Kids free FAM­ILY FUN: at His­tory Colorado

The Denver Post - - LIFE & CULTURE -

For a fun-filled day that the whole fam­ily can en­joy, the Colorado His­tory Cen­ter de­liv­ers a Wild West ad­ven­ture not to be missed. Look­ing for art? Bier­stadt’s land­scape paint­ings, Taos’ art colony’s vivid South­wester tableaus, and Rem­ing­ton’s bronzes con­tex­tu­al­ize the best of Colorado past for con­nois­seurs in the present. The ex­hibit “Back­story: Western Amer­i­can Art in Con­text” teaches his­tory through ar­ti­facts and vis­ual me­dia, in­clud­ing nearly 50 price­less works from the Den­ver Art Mu­seum. In “Des­ti­na­tion Colorado,” an in­ter­ac­tive 5,000-square-foot ex­hibit uses guides to make the home­steaded town of Keota come to life. 10 a.m.-5 p.m., free for kids 12 and un­der, 12 and older $10-12. 1200 Broad­way. Info at his­to­ry­col­orado­cen­ter.org or 303-447-8679. — Gra­ham Am­brose
