Tickets

The show is part of the Gardens’ 2018 summer concert series. Three-time Grammy Award winner Angélique Kidjo and Femi Kuti bring the grooves to Denver Botanic Gardens. Kidjo puts a spin on the Talking Heads’ 1980 album Remain in the Light, reinterpreting them with electrifying rhythms, African guitars, and layered backing vocals. Kuti and his Afrobeat band, Positive Force, are continually expanding the music’s vocabulary, adding hints of punk and hip-hop to the sound, while maintaining its traditional roots and political message.

Pixelated: Sculpture by Mike Whiting

Pixelated: Sculpture by Mike Whiting
York Street, Denver
Now – September 23, 2018
Tickets 

Pixelated explores the relationships between the natural world and the artificial world of digital media. Mike Whiting says, “Gardens are in their own way virtual spaces—carefully created environments. The contrast of the sculptures’ geometric and manmade materials can seem at odds with the gardens, but they are connected in the dialogue about the re-presentation of nature.”
