SEGD Denver History Colorado Tour

Join SEGD Denver, Tryba Architects and History Colorado for a guided tour of History Colorado's current exhibit ZOOM IN.

When: 12/11/19 at 5:30 pm
Cost: $15 - non members, $10 - members (promo code sent via email)
This exhibition has 100 stories to tell. Zoom in on 100 powerful artifacts to see how Colorado became Colorado. Culled from the vast collections of History Colorado, every object on view had a role in shaping our state—from the age of the Paleoindians to Jack Swigert’s Apollo 13 flight suit and beyond.

You could never distill Colorado’s rich history into only 100 objects. But the ones we’ve selected, both ordinary and extraordinary, combine into a telling mosaic of the past—and, just maybe, a glimpse into our future.
 Thank you to our event sponsors History Colorado and Tryba Architects for making this possible and thank you to our chapter sponsor Archetype, for supporting SEGD Denver throughout 2019. 

SEGD Denver Golden Hour Tour of Denver Botanic Gardens

SEGD Denver hosted a late-summer tour of the Denver Botanic Gardens with iZone imaging on a beautiful, golden hour evening recently. Our friends at the Denver Botanic Gardens guided us through the lush foliage to learn about what goes into making such a unique place. The tour guides discussed approaches to signage, wayfinding, public art, horticulture and Colorado's climate that go into the placemaking efforts that take place at the gardens throughout the year.

The tour was especially insightful, as we had representatives from iZone imaging - our event sponsor - who have collaborated closely with the gardens and could shed light on exterior grade products like their custom, high-pressure laminate. 

After the tour everyone convened to DC Pie Co. on nearby Colfax Ave. for networking, happy hour and snacks, courtesy of iZone.

The CRUSH WALLS festival is a unique event in Denver that brings together artists from across the globe to create the murals that light up the RiNo neighborhood.  

At the beginning of September, the SEGD Denver chapter teamed up with the RiNo GID and the North Denver Cornerstone Collaborative to bring the community together to paint a mural at the intersection of 39thand Wynkoop. It was the perfect Denver Sunday, with the sun shining, and we had an amazing turnout of volunteers that collaborated to bring the vision of artist Anthony Garcia to life. 

Thank you so much to everyone that showed up for the event! We look forward to doing this again in the future!

Join SEGD Denver and our friends at iZone Imaging and the Denver Botanic Gardens for a guided tour discussing placemaking, exhibits and materials. Staff from the Botanic Gardens will discuss the convergence of signage, wayfinding, art, education and plants on a guided walking tour.

Event attendees will convene nearby for happy hour after the event, sponsored by our friends at iZone Imaging.
