The Spirit Survives

Curated the Untitled: Creative Fusions event at the Denver Art Museum.

“Part art show and part concert, join us for this exciting event! Experience a fresh mix of contemporary art from Alejandra Abad and music from Felix Ayodele. Come out and celebrate a night of resiliency and empathy as well as connect with amazing local artists and creatives. This evening will be a reminder that even through the rise and fall of civilizations, life remains, traditions carry on, and the spirit survives—inspired by the exhibition, ReVisión: Art of the Americas.”

Untitled: Creative Fusions is a quarterly collaboration with local artists and creatives to create an evening full of events, performances, experimentation, and one-of-a-kind experiences. Throughout the night, artists showcase their work while providing a hands-on and engaging atmosphere.
