The Mizel Museum will stay open late on Thursday nights, now through Labor Day, for free admission to its permanent exhibit, 4,000 Year Road Trip: Gathering Sparks, an interactive journey through art, artifacts and digital media that narrates and illuminates Jewish history and culture.

4,000 Year Road Trip: Gathering Sparks, launched in February 2011, opened a new era for the 30-year-old Denver institution, reshaping and reinvigorating the museum on a local level and on the national Jewish museum scene. During his opening night remarks, Mayor Vidal referred to the museum as “Denver’s newest Jewish cultural gem and a delightful enhancement to the neighborhood south of Alameda Ave. and west of Monaco Street.”
“The exhibit tells a complex story through many types of artistic expression,” said Curator Georgina Kolber. “People from all walks of life can connect with it through the beauty of the exhibit itself and the many underlying themes that run through the installations.”
