"Human | Nature" by Twilight

Member Exclusive Event at Denver Botanic Gardens
Thursday, August 15, 2019 6:00pm - 8:00pm

Contemporary Alliance collaborates with The DAM Associates for it's third annual Twilight in the Gardens.

Join collector Craig Ponzio, Rebecca Hart, Denver Art Museum's (DAM) Vicki and Kent Logan Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, and Lisa Eldred, Denver Botanic Gardens' Director of Exhibitions and Head Curator of Art, for a private reception and exploration of selections from the Ponzio collection.

Human | Nature presents sculptures that explore the human form in both classical and abstract styles, from the early 20th century to today. Featured artists hail from around the world and include Eric Fischl, Jacques Lipchitz, Sassona Norton, Beverly Pepper, Auguste Rodin and Manolo Valdés.

A reception will be held in the Annuals Garden & Pavilion. Volunteers will direct you, and docents will be stationed throughout the Gardens. Following the event, you're welcome to enjoy the landscape until closing at 9:00 pm.
