Diversions

The AAUW Lakewood Branch enjoys diversions — one-time events that are entertaining, educational, and often “outside the box.” In the past we have experienced outdoor adventures, attended cultural and historical programs, and explored the world of chocolate.

The Western: An Epic in Art and Film

Denver Art Museum
Aug. 22, 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
Cost: $5 to $15 (non-member) but we can be guests of members. Plus $5 for the special exhibit.

Lakewood Branch Member Barb O’Neal will be tour leader.

The Western: An Epic in Art and Film is the first major exhibition to examine the Western genre and its evolution from the mid-1800s to the present through fine art, film, and popular culture. Featuring 160 works, the exhibition explores gender roles, race relations, and gun violence offering a visual journey that is more than cowboys and American Indians, pursuits and duels, or bandits and barroom brawls.

Stay for lunch afterward in Palettes, the restaurant in the museum, which will soon be closing. Please call Diane Meyer at 303-635-0387 if interested in tickets, in eating and/or carpooling.
