Gathering Sparks Call to Artists

Artists are invited to participate in the Mizel Museum’s 2nd annual Gathering Sparks program on Sunday, November 11. This year we draw upon the collaborative synergy of visual arts and music. An art exhibition and sale, plus a live music and photography mash-up by photographer Zion Ozeri and local musicians, together celebrate the light of the winter season.
This multi-faceted program will be held at Rodef Shalom, 450 S. Kearney St., Denver, right next to the Mizel Museum, and the day looks like this:

11:30am — Artists arrive to set up your space (we will provide a 6’ table)
1:00–4:30pm — Art Exhibition & sale with light hors d’oeuvres
4:30–5:30pm — Zion Ozeri and live music performance
5:30–6:00pm — Art sale continues
6:00pm — Art sale closes, artists pack up
