Artist Statement: ” I enjoy ‘capturing beauty’ around sunrise and sunset and my process to create an image, is to develop a ‘story’ that engages the viewer and moves the eye into and around the photo. My photos are meant to convey an emotion of that captured moment that I want to share with the viewer. My hope is that my viewers will make the same emotional connection to my work that I experienced…

Denver and the surrounding towns have plenty of options for full on fireworks extravaganzas.
From the explosions in the sky themselves to all of the pre-dark festival fun, we’ve laid out everything you need to make this year’s patriotic partying the best yet.
Creekside Park & Four Mile Park
Festival: July 2 at 5pm
Kick off the holiday two days early with the first fireworks show of the summer. People pretty much line the streets for this one so get there early to claim your spot. The Whole Foods parking lot on Colorado is also a popular place to post up. Option B: Grab a $5 ticket ahead of time for the festivities at Four Mile Park, which include live music from That Damn Sasquatch, food trucks, and more.

Denver has a plan to increase the presence and safety of bike lanes, and the project is kicking off this summer.
Denver will build 16.8 miles of new bike lanes this summer, kicking off the construction of 125 miles of bikeways the city will add to its network over the next five years.
This summer’s work includes nine projects, most in lower-income areas outside of the city center.
As the Denver finally accelerates the expansion of its bike network, advocates expressed support.
“This is exactly the direction Denver needs to be moving in.” said Piep van Heuven, policy director of Bicycle Colorado. “We have to really expedite lanes that everybody can feel comfortable biking on, whether you’re eight years old or 80 years old.”

Queer in the Age of Queen
June 6, 7:00-9:00pm

"In an age ruled by repressed sexuality, take a look back at queer culture both here and in the U.S. and abroad during the reign of Queen Victoria. Learn how the Queen spoke about sexuality and how homosexual, transgender, and queer culture grew from this time."

Memorial Day is unique in that it is not about any one person, but a group of people.
Specifically, it is about remembering those who have given their lives in military service to our nation during war.
It is understandable why we may have lost sight of that over time. During the First and Second World Wars, millions of Americans served in uniform. Our connection to the military was personal on many levels. It was our spouse, our sibling, our child, and almost no family was left untouched by loss. As time went on, so did war, but something started to happen. Wars got smaller. They were fought differently, with fewer people. Medical advances meant battlefield wounds of old were now survivable. Thus, fewer Americans were needed to join the…

Get out the Vote, Denver: Elect Your New Mayor, City Council Members, Clerk + Recorder, City Auditor...and Whether to Decriminalize Magic MushroomsPosted by West + Main Homes on
It was only about 6 months ago that you filled out the longest ballot in Denver history, but it really is time to vote again.
This election, held on May 7 (you can vote as soon as you receive your mail ballot in mid-April), is a municipal election.
That means Denver residents will be voting on Denver things. We’ll be picking a mayor, a clerk and recorder, a city auditor and a whole bunch of City Council members. We also have two initiatives to vote on — one that would decriminalize psilocybin mushrooms and one that would repeal the city’s urban camping ban.
If you’ve been following along, you’ve seen a lot of Denverite stories explaining the issues and profiling the candidates. In the interest of saving everyone some site-searching, we’ve condensed…

Major Highway Construction will take more than Five Years, and I-70 will be shut down this weekend. For the entire weekend.
A single sentence on the Colorado Department of Transportation's Central 70 page sums up what's on the agenda: "Eastbound and westbound I-70 between Colorado Boulevard and I-270 will close at 10 p.m. on Friday, April 12 and reopen at 5 a.m. on Monday, April, 15." Efforts over that span will focus on the I-270 flyover that will serve as a link to eastbound I-70.
Rebecca White, Central 70's communications director, said, "One of the major restrictions we put on the contractor with this project is that because Interstate 70 is an economic backbone for the state, they can't close any lanes during daylight hours. Up until 7 p.m.,…
