THE GREAT CHICKEN WING THROWDOWN

Aspen, Colo. (February 2, 2017) – Aspen is an incredibly philanthropic town. On any given day there’s a charitable event to participate in, an opportunity to volunteer or a sponsored lecture to attend. For the Roaring Fork Valley’s most vulnerable community members, organizations including Lift-Up, Feed My Sheep, Stepping Stones and The Aspen Homeless Shelter are of utmost importance to aid them in meeting their most basic needs. In turn, each of these causes relies upon outside support to assist them in their valiant efforts.  For this very reason, The Little Nell has partnered with Hotel Jerome, The St. Regis Aspen, Jazz Aspen Snowmass, Aspen Snowmass and Alchemy Audio Visual to present an event this spring, benefiting these four non-profits.

Save the date for The Great Chicken Wing Throwdown from 5 – 9 p.m. on Thursday, March 23, at the Sundeck – a fun fundraiser with music, food, drink, silent and live auctions, and an opportunity to show your support for four worthy causes.
“For all of these local businesses to come together and form a coalition to support our local community truly is remarkable,” noted Simon Chen, Managing Director for The Little Nell.

 

“There are an increasing number of people that need assistance in within our valley,” he continued.

“In our day-to-day life, as a society, we may not be aware of these needs, but they are very much a part of our community. In contributing our resources to help these individuals get back on their feet, we can all make a difference.”

 

Aspen chefs will compete for the best chicken wings in town and a trophy to show for it. Entertainment provided by Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe as the headlining act and DJ Dylan.

 

Tickets are available online now – included with your ticket price are chicken wings, gourmet sides, beer and wine, with a full cash bar available. VIP Tables, themed “Birds & Bubbles,” include wings paired with champagne, served by the finest sommeliers in Aspen. Early bird pricing of $100++/ticket is available for the first 100 tickets, which will increase to $150++ for the next 320, while the eight VIP tables for eight people are offered for $10,000++.

Promote Denver Couture And Jewelry:  New Alpine Informal Modeling Way

On the Front Range Denver fashion designers and jewelry designers compete fiercely for the attention and the bucks of affluent clients.

Their forays into the Colorado ski resort communities, mountain towns and Grand Junctions are near zero.  It’s time to change this.

Affluent female department store shoppers, fashion designers and department store merchandisers find comfort and pleasure in

observing informal fashion models strolling around.  Sometimes one must guess who the model is.

“Well, Denver fashion designers and jewelry designers I look to help you prosper by using the old time tested department store informal

fashion show modeling practice in a modern way in Snowmass Village, Aspen, Grand Junction, Vail, Durango and other mountain areas

in a smart Beverly Hills Rodeo Drive way”, says Mr. Emzy Veazy III, a fashion and entertainment industry forward thinker.

To get any kinks out of his new alpine informal fashion show modeling way Mr. Veazy will approach Denver Metro Area fashion designers

and jewelry designers to let him first use the Roaring Fork Valley as his test area.

By the way his only chosen informal fashion model for this special informal fashion modeling project is Ms. Hilary Way, 20-something,

height 5’8″.

TAKE A DELICIOUS JOURNEY THROUGH CHOCOLATE: THE EXHIBITION

The sweet experience opens at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science on Feb. 12

Chocolate. The word conjures up visions of candy bars, hot fudge sundaes, rich brownies, and other indulgences, yet chocolate’s origin as a bitter seed found deep in the rainforest has been known for thousands of years. Chocolate: The Exhibition—coming to the Denver Museum of Nature & Science on Friday, February 12—engages all the senses as guests trace the story of the “food of the gods,” from its earliest cultivation among the ancient Maya to its status today as the world’s favorite sweet treat.

We mostly know chocolate as a sugary dessert, but the ancient Maya knew it as a frothy, spicy drink made from the bitter seeds of the cacao tree and used in royal and religious ceremonies. It was coveted by later cultures—particularly the Aztec—and soon became a valuable article of trade. When the first Europeans reached the Aztec capital in 1519, instead of piles of gold they found treasure troves of cacao seeds. Eventually there was an insatiable European demand for chocolate and its new soul mate, sugar, which led to its rock-star status today.

In this bilingual exhibition, visitors of all ages will enjoy immersive exhibits, fun interactives, and detailed replicas and objects that place chocolate under the lenses of science, history, and popular culture.

