I've been rooting around big piles of press releases looking for what lies between the lines for two years short of twenty here at Westword in my longtime role as calendar editor, and after all that time, I think I can safely say that Denver has plenty of art and culture. You just have to know where to find it.
The proof isn't to be found in my mail box--it's out there, all around us, in the galleries and the studios and the hole-in-the wall theaters, on the street, in the boutiques and bars, on the bike paths and in our neighborhoods, all of it fiercely unready to be totally encapsulated by two paragraphs in a newspaper calendar. For that reason, I'm extremely pleased to be introducing you to Show and Tell, Westword's new arts and culture blog, where we'll be covering everything daily -- the highbrow, the lowbrow, events, people, style, gossip, trends, pop culture and anything that has to do with local arts and culture -- with pictures (lots of pictures), profiles, event previews and followups, contests, lists and more. It's my hope that we can take something we've already been doing for years and make it better and more immediate and imminently more user-friendly.
