What’s on your agenda in the coming year?
With my longtime associates Marc Billard, Barbara Ungar and Barry Raphael, we are creating an art installation at The Scarlet, which is a new music venue and community center in a former casino on Main Street. We are in the process of completing the downstairs Lumonics Mind Spa, which includes light sculptures, a pyramid and video. The other three floors are also a work in progress. One goal is for the Lumonics Mind Spa to be open daily for relaxation and meditation. The Scarlet is part of the 7 Stars Oneness Center, founded by Dr. Jomar Suarez, MD, a practicing psychiatrist in Colorado. He is especially interested in the therapeutic potential of this art-form for mental-health treatments. We plan to work closely with him to develop a treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder, focusing at first on veterans. The project is titled Free PTSD Treatment for Veterans, and will be listed soon on the GoFundMe site. We will also have info about this on the Lumonics website.
Unique music venue finds home in former casino
One of Colorado’s most distinctive indoor music venues opened last year in a former casino in Central City. The Scarlet, a multi-purpose events center, has been hosting concerts featuring holistic healers in the former Scarlet’s Casino at the southern end of Main Street since last September with considerable success and acclaim. Almost everything about the new room and its management team, sets it apart from other offerings across the Front Range.
