Helikon is pleased to host Kayla Marque with KDUBBS in August for our Summer Music Series!
Friday, August 10. Doors at 6, show at 7:30.
The gallery space will open up for three performances in June, July and August during three different exhibitions on view, highlighting local musicians, encouraging a diverse use of art spaces, and tapping into Denver’s thriving audiences of art-lovers and music-lovers alike. In addition to the exhibitions on view in the main gallery and annex gallery, the Summer Music Series runs in conjunction with a music-themed exhibition on view in the retail space called ‘Audio/Visual.’ Chosen for their overlapping interests in visual art and music, the artists featured in ‘Audio/Visual’ draw further connections between the sounds and images that inspire a diverse creative community.
