Photographers, woodworkers, tinkerers, craftsmen, art-lovers of all kinds: The gauntlet has been thrown!
The Denver Art Museum has issued Coloradans an "inspired design challenge." Can you turn an everyday object into a piece of art that improves your community? If you're up to the task, your own work — yes, even yours — can be on display at the downtown museum through the month of August. The challenge is called, "Open For Design: A DAM Community Challenge."
Submitted for your inspiration, a few ideas from the event's curators: turn a busted tea cup into a functional bird feeder. Sketch an idea to revitalize old pay phone kiosks. Or build a model of a new bus stop.
Projects are to be dropped off at the museum on Saturday, July 28 from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. Anyone in line by 4 gets in. You can check out the entry guidelines on the event's official page.
