Celebrate the unveiling of Anythink’s latest collaborative public art installation, “The Singing Tree,” on Saturday, April 27, from 1-3 pm. Enjoy food, art and music while getting an up-close look at this outdoor installation that uses light and sound to create an interactive experience. Created by Denver-based Alt Ethos, “The Singing Tree” operates as a live instrument for onlookers to play and can be programmed to include a variety of different sounds and effects. At the unveiling, attendees will have the opportunity to be a part of The Singing Tree Orchestra by participating in a live group performance led by musician Adam Green. Green will play “The Singing Tree” and conduct participants to join in song – no previous music experience needed.

 The event is free and open to the public. All ages and families welcome. Refreshments will be served.  

"The Singing Tree” is the latest addition to Anythink’s This is Who We Are project, which partners community members with local artists to create public art pieces that represent the fabric of the community. “The Singing Tree” will honor former Anythink Board of Trustees President Ray Coffey and is made possible through the support of the Anythink Foundation.

Gather for the opening reception of “Roots/Raíces,” an exploration of the agricultural roots of Latin America through art and artifacts. Enjoy music and food while taking in this exhibition curated by Museo de las Americas specially for Anythink. Following the reception, kids in grades kindergarten through 6 are invited to experience the magic of oral tradition with The Legend of the Three Sisters. This engaging legend teaches the importance of Native American horticulture traditions and planting methodology, and participants will create corn-husk dolls. Events are free and open to the public. No registration required. "Roots/Raíces" will be on display at Anythink Commerce City through May 1, 2019. 

Acompáñanos en la inauguración de “Roots/Raíces” con música, comida y representantes del Museo de las Américas. Continúa la celebración con un programa especial de seguimiento exclusivo para niños. De las 3:00 a las 4:00 de la tarde, los alumnos desde kindergarten hasta sexto grado están invitados a experimentar la magia de la tradición oral con “The Legend of the Three Sisters” (La Leyenda de las Tres Hermanas). Esta atractiva leyenda enseña la importancia de las tradiciones de la horticultura de los nativos americanos y la metodología de plantación, y los participantes ayudarán a crear una muñeca de mazorca de maíz. Todos los eventos son gratuitos y están abiertos al público.