  • Stand under a life-size cacao tree and examine the pods and seeds that are the source of chocolate.
  • See replicas of Maya vessels that once held the cacao drinks of kings and nobles.
  • Barter for precious cacao seeds in an interactive Aztec market experience.
  • Follow cacao’s journey to Spain, where it was combined with sugar and became a global commodity that caused a human toll to meet the growing demand.
  • Explore how technology and creative advertising during the Industrial Revolution transformed chocolate from an expensive luxury to an affordable product for all.
  • See European silver and porcelain chocolate servers, examples of 19th- and 20th-century advertising and packaging, and tools and techniques used for processing chocolate and creating delicious treats.
  • Learn about fair trade chocolate and the relationship between cocoa farmers, chocolate companies, and consumers.
  • Discover your “chocolate personality” with a fun game, and shop for chocolate treats and goodies.

“From its earliest roots among ancient peoples to its dominant role as a global commodity, chocolate is a study in world history,” said Chip Colwell, the Museum’s curator for the exhibition. “Guests will engage in an experience that not only shows how chocolate came to be such a delicious treat but also how its rise to fame and fortune has impacted cultures and our planet along the way.”

Organizers/Sponsors
Chocolate: The Exhibition and its national tour were developed by The Field Museum, Chicago. This exhibition was supported in part by the National Science Foundation. It is presented in Denver by Enstrom Toffee and Confectionary.

For Members of the Media
Advance press tours for reporters on assignment will be offered Feb. 9 and 10 between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. And complimentary access to the exhibition is available for reporters and their families Friday through Sunday, Feb. 12-14. Contact Maura O’Neal, maura.oneal@dmns.org to request a sneak peek tour or family access.

Members of the media are invited to the opening party on Friday, Feb. 126-9 p.m. RSVP to maura.oneal@dmns.org by Feb. 9.

The Total Package

Local Men’s Clothier + Barber Teams Up With Gym,

Offering Men Real Solutions to Fitness Woes

DENVER, December 23, 2015 – Like every other January, January of 2016 will bring with it the promise of new beginnings. In particular, men and women alike will sign up for gym memberships and personal training sessions in droves, determined to make this year the year they meet their physical fitness goals. And by the end of the first quarter–like most other years–many of these hopefuls will drop off the healthy living landscape, largely due to a lack of reasonable goals, professional guidance, and rewards along the way.

This year, however, Spruce is looking to change all of that. Co-owners Becca and Taylor Romero have teamed up with Titanium Fitness co-owners Anthony Nakamura and Beth Henderson to issue a challenge to men designed to be realistic, regulated, and rewarding. “Often, the problem with trying to begin a newly healthy lifestyle right after the new year is that it can be really overwhelming,” says Nakamura. “There are so many different lifestyle changes that may need to be made–it’s hard to do it all at once. Not only that, but different exercise programs and diets seek to accomplish different things; it’s important to not only set attainable goals, but know exactly what path you need to take to reach them.” Becca Romero adds, “We wanted this partnership to offer both the guidance and planning needed to see change happen, as well as the reward for when that change does happen: a new look for your body means a new look for your wardrobe as well!”

Spruce and Titanium have worked together to build what will be the comprehensive “New Year, New You” package for men, at only $150 total, to include:

  • Initial individual fitness assessments to include current fitness status and reachable goals with follow-up fitness assessment at the end of the program (Valued at $69)

  • Six-week bootcamp program centered around strength training to increase muscle mass and speed up metabolism (to include nutritional counseling) (Valued at $100)

  • Unlimited group classes at Titanium Fitness (Valued at $120)

  • Free Regular Haircut and beard trim at Spruce (Valued at $50)

  • Free style consult at Spruce at the end of the program

  • Option to upgrade for personal training sessions with either Nakamura or Henderson for an additional $50/session

The entire package is crafted, from start to finish, to provide consistency, discipline, and professional guidance, with a reward of a new look for the man who feels like a new person entirely. The structure that the “New Year, New You” program provides will maximize opportunities for success and lasting results, as well as motivation to maintain healthy progress.
“New Year, New You” classes begin January 18th. Men can sign up and pre-pay at either Spruce (4347 Tennyson Street, Denver) or Titanium Fitness (5700 W 25th Avenue #200B, Denver.) For more information, contact Becca with Spruce or Anthony with Titanium Fitness.

