Aug 21, 2018

Details

The Denver Architecture Foundation invites you to the finale of our 2018 Modernism Series, South Dahlia Lane Modernism Extravaganza, in partnership with Denver Modernism Week and sponsored by Adrian Kinney, Denver's Mid-Century Modern Expert. The event is Tuesday, August 21, 5:30 to 8:30 PM, on South Dahlia Lane.


About the evening: Join us at 5:30 PM for food + drink, social time, yard games including croquet, 50s and 60s board games, opportunities to explore the neighborhood and take pics at an outdoor photo booth and browse modernist decor vignettes from In the Wild, formerly known as Retro House Love. We are pleased to offer a raffle item from In the Wild; entry is included with ticket purchase. In the spirit of the era, there will be a neighborhood potluck and libations (two drink tickets per attendee) featuring a specialty cocktail, both included with ticket purchase, and Steuben's Food Truck will be on-site with food available for purchase. All the fun will be centered around South Dahlia Lane's private park and amphitheater. Come dressed in your mid-century garden party best!


The evening includes both guided and self-guided tours. Dana Sednek, neighborhood resident and historian, will guide tours around South Dahlia Lane. Informational neighborhood markers will aid participants through self-guided tours. Please note the following schedule for the evening and feel free to email us with any questions.
