Art & Museum Exhibits
Thru Jan 13 | 10:00 am - 6 pm | Wings Over The Rockies Air & Space Museum | Gen. Adm.
One of the most interactive and inspiring exhibitions exploring flight is coming to Denver!
ABOVE AND BEYOND celebrates the power of innovation to make dreams take flight. This traveling aerospace exhibition features: immersive simulations, interactive design challenges, iconic historical touchstones, visionary concepts for the future, and inspiring stories from game-changing innovators, past and present.
Design—and test-fly—your own supersonic jet. Pilot a drone into the eye of a hurricane to measure nature's fury. Spread your wings and experience flight as a bird or a futuristic wing-flapping aircraft. Or take an elevator ride to the edge of space.

Thru Jan 13 | 10:00 am - 6 pm | Clyfford Still Museum | Gen. Adm.
Curated by the younger of Clyfford Still’s two daughters, Sandra Still Campbell, A Daughter’s Eye/A Daughter’s Voice presents a highly personal and original vision of Still’s art and ideas. Two-thirds of the featured works have never been exhibited, and many have been unrolled and stretched for the first time since Still painted them. Campbell’s reflections about her father, his art, and their life together accompany the paintings, and are presented both in wall texts and a podcast. Her audio commentary unfolds in four chapters, one for each of the exhibition’s galleries.
Born in 1942, Campbell became increasingly active in Still’s career beginning in the early 1960s, when the Still family began their inventory process and documentation of Still’s life’s work. Campbell lived in the Still household on and off between 1962 and 1971. Such deep immersion in Still’s ideas and practices allows Campbell to make uncanny connections between seemingly unrelated works, such as a 1949 canvas created in San Francisco, PH-385, and a 1973 painting created in Maryland, PH-1034.

Thru Jan 20 | 9 am - 5 pm| Denver Museum of Nature & Science | Gen. Adm.

This film is the perfect complement to the temporary exhibition, ¡CUBA!

Thru Feb 3 | 10:00 am - 6 pm | Denver Art Museum | Gen. Adm.
Eyes On: Julie Buffalohead will showcase new work by the Minnesota-based artist, who is a citizen of the Ponca Tribe of Oklahoma. Buffalohead uses metaphors, iconography, and storytelling narratives in her artwork to describe emotional and subversive American Indian cultural experiences, and often analyzes the commercialization of American Indian cultures.
Buffalohead frequently includes animals as subjects, and her eclectic palette and whimsical subjects evoke a childlike innocence. While she works in a variety of mediums, including painting, printmaking, drawing, illustration, bookmaking, and sculpture, this exhibition will feature a new series of works on canvas that explore her own life experiences, as well as ancestral knowledge.

Thru May 19 | 10:00 am - 6 pm | Denver Art Museum | Gen. Adm.
See how animals have captivated artists throughout history in Stampede: Animals in Art. This cross-departmental exhibition brings together more than 300 objects from the Denver Art Museum’s collection to explore the presence of animals in art throughout centuries and across cultures.
Stampede creates an opportunity for visitors to discover and consider the role animals play through themes such as personal connections with animals, how animal materials have been used in art, how animals are used to tell stories or represent political ideas, and how artists use animals in imaginative ways. It includes visitor favorites such as a four-faced Hamat's Mask, Deborah Butterfield’s horse sculptures, artworks by Frederic Remington and Georgia O’Keeffe, as well as rarely seen works.

Thru Dec 9 | 10:00 am - 6 pm | Denver Museum of Nature & Science | Gen. Adm.

Miguel Espinoza: Flamenco guitar Lynn Baker: Jazz Saxophone Randy Hoepker: Fretless Bass Guitar Andy Skellenger: Indian Tablas Dianne Betkowski: Cello Flamenco World Fusion, including Indian Tablas, Cello, Jazz Sax, and Fretless Jazz Bass, is a unique musical blend that will leave listeners spellbound and entranced. Flamenco guitarist Miguel Espinoza is bringing together virtuoso musicians of disparate backgrounds for a fun evening of passion, intensity and heart. His music weaves together a variety of influences, his own as well as his colleagues, from Gitano to Indian to Classical to Jazz, and beyond. Miguel Espinoza has had a lifelong love affair with flamenco. A child prodigy who started honing his technique since the age of four—and performed his first recital at age nine on PBS—Espinoza is hailed as one of the best flamenco guitarists in the world. Described by Guitar Player Magazine as "mesmerizing," Espinoza is much more than a virtuosic technician. Whether his lightning-fast fingers are skittering across the fretboard, fluttering over the sound hole like percussive hummingbird wings or skillfully drawing achingly beautiful melodies out of the strings, Espinoza's award-winning compositions create an exotic, intoxicating musical elixir of flamenco fusion–one that is as sonically exciting as it is emotionally moving.

Nestled in the Catskills—1962’s land of dirty dancing and Borscht Belt comedy—an inconspicuous bungalow colony catered to a very special clientele: heterosexual men who delighted in dressing and acting as women. These white-collar professionals would discreetly escape their families to spend the weekends safely inhabiting their chosen female alter-egos. But given the opportunity to share their secret lives with the world, the members of this sorority had to decide whether the freedom gained by openness was worth the risk of personal ruin. Based on real events and infused with Fierstein’s (La Cage aux Folles, Newsies and Kinky Boots) trademark wit, this moving, insightful, and delightfully entertaining work offers a glimpse into the lives of a group of “self-made women” as they search for acceptance and happiness in their very own Garden of Eden.

Which one of them will get to own the truth? In this “whip-smart satire of fear and loathing” (New York Times)—a 2016 Pulitzer Prize finalist—MacArthur “Genius” Branden Jacobs-Jenkins skewers the cutthroat, opportunistic culture of modern media.

A sharp look into the nature of romantic relationships, Harold Pinter’s “Betrayal” starts in 1977 when long time lovers Jerry and Emma meet after her marriage to her husband Robert dissolves, and then backtracks all the way to 1968 when their affair first began.
As the years spin backwards, a complex web of secrets about the trio emerges and calls into question the nature of their intimacy -- as friends, as partners, as spouses.

Born and raised in Turin, Italy, to music-loving parents (who had actually first met at a jazz concert), Roberta Gambarini grew up listening to her father’s record collection constantly. Her first vocal inspiration was Louis Armstrong, but she soon discovered Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Carmen McRae, and Billie Holiday, as well as blues artists like Mahalia Jackson and Bessie Smith. At age 12 she began playing the clarinet, but realizing the versatility and talents of her clear alto, she moved to voice, singing and performing in clubs by the time she was 17. The next year she decided to move to Milan to pursue her career more seriously, and a third-place finish at a national jazz radio competition brought her enough exposure to jump-start her career, sending her around Europe performing at festivals and with other artists, including Hammond organist Emmanuel Bex in 1997.
