About Pink Hawks
Colorado’s own Xicanxbeat Orchestra, Los Pink Hawks compositions span a gamut of Afrodiasporic musical styles. As one of Denver’s longest-standing musical acts, honors include the Best of Denver Award for World Music in 2014 and the distinguished Mastermind Award in 2019 from Westword.
Their newest single, “Elote,” narrates the struggle between the elotero (working-class) and the battle for the legality of one’s humanity on stolen land through a cumbia/merengue-infused sonic-scape.
About the Clyfford Still Museum
Designed by Allied Works Architecture to display the revolutionary art of one of the 20th century’s greatest artists, the Clyfford Still Museum opened in November 2011 in Denver’s Golden Triangle Creative District. Considered one of the most important and mysterious painters of the 20th century, Clyfford Still (1904-1980) was among the first generation of abstract expressionist artists who developed a new and powerful approach to painting in the years during and immediately after World War II. The Museum’s collection represents more than 93% of the artist’s lifetime output. As the steward of Still’s art and legacy, the Museum’s mission is to preserve, exhibit, study, and foster engagement with its unique collections; generate outstanding exhibitions, scholarly research, educational and other cross-disciplinary programs that broaden the definition of a “single-artist” museum; and be a gathering place for the exploration of innovation and individual artistic endeavor. Connect with the Clyfford Still Museum on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, or at clyffordstillmuseum.org.
