Art for Everyone

The Denver Theatre District enlivens a 16-block area of downtown Denver through interactive, immersive and experimental arts and culture events and experiences. We provide creatives with a platform and financial support for sharing their work.

Many of our events and programs, such as Supernova and Understudy, become woven into the fabric of downtown or spark ideas and trends in other cities.

We formed the Denver Theatre District to bring light, art and activity to the streets of downtown Denver. The DTD launched as a public-private partnership backing the idea that managed outdoor media could support downtown activity and bring exciting unique urban experiences to the public. Over the years the DTD became a key participant in the downtown environment and a force in Denver’s artistic community.

we give people a reason to come downtown, be part of the city and have fun.

Impact

The DTD leaves a lasting impact on the Denver and artistic community through a revenue share model that is the first of its kind in the nation. Our media companies sell corporate advertising on the static and LED screens located throughout the district. We take a revenue share from those sales to fund art and cultural activities for the public. Recently, we worked with Colorado Business Committee for the Arts to determine our actual impact:

$1,000,000+

SPENT on District art and cultural activation

$250,000+

in DONATED LED screen time and billboard space to nonprofit arts organizations

160+

experience-based events LAUNCHED OR SUPPORTED

370,000+

visitors DRAWN downtown for unique cultural experiences

Here I Am With You

Here I Am With You

Caleb Hahne

July 5 – 30, 2019

Here I Am With You addresses themes of memory, vulnerability, intimacy and boyhood. Working in blue, my drawings are experienced through the lens of the uncanny. Through storytelling, I reflect on a lineal space, often meeting a memory.

I am interested in the landscape and its relationship to the body. The impermanence of our bodies against a perpetual space; a blue sky, constantly changing upon arrival.

These paintings utilize the power of our personal histories and agency of how we view and interact with spaces that are veiled by memories. The ambiguity of the figures allow the viewer to unconsciously find themselves reflecting on their own memories and question if this is an experience they too have versed.

Here I Am With You will run at Understudy July 5th – July 30, 2019. There will be a special opening reception on July 5th from 6:00pm – 9:00pm with the artist in attendance.

Understudy will be open for visitation Wednesday through Saturday from 12:00pm – 5:00pm. Understudy is free-to-visit and open to all.
