Sally Centigrade, 445 South Saulsbury Street, Lakewood
Friday, June 21 5:30 to 9 p.m.
Pop-art palace Sally Centigrade is entering the world of collectible vinyl toys in a new partnership with Kidrobot, and will do so with a bang: by hosting a new release of the fabled toy company’s Arcane Divination Series 2: The Lost Cards, a series of three-inch Dunny blind boxes. If you know what that means, you’ll be there – these figures, borrowed from tarot lore by artists Jon-Paul Kaiser, GODMACHINE, Tokyo Jesus, Camilla D’Errico and J*RYU, are too hot to touch.
Union Hall Denver, the Coloradan, 1750 Wewatta Street, Suite 144

Talk about amenities: Union Hall, a nonprofit cultural experiment housed within the new LoDo condominium development the Coloradan, brings gallery shows to a dedicated space that’s accessible to the public. Take a look at the grand opening, where paintings by Brooklyn artist Deborah Brown are on display. In addition, Brown will give an artist talk at 5 p.m. Friday, June 21, and dogs will be welcome in the gallery from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on June 29, the last day of her exhibition. No surprise: Pups figure into several of her works.
