The Denver Art Museum is the sole venue for Rembrandt: Painter as Printmaker, showcasing about 100 prints from Rembrandt van Rijn’s career spanning from 1625 to 1665.
Unforgettable images of biblical, portrait, allegory, still life, landscape, and genre artworks of the time demonstrate the mastery that cemented Rembrandt as one of the greatest artists in history. The exhibition shows how Rembrandt used his view of the world around him to fuel his artistic journey, and gives a deeper understanding of his working habits as an artist, and moreover, as a printmaker.
Rembrandt: Painter as Printmaker takes a close look at Rembrandt’s innovative approach to printmaking that combined the three principle methods of intaglio, including etching, drypoint and engraving. New scholarship about the artist is presented, revealing how Rembrandt intentionally varied the states of his prints, ink, and exotic papers to create rarities that he knew his clients desired, demonstrating how he deliberately manipulated his prints for marketing and storytelling purposes.

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.

It includes visitor favorites such as a four-faced Hamat'sa Mask, Deborah Butterfield’s horse sculptures, artworks by Frederic Remington and Georgia O’Keeffe, as well as rarely seen works.

Going from hanging in the hood to performing comedy on Jay Leno’s “Tonight Show,” not to mention the privilege of afterward being invited to take a seat on the “couch” which not many comics are asked to do, has been a long and fulfilling journey.

He has taken top honors at the Miller Genuine Draft Comedy Search, Budweiser Comedy Competition, Chicago Home Jam, and Laffapalooza.

Corey’s comedy genius transcends class and racial divides. If you understand English, Corey’s humor will tickle your funny bone. People all over the world can relate to the drama of trying to make a relationship work. According to Corey, a “hunter” (man) being captured by his “prey” (woman) makes for the best comedy ever.

Boozy Take on the Bard's Greatest Romance 
Fans of Drunk History and all its slurred education will fall over laughing at Sh*t-Faced Shakespeare, where an entirely serious Shakespeare play is performed with one entirely inebriated cast member. For the last eight years, Sh*t-Faced Shakespeare has been performed in the darkest corners and diviest bars in the U.K., and the cast is now bringing the good time to Austin. Side-splitting, raucous and completely interactive, this show enjoyed sell-out runs at the Edinburgh and Brighton Fringe festivals, where a cast member drinks beer, wine and whiskey on stage, drunkenly sings the Dawson's Creek theme song and occasionally (accidentally, of course) bares a nipple or two. Brush up on your Bard knowledge and head over to Spider House for a drunken twist on Romeo and Juliet, because this is Shakespeare as you never knew you wanted to see him before.

This adult "Sesame Street" musical is for mature audiences and those (not easily offended) with a sense of humor. Leave your kids at home and come celebrate Avenue Qs 15th birthday - a show that is is part flesh, part felt and packed with heart! PG Rated, recommended age 15+

BIPOLARITY is loosely based on a true story.The impetus for the story was the ten innovative songs, co-written during a three month hypomanic phase. The play became the vehicle for popularizing the songs. Each song represents a varying symptom of bipolar disorder, such as grandiosity, hyper sexuality, magical thinking, paranoia, addiction, cosmic universalities, and a deep alliance with underdogs. 
BIPOLARITY tells the story of JEROME, a quiet persona from a dysfunctional family with a childhood history of mixed episodic bipolar disorder and MICHAEL, a college bound athlete in the throes of his first psychotic break. After meeting fleetingly in a plaza, where Jerome falls unconscious from an overdose of pills and Michael, in his first bipolar episode, is roaming around the streets rapping, they team up and become College Rap phenoms. Their writing and performing songs together becomes the glue that binds them to each other, no matter what the highs and lows of their diseases bring. Until, one day, it isn't.

The atom bomb's creation during WWII was an unprecedented collaboration of minds. America's brightest academics, brilliant refugee scientists fleeing the terrors of Europe, government and military leaders, an army of construction and factory workers with no idea what they were working on. A tossed salad of humanity, united and driven by urgent necessity. Battling the clock, bureaucracy and each other to beat Hitler to the weapon that would decide the war. Only once Germany had surrendered did focus shift to Japanese cities. By then the project had grown too big to stop. But one man did try to stop it. A man since buried by history. But without his intellect and determination, the weapon that could end us might never have had its start. His name is Leo Szilard. His is the story of the bomb we were never told.

