Central City Opera will be on hand to award some tickets to the summer production of The Sound of Music, too.

Denver Art Museum, 13th Avenue at Acoma Plaza

If you’ve got a bit of defiance in you, come to our event at the Denver Art Museum and find out whom your rebellious artist guide is. We’ll ask you a few fun questions like ‘Would you be more likely to not make your bed or not vote in the next general election?’ – and your answers will connect you with your rebel artist. Once matched, you will create a mojo pendant using a thumbnail version of art by your rebellion mentor! What you do with your newfound defiant nature is no business of ours. DAMS Untitled is a great Friday night event every month.
