Friday, July 19, 2013 | Civic Center Park

Starting at 8:00 p.m. on Friday, July 19, 2013, the 2013 Biennial of the Americas will host Denver Night in Civic Center Park, featuring Nick Cave, eclectic art and music, and members of The Fray.

The Bonfils-Stanton Foundation presents Denver Night, a free public event celebrating Denver’s unique cultural community. Adam Lerner and Chris Kallmyer have curated an eclectic evening of music and art, including folk, classical, jazz, rock and avant-garde music in addition to video, art, sculpture, and dance. Contemporary artist Nick Cave will transform Civic Center Park with HEARD•DAM, a specifically choreographed performance in connection with Cave’s exhibition at the Denver Art Museum, Nick Cave: Sojourn.

The event will feature local performers, life-sized horse Soundsuits as well as music and movement in an electrifying and inspiring performance. Made from a variety of materials, Soundsuits are wearable sculptures designed to make sounds as the wearer shimmies and shakes. The live show also includes a dog opera performance accompanied by the Colorado Symphony, as well as a special acoustic performance by members of Denver’s own, The Fray.

This event is free and open to the public.  Visit for more information.