GUIDED PRIVATE TOURS 

ASPIRE TOURS' DENVER RINO CRAFT BREWERY TOUR
In no other neighborhood is the Denver craft beer culture more visible than in the    River North Art District (RiNo) . Located just north of downtown, RiNo has transformed from an industrial landscape into one of the hippest spots in Denver, featuring art galleries, innovative businesses and a variety of craft breweries.    Aspire Tours    highlights a few of the microbreweries that stand out for innovation, quality and their unique perspective on craft beer, including   Epic Brewing Company    and    Black Shirt Brewing Co  .

Rock Bottom Brewery
Today, Rock Bottom Brewery is a major chain with more than 30 breweries that produce 700 different craft beers that have won over 125 medals. But their brewery in Denver is the "mother ship," the first brewery of the chain when it opened in 1990. Rock Bottom has one of the best locations on the 16th Street Mall, Denver's mile-long pedestrian promenade. There are 41 outdoor patios along the Mall, but the one at Rock Bottom is the largest and one of the most popular. On summer weekends, bands play and hundreds of people gather to sip craft beer on the patio under twinkling lights, as horse-drawn carriages clatter by. The interior of the massive bar is built around towering glass windows displaying the brewing equipment. It can be noisy, crowded and fun, as the bar brings in an attractive crowd of young downtown office workers. For a quieter experience, head to the back bar, which has pool tables and a staff that's both knowledgeable and passionate about craft beer. Rock Bottom features the standard IPAs, Red Ale, White Ale, Dark Ale and a Winter Tartan Ale, as well as the always popular Molly's Titanic Brown Ale. The brewmaster at each pub creates specials, so check what's on the current beer list, and especially look for the hand-pulled cask-conditioned ales in the back room.

ETUK Drink RINO Craft Brewery Crawl
RiNo is known for its many art studios and galleries, but the neighborhood is also at the heart of Denver's craft beer scene. Hop in one of   Th eTuk Ride's     Denver-built, zero-emission vehicles for an eco-friendly ride to one of the many independent craft adult beverage producers dedicated to promoting and celebrating the independent and wild spirit of RiNo known as  Drink RiNo .

Denver Beer Company
Denver Beer Company     is one of the city's favorite tap rooms — a place that really captures the laid-back feeling of The Mile High City. Located in a former auto garage, on warm days the "walls" of the pub literally roll up, making the whole building open air. There's an outdoor patio with picnic tables next to a space where different food trucks park every day. 

Ale House at Amato's
After crossing the bridge, you've entered LoHi, one of Denver's hippest and fastest-growing neighborhoods.    Ale House at Amato's    is a great introduction to this section of town. Although no beer is brewed here, the restaurant is owned jointly by Wynkoop and Breckenridge breweries and features 40-plus craft beers on tap, including several rare and hard-to-find Colorado microbrews. The staff is beer savvy and will work with you to find the perfect selection, whether it's light, hoppy, malty or complex (and your beer, of course, will be poured into the appropriate style of glass). The entire roof of the bar is an open-air beer garden with outdoor fireplaces and sweeping views of Downtown Denver. It's especially pretty at twilight when the sun sets over the visible Rocky Mountains to the west.  

Prost Brewing
As you would suspect, with a name like  Prost , this brewery specializes in traditional German beers, and they do everything traditionally, from serving the beer in appropriate German beer glasses to making it in authentic 72.5-barrel copper kettles from Germany. The kettles were made in 1963 and used until a few years ago by a 350-year-old brewery in Germany. When that brewery went out of business, the kettles were purchased and lovingly shipped to Denver, where they continue to make Weißbier (a Bavarian Hefeweizen), Altfränkisches Dunkel Bier (a dark amber lager) and Marzen (an Oktoberfest brew). The flagship beer is Prost Pils, a crisp, pale and well-hopped, gold-colored brew capped with a dense white collar of foam. It's served in a tapered glass with a gold rim that will have you crying, "Prost!" The Prost beer hall is decorated with authentic antique German beer signs and blue-and-white-check Oktoberfest bunting and is filled with long communal tables. Have a liter of beer, bite into an authentic German pretzel and meet new friends in this LoHi neighborhood tap room.

Mile High Tap Tours
Sit back as a 12-passenger van drives you and your friends along South Broadway and Santa Fe Drive on a four-hour tour to three breweries. Mile High Tap Tours currently partners with     Breckenridge Brewery , The Brew on Broadway, Saint Patrick's Brewing Company, Dead Hippie Brewing, Locavore Beer Works and 38 State Brewing Company.

