• Have you ever wondered to yourself what your dog is thinking? The Denver Museum of Nature and Science has you covered. Their exhibit “Dogs! A Science Tail” is a fun, interactive glimpse into the world of our canine friends. The exhibit highlights the extraordinary ways dogs see, hear, and smell their surroundings and explores why humans and dogs are best friends. Experience range from listening to hidden sounds that dogs can hear but human’s cant, excavating replicas of fossils to determine if they belong to wolves or dogs, walking a dog through an interactive neighborhood to understand how pets strength the community and testing your pop culture knowledge during a game of “Jeapawdy.” A separate dated and timed ticket is required for both “Dogs! A Science Tail” and general admission so be sure to add both to your cart.

• Aviation Day is celebrated nationally on August 19th to promote all things aviation and falls on the anniversary of Orville Wright’s birthday, but why celebrate for just one day?? Join the Wings Over the Rockies to celebrate Aviation Day with discounted admission, fun contests and prizes for all ages from Aug. 19 – Aug. 23. Head here to purchase tickets and be sure to enter in the date and time you are interested in going.

• K Contemporary presents “Black Bodies – White Lies,” incredibly timely, thought-provoking, and ground breaking exhibition and performance by an international acclaimed artist, Carlos Martiel. “Black Bodies – White Lies” is a compilation of performances done previously by the artist in Buenos Aires at CCK, Denver for the Biennial of the Americas, and the last one in New York during Martel’s confinement for the pandemic and more precisely after George Floyd’s murder. At the heart of Martiel’s work are powerful performances that raise questions about the way various societies have treated ethnic minorities and outsiders throughout history. Sign up slots are individual to limit the number of attendees to 5 people per 20 minute interval. For the safety of everyone, social distancing and masks are required.
