Over the Weekend: Art in the Garden

Last year, the annual Art in the Garden, a collaboration between artist/curator Eric Matelski and Denver Urban Gardens, was rained out. But last Saturday, it was a different story: The weather was gorgeous and sunny, the snacks ample, the live music by Erik Rudolph spirited and I'll be damned if a garden -- in this case, the West Washington Park Community Garden at Second Avenue and Grant Street -- didn't turn out to be just about the nicest gallery space I've ever seen. See some of the sights at Art in the Garden after the jump.
KEEP WESTWORD FREE... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Susan Froyd started writing for Westword as the "Thrills" editor in 1992 and never quite left the fold. These days she still freelances for the paper in addition to walking her dogs, enjoying cheap ethnic food and reading voraciously. Sometimes she writes poetry.
