Today's Featured Event: Fashion throwdown and more at DAM's Untitled #23 (Old School)
|Kick it old school with Team Firefox, Westword's own Jason Heller, the Postman and DJ Wigdan Giddy.|
On the last Friday of every month during the summertime, the Denver Art Museum hosts a huge party featuring its normal exhibits, plus surprises in fashion, music, crafts, food and drink just about everywhere you turn. Tonight's bash will be no exception; Untitled #23 (Old School), which takes place from 6 to 10 p.m.
The Fabric Lab has armed local designers with one model, one assistant and one rack of items, giving them minutes to create a high-fashion look in a competition aptly named Style Wars. Gigbot is bringing its photo booth along to take classic school pictures with a twist -- bring your flannel, high-tops and tracksuits; they're providing the lights, props and "nifty accessories." Meanwhile, painting and sculpture curator at the DAM, Angela Daneo, will take guests through the different schools of art history.
Music will be provided by DJs Jason Heller (of Westword fame), the Postman and Wigdan Giddy while Team Firefox throws down some dance. Meanwhile, Buntport Theater is presenting a new segment of everyone's favorite weird Untitled characters, Joan and Charlie.
The Untitled theme for August is Crossbones, and the theme for September is Herd. Admission to Untitled is included in the price of admission; call 720-865-5000 or visit www.denverartmuseum.org.