 FOR IMMEDIATE PRESS RELEASE

Title: New York Attitude, Two Stars For Denver Fashion Show

The Denver fashion scene is alive and popping.  Its ascendency is between the fashion worlds in New York City and Los Angeles. In showbiz and fashion in both in The Big Apple and The City of Angeles attitude, swagger and styling are all the enduring industry characteristics.
The New York City attitude lets it strong imprint upon Hollywood and Beverly Hills’ Rodeo Drive.  It worked untold wonders for them.  The same can be done for the Denver fashion industry and even the area’s television and film industry.
Producing a novel Denver fashion show preliminarily called “New York Attitude:  2 Runway Star Models” is an exciting project to put together. What better fashion models to feature than two stars representing the ends of the Earth with the Seven Seas between. Their modeling, acting and music careers are somewhat similar and overlap for most of their long fabulous celebrity careers.
Hollywood actress/model Milla Jovovich and Thai superstar and model Marsha Vadhanapanich (Marsha Wattahanapanich) are the desired featured runway models to be in this one of a kind Denver spectacular. Now what more suited Denver fashion designer to clothe these internationally known wonder women than the most illustrious Maggie Burns of Marie-Margot Couture.  Her elegant and exquisite fashions are eye popping with oooooohs and aaaaaaahs to go with them.
As for some of the New York attitude to go with this marvelous fashion production, the security will be handled by New York security consultant Mark J. Gadsden of Mark J. Gadsden & Associates, Inc.  For more than 30 years in New York City he has honed his security know-how in the nightlife, nightclub, restaurant and special events celebrity scene.
By the way, pick up a copy of Memoirs Of A Bouncer, The Real Men In Black by Mark J. Gadsden.  Its both a well blended autobiography and a security professional manual for security professionals, venue owners, producers and others involved with city nightlife, nightclubs, restaurants and special events.
Be pleased, rewarded and transfixed by the legendary showbiz wow! New York City attitude coming to you in this starstruck runway affair the audience will remember like a Broadway play on the Great White Way in New York.
When?  The second half of 2016 before the January 2017 motion picture release of Milla Jovovich’s Resident Evil: The Final Chapter” presently finished filming in South Africa.
“This baby is going to the definite talked about Denver special affair of the coming year like no other before or after it,” says producer Emzy Veazy III.” We are reaching from Denver and New York City to Hollywood and overseas to Thailand. I take my cues from the likes of old time Broadway producers, Hollywood producer/talent manager Jay Bernstein, Rodeo Drive Committee Fred Hayman and Will Rogers Polo Club founder C.D. LeBlanc.”

Bonnie Brae salon offers free “Spa Day” for people with Alzheimer’s and their caregivers before the holidays
– Program pampers patients and provides much needed stress-relief for caregivers –
Denver, CO, December 21st 2015 – The Alzheimer’s Association® is partnering with Blondie’s the Beaury Shop on Monday December 21st from 11:00am-1:00pm to help people living in the early-stage of Alzheimer’s and their caregivers this holiday season by offering free services, relaxation, and community to participants at their first annual “Spa Day for Alzheimer’s” event.  Blondie’s in-demand stylists are donating their time and talents to support this cause and receive special training through the Alzheimer’s Association’s effort to create “Dementia-friendly” communities here in Denver.

Now more than ever, our non-medical businesses, hair salons, banks, restaurants, etc. need to be aware of and sensitive to the the needs of more and more people living with early memory loss accessing our communities.

“Giving back to our community is so important to us and its amazing to work with people living with Alzheimer’s disease and help make them feel beautiful for a day.”

-Blondie’s Stylist Erin Tafoya

Traditionally, people have been diagnosed later in the progression of Alzheimer’s, so many dementia-related programs have been more focused on serving people in the middle-stage of the disease. This program provides an opportunity for people still living at home with their caregivers to connect and take advantage of community resources.

About the Alzheimer’s Association
The Alzheimer’s Association is the world’s leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer care, support and research. Our mission is to eliminate Alzheimer’s disease through the advancement of research, to provide and enhance care and support for all affected, and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health. Our vision is a world without Alzheimer’s. Visit www.alz.org or call 800-272-3900.

