Ignite!Nite, sponsored by the Sturm Family Foundation, pairs interesting ideas with interesting people in a new after-hours experience. Bring a friend and join us for a unique exploration of History Colorado’s stories including our newest exhibition, Backstory. Unlock your inner history geek with a blend of live music, theater performances, conversation, artist and cooking demonstrations, DIY crafts and exhibition tours. Toss in a cash bar, tasty grub and a whole lot of Colorado spirit and you’ve got a history museum adventure!

Every story deserves a good title—especially stories that stand the test of time. Explore the nuances of titles using giant word tiles with professional writers from Lighthouse Writers Workshop and art historians from the American Museum of Western Art. Rewrite the title and captions of iconic works of art! You’ll also get a chance to enjoy the stories in the stars in a portable dome from the Fiske Planetarium.
