Well 56/56 proved to be a golden birthday indeed...thanks to my sweet family that indulged me for 2 solid days...traveling light with only my cell phone camera, come with me on my little birthday celebration excursion...we started with a fabulous dinner AND banana flambe like dessert at Tag
the three of us then went off to a wonderful dance/music performance at the Ellie Caulkin Opera House
Carry on by Paper Bird and the Colorado Nouveau dance company...go on, treat yourselft to 3:00 minutes by these talented performers...I'll wait
The Curtis downtown is a wonderful place to stay...but in less than a month my kiddo will be moved into her condo and we'll be staying at the very comfortable Casa Tess
we won't wear out our welcome...I promise
The Denver Art Museum opened a retrospect of the work of El Anatsui and as we wandered through his amazing works from his chain saw sculpted gatherings of figures to paintings, prints and finally his exquisite Kente cloth like hangings constructed of bottle caps. We were surprised and delighted to see the artist himself had come for this opening...even surprising some of the staff.
The exhibit is there through Dec 30th...catch it if you can
Next stop the Denver Botanic Gardens to see the bamboo sculptures of two installation artists working in bamboo: Tetsunori Kawana and Stephen Talasnik. Mr R had his camera and took many brilliant shots...I'll share those some cold winter day when I need to remember the late summer heat.
There you go...some postcards from my paradise
I may stretch this birthday thing out for a few more days...
