Two Colorado nonprofits are bringing a Telluride-based film festival to Denver. And if bringing one of the most inspiring film festivals for outdoorsmen and women alike wasn't enough, they're even throwing a raffle for outdoor gear and lining the parking lot with local food trucks. Mmmhmm.

Art doesn't often require Bureau of Land Management clearance. In fact, Christo Javacheff's proposed Over the River is the first to do so. Christo, an acclaimed artist known for large-scale works of temporary art, hopes to hang 5.9 miles of fabric above the Arkansas River. The art installation, now more than 20 years in the making, has caused some controversy with conservationists, which he'll address in a presentation about his project. Thu 6 p.m.
