LGBT History of Denver: Another Side of Colorado’s History <p>In the 1800s, Denver's districts of debauchery included access to "nymphs and fairies." The state's legal documents talked of "crimes against nature," and dressing in "non-conforming" clothing could lead to violence. Colorado has come a long way since then in its views on the lesbian/gay/bisexual/transgered community. From police raids and quietly whispered names of bars serving a special clientele to the days of marriage equality and high school support groups, we explore the local story—much of which is only now being documented by the people who saw it and lived it.</p> 1200 Broadway Denver, CO America/North_Dakota/Center

Box City <p>The Denver Architecture Foundation is proud to present BOX CITY 2019 in partnership with History Colorado Center on Saturday, April 13, from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM. This popular annual event is FUN and family-friendly!</p> <p>Box City is an event for children—grades K-5—where participants learn about the process of urban development and the principles that make for sound architecture, design and planning. Students start with a Building Permit for their desired building type, make a draft sketch of their building in the Design Studio, stop at the Hardware Store to get their cardboard and paper supplies, and then head to the Construction Zone to make their Box City structure. After completing the Building Inspection process, students head to the Box City street grid where an Urban Planner helps them select an appropriate building site. Finally, children finish the process by picking up their Certificate of Occupancy that includes a photo of them with their building.</p> 1200 Broadway Denver, CO America/North_Dakota/Center

Beer Here! Brewing the New West <p>A river of beer flows through Colorado's past.</p> <p>Back in the gold rush, saloons weren't just saloons. They were post offices, restaurants, hotels, and social clubs. But then Colorado banned alcohol—four years before Prohibition hit the rest of the country. By the 1970s, beer was big business again—really big business. Now, homebrewers have gone pro and it seems like there's a brewery on every corner.</p> <p>All of this making you thirsty for more? Come explore our brewing past, present, and future. See beer-brewing equipment from then to now, a massive bottle-breaker from Prohibition days, the nation's first aluminum beer cans, and a wealth of other artifacts from our state's hoppy history.</p> <p>More than just a tale of ale, this is a story of Colorado—told over a few beers.</p> <p>Beer Here! is generously supported by Coors Brewing Company and Ball Corporation.</p> 1200 Broadway Denver, CO America/North_Dakota/Center

Ancient Light <p>Lecture by Dr. Erica Ellingson, University of Colorado</p> <p>A thousand years ago, the Ancestral Puebloans built a great civilization in a landscape where even now the sky is a powerful presence. In this presentation, we’ll explore the deep understanding of the sky that’s expressed in Ancestral Puebloan art and architecture. We’ll examine the dance of light and shadow that trace the year at Mesa Verde and Chaco Canyon, and the subtle lunar cycles that were celebrated at Chimney Rock. Today, we see the same stars, sun and moon. By understanding them, we reach across the centuries to these ancient astronomers through our shared heritage of the sky.</p> 1200 Broadway Denver, CO America/North_Dakota/Center
