The Scouted Calendar / February and March 2015


While the weather might try to slow us down, our social calendar for the next couple of months indicates that we’ll be doing anything but staying at home; there are simply too many opportunities to celebrate the culture, cuisine, and other aspects of our cities that make them so wonderful. To help us manage our agendas, we asked our editors to share some of their favorite upcoming events. From film festivals to art openings to five days dedicated to food and wine, here’s a quick guide to what’s going on in some of our TSG cities in the next few weeks:


For those who like to look chic on and off the slopes, Aspen International Fashion Week, which takes place from March 13 – 16, is not to be missed. This four-day event offers a hefty dose of style set against a stunning mountain backdrop, plus accompanying parties fit for the fashion set. {For local recommendations, browse The Scout Guide Aspen.}

Connoisseurs of culture have it made in the Mile-high city with a nationally acclaimed exhibit at Museum of Contemporary Art Denver showcasing the work of founding member of DEVO Mark Mothersbaugh in Mark Mothersbaugh: Myopia. The artist’s sculptures, photographs, drawings, and other works are featured throughout the museum through April 12. Meanwhile, The Denver Museum of Art is putting on a dazzling display with Brilliant: Cartier in the 20th Century, a show featuring the house’s jewelry, timepieces, and objet created from 1900 to 1975.
