Alumnae Special Event: Chihuly Exhibit at the Denver Botanic Gardens
5:30 – 6:30 Gather at the Hive Garden Bistro
6:30 p.m. Tour the Gardens
Price: $13/person. Open to all alumnae and their guests.
Join with other SMA alumnae to visit the Chihuly Exhibition at the Denver Botanic Gardens. Dale Chihuly is a celebrated American artist and is credited with revolutionizing the Studio Glass movement and elevating the perception of the glass medium from the realm of craft to fine art. He is renowned for ambitious architectural installations around the world, in historic cities, museums and gardens. This is the first major outdoor Chihuly exhibition in the Rocky Mountain Region. Chihuly’s sculptures add bold colors and dramatic beauty to the Garden’s 24-acre urban oasis.
We will meet at the Hive Garden Bistro from 5:30 – 6:30 p.m. Food and beverage can be purchased at the café or guests are welcome to bring their own (wine and beer can be brought into the Gardens as long as the bottles are sealed.) We will do a self-guided tour of the gardens and exhibition starting at 6:30 p.m. The Garden closes at 9:00 p.m.
Tickets can be picked up in the Advancement Office at St. Mary’s Academy on Monday-Friday, 9:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. from August 11 – September 10. If these dates and times do not work, please contact Molly del Monte at (303) 762-8300 ext. 283 to arrange an alternate pick-up. You will have to have your ticket to enter the Gardens in order to meet the alumnae group at the Hive Garden Bistro.

Young Alumnae Luncheon
11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
High School Forum
Come back to SMA to reconnect with your former classmates and teachers. Open to our Young Alumnae from the classes of 2010-2014. Lunch will be provided.
During a recent open house, I returned to St. Mary’s Academy and talked with two articulate, enthusiastic high school students who reminded me how much I treasure my SMA education. I am grateful to my teachers and classmates who embodied the values of caring, compassion and respect which have served as the guidepost for so many of my life’s decisions.
