Cósmico Americas will feature Jaguara, a spectacular light and sound show and the artistic centerpiece of the Festival. Jaguara is the artistic vision of Sonic Design Studio, a digital design company based in Bogotá, Colombia. Strikingly beautiful and humbling, Jaguara stands as a platform to bring attention to the deforestation and increasing endangerment of the jaguar habitat in North and South America.
On Saturday, Sept. 28 from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m., the Biennial of the Americas 2019 Festival celebrates with its final event, Cósmico Americas, a free, family-friendly celebration of the arts and culture of the Americas in Civic Center Park.
“We are thrilled to be presenting a number of arts and culture experiences as part of the Biennial of the Americas 2019 Festival,” said Erin Trapp, executive director and CEO of Biennial of the Americas. “Jaguara will be the cultural centerpiece for the Festival and is an artistic embodiment of how art, technology and education can create collaborative bridges across the Americas and throughout the world. The Festival will culminate on September 28 with the final Jaguara light show at Cósmico Americas.”
Cósmico Americas includes musical performances featuring Colombian band Systema Solar and Denver-based bands Kiltro and Don Chicacharron, culinary delights featuring Denver’s best Latin American food trucks, and curated refreshments and cosmic cocktails.
The Biennial of the Americas Festival, taking place Sept. 25 through Sept. 28, is an international event of ideas, art and culture that assembles dynamic leaders to identify unique opportunities and solutions to shared challenges across the Americas. The 2019 theme, “Empathy in Action,” will showcase the people and ideas across North and South America that are moving beyond divisions to build solutions to important issues.
