Tiki Madness

As landlocked Denver swelters under the oppressive, dry heat of summer, my fantasies begin to turn ever more frequently to white-sand beaches cooled by an ocean breeze and frozen drinks served in a coconut shell. I don’t have the means to make that real, but the Voodoo Spells and Tiki Curses art show should provide a decent substitute. This latest installment in the Bad Art for Bad People series features the work of nearly two dozen artists creating lots of tropical-, voodoo- and tiki-themed and artwork. “It’s mostly a theme for the party, but I think a lot of the artists are taking the bait on it and doing the voodoo, tiki theme,” says Bob White, the man behind BABP.

Put on your grass skirt, grab your shrunken skull and head down to the Continental Club, 475 Santa Fe Drive, to join in the fun. The art stays on display and for sale through September 6. For more information, including a full list of artists, bands and performers, visit www.badartforbadpeople.com.
