Doors Open Denver
posted by: admin
Exciting news, friends! In the effort to continue the annual tradition of Doors Open Denver while prioritizing public safety, DAF is moving the event to a virtual platform for 2020. While the timing, duration and scope of the event has changed, what hasn’t changed is a focus on offering Insider Tours that provide exclusive access to – and unique information about – historic buildings, new buildings and everything in between.
How to participate in DOD 2020:
• Virtual Insider Tours – Our 2020 event will highlight 12 of Denver’s unique spaces – cultural, commercial, private, civic and more – through online Insider Tours. We will feature one tour a day, four days a week (Monday through Thursday) for three consecutive weeks. Each tour will allow time for a question-and-answer period. Tours will cost $7 for DAF members and $9 for non-members. The full list of tours will be available when registration opens August 31.
• Y/OUR Denver Photo Competition – Doors Open Denver’s annual Y/OUR Denver Photo Competition will return in 2020! Once again in partnership with the Colorado Photographic Arts Center, we will accept online entries over the three-week event timeline, and the corresponding exhibit of top entries will open to the public virtually in December.
• Audio Tours – Take advantage of our recently launched Audio Tours, which allow for getting outside to explore Denver’s architecture in a safe, socially-distanced way. On August 4, DAF released two significant audio tour journeys, Downtown Denver: A Game of City and Empire Builders and Civic Center Park: A Speerian Play. The tours, FREE and accessible at denveraudiotours.org, feature 24 locations historically significant to Denver and Colorado and highlight more than a century of Denver’s architecture and cultural history. The project was paid for in part by a History Colorado State Historical Fund grant.
Mark your calendar for Doors Open Denver 2020 – September 28 through October 15! And, remember, virtual Insider Tour registration opens August 31. See you online soon!