The Denver Museum of Nature & Science Launches Crowdsourcing Project on Sweet Taste 

Human microbiome the focus of new research investigation into sweet taste

DENVER―Nov. 10― The Genetics of Taste Lab at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science is the new home to cutting-edge research on the human microbiome―the unique group of bacteria in and on each person’s body—and how it affects how we experience sweet taste. The study opened to the public for participation on Nov. 6. The scientific team, led by Museum Curator Nicole Garneau PhD, and Bowling Green State University Assistant Professor Robin Tucker PhD, RD, will use this novel model of crowdsourcing to test their hypothesis that certain compositions of mouth bacteria increases a person’s “sweet tooth,” thereby affecting overall health.

“Microbes can be found all over your body. The biggest concentrations are located in your gut, mouth, and on the surface of your skin. This collection of microbes in and on you is unlike anyone else’s and is more unique to you than your fingerprint,” Garneau said. “Delineating the human microbiome is truly the next big discovery. It’s akin to how sequencing the human genome changed the landscape of the health industry, advancing our understanding of how the body works and therefore how to diagnose and fix it when it doesn’t, “she added.

“With the community’s involvement, this study will help us understand how the microbes in a person’s mouth might actually influence how we experience sweet taste. Differences in microbial composition could be another key to understanding sweet preferences and how the microbiome affects our overall health through the foods we choose and enjoy.” Tucker added.

The Genetics of Taste Lab is a one-of-a-kind space for conducting research. It exclusively relies on members of the public to both provide population data through crowdsourcing and also conduct the analysis through the Lab’s citizen scientist program. Crowdsourcing recruits members of the public for a 30-minute enrollment session in which participants answer a few questions, swab a cheek for DNA, and taste a series of sweetened water samples. This experience is guided by citizen scientists – people who volunteer their time helping collect the data from the public participants and then help process and analyze the genetic data alongside the Lab’s scientists. The goal is to enroll 1,000 people over the course of the nine-month study. Children ages 8 to 17 are welcome to participate with a legal guardian present.

“We highly encourage family groups, large and small, close and extended, to come out and be a part of this research,” said Garneau. “And we always welcome twins and multiples, which help us answer additional questions about taste genetics.”

This is the third study for the Genetics of Taste Lab with a focus on how very small distinctions in a person’s DNA can have a huge impact on how they perceive taste and how taste relates to overall health. Visit the Genetics of Taste Lab website (www.dmns.org/genetics) for free access to all publications from the lab and to learn more about the progress of this current research.

“The Lab is committed to making scientific research accessible and personally relevant to people’s everyday lives,” Garneau said. “Actively generating and publishing new knowledge contributes to the field of genetics and human health.”

The Genetics of Taste Lab is located in Expedition Health, the Museum’s very popular exhibition about human biology, and the research is made possible by a partnership between the Health Science and Visitor Programs Departments at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science and the Department of Public and Allied Health at Bowling Green State University. In addition to participating in citizen-scientist projects, visitors can peer into the real working genetics lab 364 days a year. (The Museum is closed on Dec. 25.) Enrollment will be available daily on a first come-first served basis from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. For large family groups, we encourage you to email genetics@dmns.org to schedule an appointment.

Free tours of the Governor’s Mansion Will Be Offered in December

Visit Colorado’s Home Decorated for the Holidays 
ThursdaySunday, December 3-6 and again December 10-13, 
10 a.m. – 2 p.m.

The Governor’s Residence Preservation Fund (GRPF) announced today that free public tours of the Governor’s Residence, decorated by the American Society of Interior Designers Colorado Chapter for the holidays, will be offered Thursday through Sunday, December 3 through December 6 and December 10 through December 13 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. so that all may enjoy the history and beauty of Colorado’s Home.

The Governor’s Residence does not take reservations. All guests are admitted on a first come, first served basis and large groups are encouraged to email info@grpfund.org in advance.
For the third year in a row, interior design members of ASID competed for the opportunity to provide holiday decorations for the Governor’s Residence at the Boettcher Mansion. “Colorado’s Home,” as the Residence is known, welcomes well over 5,000 guests during the holiday season to view the decorations.

