Last Weekend: The Denver Modernism Show revisited, part one.

Trust me, you don't have to be a boomer to love the Denver Modernism Show, but you do have to have a certain sense of style. During my sojourn there last Friday and Saturday, I saw people of all ages, from WWII-era grannies to babes in backpacks. But I also saw art! And lamps! And Airstream trailers! Here's a nostalgic look back on what we all saw (or missed, as the case may be, you poor thing). Continue after the jump.

Some booths offered stunning mid-century tableaux.

The lamps. The lamps!

Kitsch up the yin-yang!

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
