Calhoun: Wake-Up Call

Art Attack!

Look for art to break out all over the mall during Denver Arts Week, which runs October 5-12 (for details, go to the Night & Day section of the October 4 Westword). But in fact, you can expect art to break out even earlier, since a few underground-art types, concerned that an Arts Week mall-bus display failed to materialize, plan to take their show-and-tell on the road.

And word has it that Mayor John Hickenlooper, who's touted this city's "creative class," will be one of the aesthetic guerrillas’ favorite targets. -- Patricia Calhoun
