Lumonics is the prolific body of work of 94 year old Dorothy Tanner and her late husband Mel. Their collection spans more than 50 years and Dorothy continues to create new pieces to this day.
The term Lumonics comes from the blending of the words Light and Harmonics and it was coined to represent the blending of light with other media such as sound, water, different aromas, and textures. Here are 2 videos that can help illustrate some of their work. The video on vimeo also gives a great summary of their story.

In 1909, the cornerstone of the McNichols Civic Center Building was laid. It set the foundation for the then Carnegie Library that would become a center of learning in Civic Center Park. That tradition continues as Denver Arts & Venues re-opened the building in 2012 as a contemporary hub for arts and culture for the people of Denver. This stunning Greek Revival building with it classic Corinthian columns and iconic colonnade across its front, offers new experiences in a classic space.
