"It's like a juggernaut or behemoth of culture, a giant machine, big-face, user-friendly, bad-kid kind of thing," Amundson says of the work with a "Big Daddy Roth look" that offers his industriously detailed and wildly subjective view of the Denver Performing Arts Complex, replete with galleria, Boteros and even a borrowed big blue bear from the neighboring Colorado Convention Center. "It's no pretentious fine-art thing," he adds. "Something I'd do as a sixth- or seventh-grader."
Meet Amundson and learn more about his style over food and drink beginning at 5 p.m.; admission is free. Get information at www.denvertheatredistrict.com.
