Drop-In Writing: This is the Modern World--The Shapes & Colors of Place
[Collaboration with the Denver Art Museum]
Tuesday, October 25, 1:00 to 3:00 PM
@Denver Art Museum, 100 14th Avenue, Hamilton Building - Level 1
Pick up a pencil and spark your creative interests in these informal writing sessions. With the help of a DAM instructor, try your hand at a new writing topic every month, while visiting various museum galleries. Join us as we explore writing about place using the tools we know best: color, shape, and texture. We’ll visit What It Meant to Be Modern as we consider not only how our sense of place is affected by such sensory information, but also how place often becomes a destination—and an emotional entity, too. Free with museum admission. No reservations required.
