Deck the Walls: Denver Arts Festival

Show your walls (and shelves) some love with fine-art finds ranging from landscape paintings to mixed-media works (including Tom Bloyd’s metal and glass sculptures, seen below). While you shop at the Central Park fest, enjoy wine tastings with La Crema winery and local bites, and stop by the kids’ art zone, where little Picassos can paint their own canvases. Bonus: All alcohol sales benefit Colorado Pet Pantry, a nonprofit that provides families in need with pet food. May 28, 10 a.m.–6 p.m.; May 29, 10 a.m.–5 p.m. Free admission.

Art Experience: Immersive Frida Kahlo

On the heels of the success of Immersive Van Gogh, the Frida Kahlo adaptation brings the legendary Mexican painter’s art and story to life via an interactive production. Video artist Massimiliano Siccardi and conductor Luca Longobardi (both also worked on Van Gogh) add mesmerizing movement and music to Kahlo’s surrealist paintings and self-portraits, as well as historical photographs. The larger-than-life exhibition is projected onto 360 degrees of gallery walls at Lighthouse Art Space, just west of the River North Art District. On view through May 31. Adult admission starting at $40, reservations required.