The 2015 decor motif is “Colorful Colorado.” Six rooms of the former Boettcher mansion will be professionally decorated with a color inspired look. Themes of the rooms include EVER GREEN, PURPLE MOUNTAINS MAJESTY, POWDER DAYS, 5280 SHADES OF BLUE, GOLDEN WAVES OF GRAIN AND RED ON THE ROCKS.
In addition, the Governor’s Residence Preservation Fund (GRPF), unveiled the 2015 holiday ornament. A commemorative holiday ornament, inspired by an object in the Governor’s Residence at the Boettcher Mansion, is designed and added to a collection each year.

Each of the ornaments in the series are made in the USA of the finest quality brass, screen-printed in exquisite colors, and hand finished in sparkling 24-karat gold. They are packaged in a gift box with a hot-stamp of the image of the ornament created by Whitney Designs, Inc. of Denver. All ornament proceeds support the efforts of the Governor’s Residence Preservation Fund.

The 2015 holiday ornament, available for purchase now, is modeled after the garden gazebo and is the seventh ornament in the series. While traveling abroad, Claude and Edna Boettcher purchased an exquisite columned stone garden gazebo with an ornate wrought iron dome for the East lawn of their mansion. The gazebo’s limestone entablature and decorative wrought iron dome are supported by limestone Corinthian columns embedded with seashells from the Mediterranean. Each column is adorned with classical elements carved in stone. Carved stone benches spanned between the columns.
Based on photos, it was determined that the benches were removed from the gazebo in the late 1980s. It is likely that the State was unable to repair the benches and removed them out of concern for the safety of Residence visitors. Thanks to the generous support from The State Historical Fund, Gates Family Foundation, and the Colorado Questers, the beautiful limestone gazebo has just recently been preserved for future generations to enjoy. Ornaments may be ordered online now at http://www.coloradoshome.org/gift-shop/ for just $30 plus shipping, picked up now at the Molly Brown House Museum gift shop at 1340 Pennsylvania Street or purchased at the Governor’s Residence during the free holiday tours in December.

Visit http://www.coloradoshome.org for more information and to view the entire ornament collection.

Matthew Morris Salon and Skincare’s 9TH Anniversary Show 

“Nothing about Matthew Morris, his south Broadway salon, or the parties he throws are without epic attention to some very boss details.” – Denver Post

Denver, CO – Saturday, September 26, Matthew Morris will end summer the right way, by celebrating 9 successful years at their annual Anniversary Runway Show! Every party only seems to get better, with endless surprises and intricate details. Designed to impress, Matthew Morris Salon and Skincare presents an intimate and immersive evening with Troy Guard, and runway extravaganza with the latest collections from Project Runway’s Mondo Guerra and Viktor Luna.

Luna’s past collections have been seen at Merecedes-Benz New York Fashion Week, ELLE Mexico Magazine, French VOGUE Magazine, New York Times, Marie Claire Magazine, Harper’s Bazaar and Nylon Mexico.

The Denver born fashion favorite, Mondo Guerra, is the designer and social influencer who’s innovative style and bold prints captured the hearts of the fans in the fashion world when he starred on “Project Runway”, “Project Runway All Stars” and became the audience’s favorite mentor on “Under The Gunn”. Mondo’s visual aesthetics often carry a social message that intercepts his art for his advocacy.

Whether you know it or not, you’ve probably heard of Troy Guard—or at least you’ve heard of his food. He’s the mastermind, chef, and owner of the restaurant empire here in Denver, which includes; TAG, TAG Raw Bar, Los Chingones, Sugarmill, Guard and Grace, and his new breakfast joint in Stapleton that is yet to be named.He’s worked alongside several big names in the culinary biz, and he’s known for pushing the boundaries of creativity. But it’s not just about food for Guard, he is responsible for more than 250 employees. For him it’s more about creating opportunities, providing jobs and helping to contribute nearly $100,000 each year in both time and resources to the community. As great friends of Matthew Morris, it only seems right to collaborate the reality star favorites and the restaurateur, for the 9th year anniversary show.

Morris is known for creating a night of “artistry and flair” says Black-Tie Colorado, the parties host a killer crowd- “the most dapper of Denver’s male hipster population” says The Denver Post, and the most fashionable ladies, and well-connected mile high socialites in Denver. When they warn you tickets sell out fast, they mean it.

