Photos: Words and history entwine in art at Lighthouse Writers Workshop

Art & Writing, one of Eric Matelski's favorite shows to curate, currenty fills the rooms of the historic Milheim House, a stately Denver Square from the turn of the last century, complete with a wraparound porch, that's now home to Lighthouse Writers Workshop. Conceived as a side trip of the annual Lit Fest last month, it's a cheeky collection by local artists curated to suit each of the mansion's rooms.

To cap its run, Matelski will lead a free tour through those rooms at 11 a.m. Sunday, July 6, sprinkling in a little of the home's historic lore while introducing the work of some of his favorite artists. Here's a preview of the art you'll see.

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.
