Imagine 2020, Denver's cultural plan, unveiled -- and celebrated today!

More than thirty years ago, 36-year-old dark-horse candidate Federico Pena rode to victory as Denver's mayor waving the slogan "Imagine a Great City." Under Pena, the city released its first arts plan in 1989 -- and now, 25 years later, Denver has released Imagine 2020, Denver's first cultural plan in 25 years.

Mayor Michael Hancock, who interned for the Pena administration, unveiled the plan -- dubbed Imagine 2020 -- Tuesday at the Colorado Convention Center, where he also introduced eight new pieces of public art that have been added to the city's collection. There will be a public presentation of the Imagine 2020 at the McNichols Building in Civic Center Park at 4 p.m., followed by a free public reception at 6 p.m. Keep reading for photos of Tuesday's presentation.
