The Recession Special edition
Our very own Kim Olson, one of our earliest and most frequent collaborating artists, will be performing her work thin WATER blue ICE tonight to open the Denver 2009 Mayor’s Awards for Excellence in the Arts. The performance starts at 6:15 in the lobby of the The Ellie Caulkins Opera House at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts and leads into the theatre to start the awards ceremony.
If you’re in Denver tonight, definitely check it out, plus it’s FREE!!
