FIRST FRIDAY

FIRST FRIDAY | APRIL 7, 2017 | 5 PM TO 8 PM
DIVINE LIVING + A NIGHT WITH JOHN B. SMITH

April at Cottonwood will feature the next juried exhibition, as well as a special First Friday event devoted to performance art and activism.  

The show, divine living, is an all-media exhibit devoted to the questions we ask ourselves about how to live more meaningful lives and our search for connection with something greater than ourselves

In addition, through a partnership with Together for Colorado Springs, Colorado Springs Council for Justice, the Pikes Peak Justice & Peace Commission and SURJ Colorado Springs, the evening will include a special program of performance art, film and activism centered on John B. Smith, a founding member of the civil rights group, the Invaders, who organized the seminal Memphis sanitation workers strike.

Beginning at 5:30 pm, there will be a talk by Smith, followed by live music by a local band, and an interpretive dance performance by Tre Newman of Colorado College. Throughout the night there will be an ambient screening of the feature-length documentary film, The Invaders, which tells the story of the strike. Find more information at: https://goo.gl/MxirAD.

These events are made possible by support from Colorado Creative Industries.
