Cities of Splendor Chalk Art Event

In partnership with the Denver Chalk Art Festival, artist Michael Rieger will create three chalk art masterpieces, including one based on Giovanni da Bologna’s The Coronation of the Virgin, currently on view in the Cities of Splendor exhibition. High school artists will work with Rieger on two of the images while visitors can participate in completing the third piece.   http://www.denverartmuseum.org

Estes Park Jazz Fest & Art Walk

Two days of great jazz and beautiful art. Jazz performances at Performance Park, 417 W. Elkhorn Ave. The mid-May event is one of the highlights of the spring season – a kind of musical kickoff for summer. It’s deliberately planned for the same weekend as Art Walk, so you can visit galleries, listen to musical talent, have lunch and hear more music.

Denver Kaiser Permanente Colfax Marathon

Our new marathon course is the best urban tour around – taking runners on and off Colfax, through more parks and neighborhoods and trails – with more variety and more shade. And, as always, with a great view of the majestic front range.  This year, enjoy new stretches along the Cherry Creek Bike Trail, through Confluence Park,  along Invesco’s concourse, and through some hidden gem neighborhoods in west Denver and Lakewood.  It’s 26.2 miles of urban bliss.  May 15th. http://www.coloradocolfaxmarathon.org