Toasting to a successful and memorable year, Matthew Morris Salon and Skincare invites you to come join them at their 9th Anniversary Annual Runway show that “puts all other block parties to shame”, says The Denver Post.  A night to celebrate success, fashion, and charity! Matthew Morris’s celebrations are always the “talk of the town for weeks after…but it’s not just about him: the events raise money”. This year’s party will benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Proudly announcing, their General Manager, L’Erin Stortz, as one of the nominees for Colorado’s Finest 2015, benefiting the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. The CFF chose their pick for who they think are the top 20 young professionals in the community that demonstrate strong leadership, community involvement, compassion, and influential accomplishments. The team at MM feels very honored she is being recognized by the CFF for being one them.

The CFF touches close to home for all of them at MM. Soley, the daughter of one of their stylists, was born with CF and the disease has caused her to go through a lot of pain and sadness over the years while spending endless hours in hospitals and doctors’ visits. Knowing children like Soley progressively get worse the older they get, makes it that much harder on them and their families. Their stylist says, “Cystic fibrosis is a devastating genetic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system. More than ten million Americans are symptomless carriers of the defective CF gene. When the Foundation began in 1955, most children with CF did not live to see their first day of elementary school. Thankfully, because of funding and donations, it has provided so much more research and tools to extend their lifespan from just a kid to 27 and now 37 years old. It really makes you appreciate your valuable time with your children and your own life”.

EL SALON WINS BEST SALON BY 303 MAGAZINE;

PARTICIPATES IN EVENT TO SUPPORT CENTRO HUMANITARIO

Denver-based Salon Celebrates Multiple Awards and

Milestones Including Exclusive Stylist for New York Fashion Week

 

DENVER, Colo., June 15, 2015 – El Salon, an award winning, full service salon based in Denver, Colorado announced today two significant awards; Best Salon by 303 Magazine and Southwest Hairstylist of the Year, Ron Lopez. Additionally, this past February the salon was once again invited to participate at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York.

 

“When I launched El Salon almost 30 years ago my vision was to create an environment where clients feel beautiful and our stylists can express their creativity,” said Steve Trujillo, owner, El Salon. “This recent recognition is beyond what I could have ever imagined. I’m lucky to work with such an amazing team here at El Salon.”

 

Recently, El Salon won Best Salon in 2015 by 303 Magazine as well as Southwest Hairstylist of the Year for Ron Lopez. The salon won despite strong competition from seven categories and out of seven surrounding states. The salon has won past awards for Best Salon (303 Magazine, 2009), Colorado Hairstyling Awards – Hairstylist of the Year 2014, Colorist of the Year 2014 and 5280 Magazine Top of the Town – Top Colorist 2005.

 

The winner of Southwest Hairstylist of the Year, Ron Lopez, was once again invited to participate in February’s New York Fashion Week. Ron worked with Beauty Underground for the Costello Tagliapietra SS16 show. The show, which was held at Lincoln Center was produced by Kelly Cutrone of People’s Revolution. Amidst the beautiful collection, Lopez created a sleek look with clean, loosely pulled back hair that was styled in a chic half knot in the back.

 

“It was an honor to once again partner with New York Fashion Week. Costello Tagliapietra have such a unique, visionary approach to fashion it was wonderful to work with them,” said Lopez, Educational Director, El Salon. “The added bonus of Kelly Cutrone working as producer make the experience even more fulfilling.”

 

Finally, El Salon participated in Historias on June 14, a Fashion and Hair Show to support Centro Humanitario, an organization that strives to promote the rights and well-being of day laborers in Colorado through education, job skills, leadership development, united action and advocacy. The event was held at the Exdo Event Center. For more information visit www.centrohumanitario.org.

Artist Laura Krudener’s New Storytelling Platform

DENVER, Colo. (March 29, 2015) – Among The Colors, a Denver-based storytelling platform for the creative female,today announced its launch and accompanying party next Friday, June 5th. Founded by Denver-based artist Laura Krudener, Among the Colors is a lifestyle and community project focused on bringing color and creativity into the livesof its readers, writers and collaborators.

