What is Untitled: Artist Takeover?
Untitled: Artist Takeover is an after-hours quarterly event with local artists and creatives full of dynamic and one-of-a-kind experiences. Live performances can include music, dance, spoken-word, theatrical, fashion shows, and much more. Pop-up installations are displayed throughout the museum, allowing you to view unique artworks from our creative partners. Collaborative artmaking stations—guided by professional artists—encourage you to engage your own creativity. And each event features several interactive moments, inviting you to become a part of the evening's festivities yourself.
Entry is included with general admission. Tickets can be purchased online in advance or at the door. The Ponti restaurant and Café Gio are both open for visitors to dine during the special late-night hours, and a cash bar serving wine and alcholol is also available. Reservations for The Ponti can be made in advance at thepontidenver.com.
