Creative Fusions at the Denver Art Museum
As museums and other cultural institutions continue to pivot, the Denver Art Museum is exploring new ways to bring storytelling to you. The latest is a program called Untitled: Creative Fusions and it’s a quarterly event designed to bring performances and one-of-a-kind experiences as a collaboration of local creatives and artists. Two different artists will be showcased for each event, which will be livestreamed, free of charge, until further notice. Coming up, you can catch fiber artist Katy Batsel and interactive digital artist Chris Bagely on April 30. Or stay tuned for R. Alan Brooks, a spoken word and comic book artist who will be joined by We Were Wild visual artists on July 30.

Art @ One Boulder Plaza by Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art
What is your message of hope? That is the question artists Alejandra Abad and Román Anaya are asking the Boulder community. The collaborative duo created a public art installation to highlight the community’s response to that question. The installation is part of the Art @ One Boulder Plaza on 13th Street between Canyon Boulevard and Walnut Street in Downtown Boulder and will be on display through the end of February.
As a free, outdoor art installation, it’s also a great way to see and support local arts in a safer, outdoor environment. You can get more information at bmoca.org.

Ricardo Morales via the Boulder Philharmonic
Ricardo Morales is the principal clarinetist of the Philadelphia Orchestra, Saito Kinen Orchestra, and Mito Chamber Orchestra. Critics have lauded the nearly operatic lyrical qualities of his peerless tone, which has made him a household name among fans of today’s classicists. On Wednesday, Feb. 24 at 5 p.m., Morales will perform a short recital and engage in an interactive, moderated discussion with attendees in this special virtual performance, live-streamed via Zoom.
Tickets are $30, and residents of Boulder, Lafayette and Louisville can enjoy a special rate on delivered hors d’ oeuvres from Three Leaf Concepts. Head to boulderphil.org for more information.
Jim Breuer at Comedy Works South
Jim Breuer might be a road dog these days, but you likely best know him for his breakout success on Saturday Night Live where, from 1995–1998 his Joe Pesci impression and famous “Goat Boy” character became hugely popular regular rotations. The family man has been married since 1993 to his wife Dee and has 3 daughters and boasts that his act has been “F-word free” for more than a decade. Working clean hasn’t hindered him at all as he regularly performs for sold-out crowds and is back on the road after COVID-19 pushed pause on his steady touring.
Catch him on his Freedom of Laughter Tour at Comedy Works South, 5345 Landmark Place Greenwood Village on March 29 where he performs two shows at 7 p.m. and 9:15 p.m. Tickets start at $35, www.comedyworks.com for more information.
