303 isn’t exactly a family-friendly publication. So it’s not really worth mentioning that Denver visual artist Cassandra Lillard and her old man did a kids book together called What Do You See Under the Sea? It’s also not worth mentioning that said tome involves removable stickers of marine animal body parts. Instead of Mr. Potato Head, think Mr. Sea Cucumber Head—only in 2-D. What is worth mentioning is that Lillard has an art opening happening this Thursday at Andrew Clark’s Wash Park photography gallery. Clark tapped Lillard to kick off Ephemera, his third Thursday monthly event. According to Clark, Ephemera is a “miniaturized and modern version of the grand artists’ salons of 1800s Paris; an elegant party hosted only for the discerning few, where the new, the unusual, the daring and the surprising will always be found.” Dig the pixel-inspired jpeg to the left? Be there.

George Peele enjoys strapping on height enhancers and aurally ambushing strangers. He is Music Features Editor for 303’s print edition. Keep your eyes peeled for November interviews with Denver troubadour Nathaniel Rateliff and WaterCourse/City O’ City big (soy) cheese Dan Landes.
