinctive design sense. The 2017 Denver Modernism Show: Space Age will keep that all-ages devotion alive, as it has for more than ten years. All of the annual expo’s signature attractions will be back, including the spot-on Tiki Lounge (this year with special guest DJ Fred Schneider of the B-52s on Friday), the popular vintage mobile-home display, the Miss Modernism Pageant, and a Motorama Car Show on Sunday. Throw in a full two and a half days of modernist tchotchke and furniture shopping, a juried art show, live music and an array of lectures and slideshows, and your mid-century longings will be more than sated for another year. Doors open for the preview party from 6 to 10 p.m. Friday, August 25, and the show proper follows from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday at the National Western Expo Hall, 4655 Humboldt Street. Admission is $20 ($50 VIP) on opening night (includes re-entry throughout the weekend) and $10 on Saturday and Sunday (kids under twelve admitted free).