Avanti F & B
If all this walking has worked up an appetite, end your night with dinner (and another beer) at  Avanti F & B , one of Denver's most popular new spots for foodies. Inspired by European markets and food-truck roundups, Avanti bills itself as a modern-day food hall, offering up seven different restaurant concepts under one roof. Grab a mushroom pizza at Brava! Pizzeria, a noodle bowl from MiJo or a chicken meatball torta at Poco Torteria. There are also two large bars — one upstairs and one downstairs — with twenty draft beers on tap, many from local breweries like Prost Brewing, Platt Park Brewing, Crooked Stave and Ratio Beerworks.

Breckenridge Brewery
Take a tour of the bucolic new    Breckenridge Brewery    facility in    Littleton   . You'll walk through the whole brewing process and see from start to finish how Breck Brew gets the beer to your bottle. Everything from the 100-barrel brewhouse, to the fermentation hall, to the bottling line...and all with a complimentary beer in your hand! You'll taste and talk about the company's different beers and how they're made. Tours cost $3 and begin and end in the tasting room. We recommend grabbing a meal at the excellent    Farm House Restaurant    while you're there. 

New Belgium Brewing Company
New Belgium Brewing Company       in Fort Collins       is one of Colorado's first microbrewery success stories. Since its founding in 1991, New Belgium — best known for its iconic Fat Tire Amber Ale — has grown into one of the biggest microbreweries in the world, producing more than 400,000 barrels of beer annually.

Avery Brewing Company
One of Boulder's most beloved brewers,    Avery Brewing Company    is rapidly making headway on the national beer scene. Last year the company moved into a new $27 million "dream brewery" in north Boulder, upping both their brewing capacity and tap room seating.

Boulder Beer Company
Boulder Beer Company, Colorado's first craft brewery, is beloved by beer connoisseurs for its Hazed Hoppy Session Ale and by environmentalists for its eco-friendly ethos. 

Visit the home of Budweiser at the Anheuser-Busch Brewery in Fort Collins and discover how the "King of Beers" crafts its world-famous brews.

Upslope Brewing Company
Boulder's Upslope Brewing taps into Colorado's active lifestyle by offering superior-quality handcrafted ales in cans for the on-the-go beer enthusiast. The brewery has won raves for its IPA and Brown Ale, but we also love their creative limited-release brews, like the Blood Orange Saison and the Thai Style White IPA.
Tour Info: Upslope offers tours at both locations. Flatiron Park Tap Room: Thurs., Sat. and Sun. at 3 p.m., Lee Hill Tap Room: Fri. and Sat. at 4 p.m.

Oskar Blues Brewery
Oskar Blues kicked off the canned craft beer revolution in 2002 with their Dale's Pale Ale. Why cans instead of bottles? For one thing, cans keep beer fresh by protecting it from light and oxygen. Drop into either the brewery's Homemade Liquids and Solids restaurant/brewery/music venue (home of the aforementioned oversized beer can) or the nearby Tasty Weasel brewing facility for a Dale's or an Old Chub Scotch Ale.
Tour Info: The Tasty Weasel offers free tours Mon.–Fri. at 4 p.m. and Sat.–Sun. at 2 p.m., 3 p.m., 4 p.m. and 5 p.m.

Left Hand Brewing CO.
Located on the banks of Longmont St. Vrain River, the patio is perfect for relaxation and beer appreciation. Since its founding in 1993, Left Hand's brews, including its iconic Milk Stout and Sawtooth Ale, have wowed beer connoisseurs, racking up dozens of medals at events like the Great American Beer Festival, the United States Beer Tasting Championships, the Brussels Beer Challenge, the World Beer Cup, the International Stockholm Beer & Whiskey Festival and more.
Budweiser Clydesdales and sample a cold one in the Hospitality Room.

With more than 25 years of brewing experience under its belt, Odell brews everything from handcrafted classics to small-batch beers that please even the snootiest of beer snobs. Be sure to try Odell's 90 Shilling Ale and the Cutthroat Porter, then sample from a rotating line of experimental brews, many of which are available exclusively in the Tap Room.
Tour Info: Daily at 12 p.m., 1 p.m., 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. Tours last about 30 minutes and can be reserved in advance.

Fort Collins Brewery
Just steps from the Cache Le Poudre River, Fort Collins Brewery turns out favorites like Far Away IPA, Major Tom's Pomegranate Wheat and Shot Down Chocolate Stout. This local gem isn't quite as big as Odell and New Belgium — not yet anyway!
Tour Info   :    Every Sat. at 12 p.m., 1 p.m., 2 p.m., 3 p.m. and 4 p.m. and Mon.–Fri. by appointment (970-682-2260)
