Drop-in All Night:

Storytelling Studio, 69:30 pm
Discover how artists combine visual imagery and the power of words in two interactive self-guided activities. The Denver Art Museum’s interactive Storytelling Studio is a place to spark your creativity, connect with Denver’s creative community, and get a new perspective on the artistic process. Hamilton Building, Level 1

Lustration, 610 pm
An audio-visual exploration of identifying and releasing bands of pain and memory through somatic performance, by Bianca Mikahn. Created at the La Napoule artist residency, Lustration identifies themes of loss, rage, reckoning, and release, creating space for healing and moving on from that which seems to bind and limit our experience of our internal identities. Hamilton Building, Level 2 Atrium

Thiówa (Painted Tipi), 610 pm
Artist Danielle SeeWalker will have her personal tipi onsite and presented with an exterior mural. Visitors are invited to participate in a collaborative decoration on the inside of the tipi. Historically, tipis were used as a way of being nomadic and not being confined to one geographic area. The idea of 'borders' is a foreign concept to Indigenous people. However, today, borders seem to be all around us. Martin Building, Level 1, Creative Hub
