Border: Both Sides Now
Art Students League of Denver, 200 Grant Street
September 15 through October 13
Opening Reception: 5:30 to 8 p.m. Saturday, September 16
The Art Students League of Denver adds a layer to Biennial ideals with Border: Both Sides Now, a group exhibit blending work by Latin American and Chicano artists commenting on immigration from both sides of the border. Curated by Artnauts founder Dr. Geroge Rivera, whose thing it is to seek out global ideas in art, it’s an exhibit that couldn’t be more current.

Access Gallery, 909 Santa Fe Drive

Admission: $9.99
Access Gallery’s annual 99 Pieces of Art on the Wall fundraiser is a collector’s dream and a great play on the meaning of “access” — for the price of the $10 admission, every partier in the room can walk away with a small square foot of art priced between $50 and $250, first come, first served. More than 100 artists, from well-known names to young participants served by the nonprofit, have contributed artwork.
