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

Pink Tube of Goo, a short film in several styles, depicts the internal negotiations of an individual in a chorus of existential conflict as a stream of dream-like vignettes. The film focuses on the common presumption that the participation of an individual’s physical body determines the premiere reality, and suggests that a virtual-, dream- or thought-experience is likened to creating an alternate, and just-as-deeply-felt, reality as the one commonly dwelled in.

Pink Tube of Goo will be shown on repeat daily January 4th through January 26th, 2019. Look for the call-in number to hear the audio posted on Understudy’s windows. The opening reception with the artist will be January 4th from 7:00pm–9:00pm.

Biography

Andi Todaro is a versatile, multi-disciplinary, craftsman and award-winning creative professional, best known for their broad scale and range of practical and impractical knowledge and eccentric dress. Todaro pursues an ever-evolving skill set, fueled by perpetual desire for self-astonishment, be it mastery of a new computer program, mechanical know-how, scale, or experimental process.

Todaro’s unique aptitude for absorbing, processing and implementing new knowledge is the eddy in which deep emotional expression and the inherent compulsion to be productive takes root. Digesting chaos through a dream and metaphysical practice allows for a unique style of integration and deeper understanding of multiple interests in commercial art design, science, geometry, philosophy, astrology, mathematics, game theory, aesthetics, semiotics, social science and linguistics.

Todaro does 3 crosswords a day, and plays lots of video games.

“The Spirit of Discovery resides inside Andi. She has made a life long friend of herself, and they frequently collaborate.” –Max Johanson

“”Anything and everything” could be object of artist Andi Todaro’s creative canvas. From Runway Model to Graphic Designer, she has got the gamut of creativity covered ten-fold.” -Jeanne Connolly
