We here at db art (well me, actually) love all things creative, but most especially when that creativity busts out of confining genres and definitions. There’s definitely First Friday art hopping to be had tonight, but I’m leaning toward some creative film and design events that cross disciplines to stir your brain.
CAFE NUBA FILM FESTIVAL | Starz FilmCenter
LOVE this idea by Cafe Nuba. Spoken word with music and spoken-word-themed indie films. Just go. In fact, you can meet me there tonight.

OPENING RECEPTION | Indy Ink
Indy Ink’s got your whole evening planned. Ride your bike to Indy Ink for Chris Huth’s first solo show in four years, sponsored by PBR and KGNU who will be broadcasting from inside the store. Then ride the Loops Tour de Art (shouldn’t it be Tour d’Art?). Finish at Beta (free entry if you’re on your bike) for the after party and live painting by Newspeak. See Xrocksthespot for after party details.

DIGITAL SCANDINAVIA | RedLine
This summer, students from the College of Arts and Media and the College of Architecture and Planning undertook a large research project exploring Scandinavian art and design. Studying in Denver, Copenhagen, Denmark and Bergen, Norway, multi-disciplinary teams researched the nature of design practice, from architecture and urban planning to virtual media and cultural institutions. Opening tonight are the design projects that directly embody their research.