Featuring original content, collaborations with artists and makers, and guides to inspired living, Among the Colors offers passion and thoughtfulness to help enrich and inspire the art of everyday life. Through artist interviews, fashion profiles on creative women, and food and wellness guides, Among the Colors will curate a Contemporary Bohemian style authentic to it’s roots in Denver, Colorado.

“As an artist, I am often asked, “What inspires you?” I took this question and created a multi-faceted, multi-media project to answer that question for myself, as well as create a dialogue with others about inspiration, creativity and self-expression.” – Laura Krudener

“The layout of the site promotes users stumbling through large images like a mood board and the text pieces draw inspiration from classic editorial layouts but have unexpected instances of playfulness.” – Frankie Bushell, Cirro.

The name Among the Colors comes from the great poet, Rainer Marie Rilke. “Painting is something that takes place among the colors. One has to leave them alone completely, so that they can settle the matter among themselves.” This poem eloquently speaks to the surrender and freedom of the creative process.

The Among the Colors launch party will be hosted at Laura Krudener’s art studio at Taxi. Plus Gallery will present anew series of paintings by Laura Krudener. Denver’s new non-toxic nail salon, Base Coat, will be doing a pop up of art-themed manicures. Other creative collaborations include an installation by Impromptu Company, cocktails by RiNo Yacht Club and music by nat select. A limited edition signed art print by Laura Krudener will be available for purchase to commemorate the evening as well as swag bag giveaways promoting some of Denver’s finest local businesses in fashion, food, and beauty.

About Laura Krudener:                                                                                                                                                                

Laura Krudener’s paintings question the impermanence of form while depicting a state of flux. Through various poured techniques and layered drawings, each layer of Krudener’s paintings is informed from the movement of the previous layer. Finding a suspended stillness in the motion of the paint, Krudener’s paintings become a meditation on movement, and the constant search for stillness. Krudener’s paintings are experimental, energetic, and bold. Each painting is its own laboratory into the macrocosm of the universe.

Laura Krudener received her MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute in 2009. Most recent solo exhibitions include Standing on a Mystery with Plus Gallery in 2014. Other exhibitions include New Very New with Plus Gallery 2015, Suspended Chaos with Plus Gallery in 2013, and New Paintings at Space Gallery in 2010. Laura has most recently been featured in magazines Modern in Denver and Luxe Colorado. Her work is collected in private homes in Colorado and New York, among others, as well as several Colorado corporate private collections. Laura paints in her studio in Denver’s RiNO art district.

DENVER’S HISTORIC LARIMER SQUARE CELEBRATES 50TH ANNIVERSARY  OF HISTORIC PRESERVATION

Year of special events and festivals planned to mark a half-century as Denver’s most beautiful and treasured block

May 13, 2015 (DENVER) – 2015 marks the 50th anniversary of historic preservation for Larimer Square, Denver’s first and oldest downtown shopping, dining and entertainment district. To celebrate the golden anniversary, Larimer Square is partnering with its unique and independent mix of retailers and the block’s many notable chefs and restaurateurs to host over a dozen special events throughout the year.

Planned celebrations include a special “Stories from the Square” speaker series where Larimer Square will host five panel discussions throughout the year, each focusing on a topic that honors the history of Larimer Square and features business & industry leaders, developers, historians and Denver icons. Larimer Square will also host an official celebration on Saturday, August 15 to mark this milestone anniversary as well as surprise visitors throughout the year with 50th anniversary commemorative items and special activities on the square.

Signature events include the popular Dining Al Fresco nights when some of the region’s best chefs celebrate the warm weather of summer and the season’s best produce by serving their guests seated outside in the blocked off street under Larimer Square’s canopy of lights, the annual Denver Chalk Art Festival that draws artists from around the state and around the world to the block to showcase their talents on the beloved street, and the return of Le Jardin Secret, the popular European-style open air market held every Saturday from June 6th through September 26th.

“When I took over ownership of this block back in 1993, it was an architecturally beautiful area filled with large, national chain stores. In order to create a memorable, unreplicated visitor experience, we carefully curated a mix of independent shop owners and chefs that were local, artisanal and in many cases, exclusive to Denver. That we’re getting the opportunity to celebrate Larimer Square’s 50th Anniversary at a time of rapid expansion is a testament to the success of our growth strategy for the block,” said Jeff Hermanson, President & CEO of Larimer Associates, the company that owns and manages Larimer Square.
