What If…? Today is your last chance to catch this collaborative show on display at GroundSwell, Showpen, and Hinterland galleries. For the show, 50 Denver artists were paired with 50 Berlin artists and asked to initiate a work by responding visually to the question”What if…?”. The works by local artists will be completed in Berlin and exhibited there at Neurotitan gallery.

Sunday

Brave Miss World Israeli beauty queen Linor Abargil was abducted and raped two months before being crowned Miss World in 1998. Ten years later, Linor decided to confront her past and reach out to other survivors– the basis for this documentary, which is being shown today at 2 p.m. at Mercury Cafe. The screening is meant to bolster awareness of sexual assault victims and raise money for the 2014 edition of SlutWalk Denver, which is slated for July.
