The 7th Annual Park Hill Arts Festival August 22nd & 23rd, 2020 in the heart of Denver’s historic Park Hill neighborhood!
Live Socially Distant Event!
Denver, CO * Park Hill Neighborhood * Park Hill Masonic Lodge grounds, 4819 Montview Blvd, Denver, CO 80207
This is a 7th year outdoor juried fine art/fine craft show that will once again be presented on the grounds of the Park Hill Masonic lodge. The grounds are located on Montview Blvd between Dahlia and Eudora street. We will be accepting a maximum of 80 artists. The dates for the show have been chosen carefully as the beginning of June is one of the city’s most beautiful months with average temperatures in the low 70’s.
Your fortnightly dose of Curious Minds from Oxford University
Take a virtual tour of the world’s archaeological and anthropological treasures; explore hundreds of real-life stories behind Britain’s castles, stately homes, and gardens; and (working on the assumption that ‘science is culture’) delve into an array of topics, including Neolithic baby bottles, the effect of noise on wildlife and artificial virtual-reality skin. These are just a few of the new resources to explore for free on our updated Curious Minds page.
Today’s ‘Tutor Takeover’ is from creative writing tutor Frank Egerton, who recommends an online platform filled with advice on writing and publishing.
Your free entry to museums and archives around the world.
Settle back with something good to read, listen to, or watch.
Hands-on activities: learn a language, compose a tune, and more.
