When: April 6-May 5 2012


This is a Friday of milestones. To begin, it's the first ArtWalk of the year in Old Colorado City (bestartontheavenue.com), so hit up places like Cucuru, Domino and the Squash Blossom between 5 and 8 p.m. Head east for the "Grand Opening/(very) 1st Friday Opening" of Sabi (330 N. Institute St., tinyurl.com/shopsabi), hosting works by Phil Lear from 7 to 10. On your way back, celebrate the first birthday of Marmalade at Smokebrush (219 W. Colorado Ave., smokebrush.org), kicking off at 5 with "Spring Awakening" yoga and a Lakota peace pipe ceremony. Then hop to the Modbo (17C E. Bijou St., themodbo.com) for artwork by mother-son team Maggie Quinn and Harley David Young, and to S.P.Q.R. (17B E. Bijou St.) for Art Aloud, a juried show of work inspired by "the written and spoken word." The latter opening, kicking off at 5:30, will feature live readings of the words that influenced the art. Lastly, you can usher in a new generation of high school artists at the Business of Art Center's 13th annual Wunderkind show (513 Manitou Ave., Manitou Springs, thebac.org), opening from 5 to 8 (and pictured above). — Edie Adelstein
