Are Pictures Taken Through A Window Art Or Voyeurism? Find Out At The MCA Denver
Peek-a-boo, Arne Svenson's camera sees you. From a voyeuristic photo exhibition to a sleepover at one of Colorado's oldest venues to a Beatles reunion – of sorts – this week is pretty packed with options.
The Neighbors: Arne Svenson spent a year photographing his neighbors through their open windows. Art? Voyeurism? People are pretty split on it, including some of his neighbors, who sued for invasion of privacy. Documents from that court case (which Svenson successfully appealed, twice) also will be on display. You can hear from the photographer himself when he gives an artist talk March 31 at the Museum of Contemporary Art Denver.
Arne Svenson's 'The Neighbors,' on display through June 5, 2016, Museum of Contemporary Art Denver. $5-$8 (free for ages 18 and younger).
Slumber Party Weekend: If you miss the good-old days of pizza, prank calls and all-night slumber parties, you're in luck. Mishawaka Amphitheatre will celebrate its 100th birthday with a sleepover featuring a concert by Fort Collins '80s supergroup Velvet Rope. This side-project from local mainstays Matt Mahern & Constitution, Mama Lenny & The Remedy, and Musketeer Gripweed do a killer version of "Hungry Like the Wolf." Don't have your sleeping bag and footie pajamas at the ready? You can still catch just the show as well as a convenient shuttle up to the Poudre Canyon and back.
Mish 100 Sleep Out, 7:30 p.m. March 25, 2016, Mishawaka Amphitheatre. $15-$50.
Beatlemania: The Beatles are getting back together! OK, not really, but you might feel like they did with Let It Be. This jukebox-style show features the Beatles reunion that you always wanted, with pretty much every Fab Four hit - from "Hard Day's Night" to "Helter Skelter."
'Let it Be,' 7:30 p.m. March 29, 2016, Budweiser Events Center. $26-$66.
Extra! Extra!: In 1899, the newsboys of New York City went on strike for fair wages; in 1992, singing, dancing and Christian Bale were added on and that strike became the Disney movie Newsies. In 2012, it became a Broadway musical. If you remember the movie or you're just a history buff, this is a fun show to catch. Opening night was canceled due to the blizzard but shows are back on track.
'Newsies,' through April 9, 2016, Buell Theatre. $30-$115.
Reframe Disability: Films featuring individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and the issues surrounding them will be the focus of Arc of Larimer County's film festival, Reframe Disability. Filmmakers from around the world, as well as Colorado, will showcase their short films, including Beyond Borders, which follows three immigrants with disabilities in search of a better life.
Arc of Larimer County Film Festival, 6 p.m. March 31, 2016, Lory Student Center Theatre. $3-$5.
