This month, we encourage you to step out of your usual routine. Try something new. If you usually only get out of the house to go out to dinner or see a movie, why not try one of these events instead. It just might provide you with the opportunity to explore a new neighborhood and a new interest. If your new interest is art, you’ll be happy to know that according to the author of this Huffington Post article, a love of art can help your brain age better.
Become an Art Critic
It doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks. What do you think of that piece?
Check out Third Friday on Santa Fe. Stop by the Artwork Network and view theENTICE exhibit. It features not one, but three Colorado artists. The gallery says that while their work might appear to be unrelated at first glance, the combination of nature, soft forms and geometry of the photographs and paintings are “connected by an intangible allure.” If you enjoy that, you might also want to head over to Mike Wright Gallery and check out artist Valerio D’Ospina’s oil paintings. Both exhibits are free.
You know the saying, “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure.” The Beautiful Junk Sale will take place April 1st and 2nd at the Jefferson County Fairgrounds. It’s a great place to check out if you’re into jewelry, collectibles, vintage, household items, sporting goods, holiday décor and more. General admission is $4 for anyone 16 and older, but bring in a two or more non-perishable food donations and receive $1 off.
Explore the Architecture behind a Dance
The Colorado Ballet and Clyfford Still Museum are partnering for an evening that explores the construction of dance. Dancers from the Colorado Ballet will discuss with the audience how dance is created.
