Part of artist Matt Barton’s exhibition “Soft Something,” on view until June 29 in conjunction with Happy City Denver.

If you’re an art lover, get to Denver before June 29 to check out “Soft Something,” an immersive installation by Matt Barton, co-director of visual art at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs. The installation is “a symbiotic piece, a mutually beneficial system that is intended to allude to a greater interconnectedness,” Barton says. It features vibrating beds, aquaponics systems and materials that “blur the boundaries between gallery, greenhouse and sanctuary.” The exhibition is hosted by Happy City: Art for the People (happycitydenver.com), a six-week, citywide art intervention produced by The Denver Theatre District with the nonprofit Black Cube.
