Human Walking Program with Denver Animal Shelter

Social Events
10:00 am - 2:00 pm
North Lawn at 14th and Broadway

Can you imagine what it is like to be chained to a desk with nothing but a mouse for entertainment? What must it be like to be kept in a tiny box and ignored for eight hours a day? For many downtown office workers this is their day-to-day life. The Denver Public Library and Denver Animal Shelter are teaming up to help these needy office workers break the shackles of sedentary, corporate life. Come and see big-hearted, friendly adoption dogs rescue loving people and take them for a walk. They’ll even take you out for a spin – that’s how much these dogs care about you!

Saturday Sessions - Alternate Tunings: Tom Carleno on Guitar

Music Dance and Performance
2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Schlessman Hall - Level 1

"Blending rock, jazz, folk and pop, Denver based guitarist Tom Carleno creates distinctive compositions using a wide variety of alternate tunings. Using these tunings as a canvas for his songs, he creates musical images for solo guitar that are rejuvenating, inspiring, and introspective. His CD, Perfect Imperfection has received rave reviews, international airplay and won ‘Best Instrumental Acoustic Album' at the 2013 Zone Music Reporter Awards. Tom’s music has been heard on TV shows on TLC, Animal Planet and the Discovery Channel.”
