[The exhibit discussed here is closed. The book is still relevant.] That five-star rating is a bluff, as I've neither read the book nor seen the show. But if you've had your eyes open lately, you probably recognize this sweet dog, the publicity image on all the downtown banners for...

Get Frosted This Friday

Fresh City Life is getting out amongst 'em this Friday at Denver Art Museum's: Untitled: On the Rocks. This fun evening highlights the current Cartier exhibit of jewelry and rare items from the Cartier jewelers' collection. It is a fascinating and sparkling show -- go see it if you haven't yet. 

These Things Happened: Last Friday Night We Partied, Hardly (a generally OK time was had by all)

Ann as ray of sunshine, Trish bringing the emo.

Friday, May 31: nighttime. Fresh City Life was on hand to celebrate Untitled #57 at the Denver Art Museum. We hosted ennui-inspired button making. Were you there?

We had a great time pretending to be 'meh' -- because it was too much fun hanging out with a huge crowd. Excellent live music, a chance to explore the museum at night and spectacular food. If you didn't make it, here are some photos. And join us in August!

Say Chic: YSL descends in Denver

One of the great wonders of the fashion world, Yves Saint Laurent, makes his fashion debut in Denver this month. Actually, YSL won't be here, but his clothes will be.

The retrospective of iconic designer, Yves Saint Laurent, who's clothes became synonymous (along with Halston) with the Studio 54 culture of the 1970s, opens at the Denver Art Museum this Sunday, March 25, 2012.

After 40 years as one of the great impresarios of the fashion world, Yves Saint Laurent retired in 2002 and passed away in June of 2008. His home has become a museum and his fashion oeuvre has become the hottest international art exhibition -- and Denver hosts the retrospective for several months this spring.

Xu Beihong Exhibit at the Denver Art Museum

Xu Beihong Exhibit

I've just walked through the Xu Beihong Exhibit at the Denver Art Museum and was blown away.  The exhibit includes ink and watercolor (my favorites), charcoal drawings, pastels, and oil paintings.  I loved the way the ink and watercolor works are mounted on very large scrolls surrounded by what looks like exquisite silk fabric in colors and textures that complement the artwork.  The pieces are absolutely stunning!

The exhibit emphasizes Xu Beihong's importance and influence in establishing a modern style in Chinese art while maintaining Chinese art's traditional roots.  The short informational film played at the start of the exhibit says that he was one of the very first Chinese artists to travel to Europe and train with Western artists, and he brought some of those techniques back to China, sharing what he learned with other artists.
