Take a closer look at the “Mi Tierra” exhibit at the Denver Art Museum, 100 W. 14th Ave. Parkway, with the Logan Lecture series. A panel of experts who will discuss themes of memory, site, recuperation and reconciliation in the artwork, and the discussion will be followed by an artist reception.

Admission is $8 for volunteers, $12 for artists, $15 for DAM members and $18 nonmembers. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. and the lecture starts at 6 p.m.


It’s Tetris League night at Grandma’s House, 1710 S. Broadway, so you better stop working right now and let your hands rest.

The tournament starts at 7 p.m. and lasts until 10 p.m. if you’re good and/or in a beer drinking mood.


And don’t forget it’s closing night for “Building the Wall,” the play written by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Robert Schenkkanin in the weeks after President Donald Trump’s election and before his inauguration.

The final performance at Curious Theatre Company, 1080 Acoma St., is at 6:30 p.m. and tickets are $25.

The show will be followed by a discussion with Tina Diaz, immigration director attorney with the Justice and Mercy Legal Aid Clinic.
