Counterpath is excited to host a small exhibition space at City Park Jazz, Sundays through the summer in 2016. The Counterpath canopy tent will feature a different installation and/or performance piece each week. We’ll also feature a brand new short Counterpath print publication each week. We’ll close the season with a cookout at Counterpath (7935 East 14th Ave. in Denver) on August 14.
City Park Jazz (cityparkjazz.org), now in its 30th season, produces 10 free jazz concerts each summer in the crown jewel of Denver’s parks, City Park. Jazz, blues, and salsa, the predominant forms of music presented at the concerts, have broad appeal with a diverse, urban community. City Park Jazz performances, with Counterpath installations/performances and publications, include:
July 10, Heavy Heavies
Tent: Moe Gram, ChelseaLyn Graeber, and Sadie Young, live painting
Publication: Joey Yearous-Algozin’s Utopia
July 31, Imagine, featuring Melvin Seals (Jerry Garcia Band), Ray White (Frank Zappa), Damon Wood (James Brown), & Friends

Publication: Locked Out: Voices from America’s Second Prison, edited by Jesse Wiese
August 14, starting at 6 p.m., closing party at Counterpath, 7935 East 14th Avenue, Denver
All events are rain or shine. City Park Jazz concerts are located at the bandstand by the Pavilion on Ferril Lake in Denver’s City Park, just east of Downtown at Colorado Boulevard and 17th Avenue.
Free parking is available throughout the park—please be a good neighbor and avoid parking on side-streets around the park. Or better yet, ride your bike and enjoy free bike parking monitored by City Park Jazz volunteers at the Bike Corral in the Pavilion from 5:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
