A Colorado summer isn’t complete without outdoor concerts and live music. This Pairing, created by Adam Lancaster, is designed to bring even more fresh music your way. Given the theme “color,” Adam chose songs to match artworks in the DAM collections. So put your headphones on, jam out and discover some new bands—links to each song are below!

About Adam’s Pairing: Over the years I’ve learned that a person’s creativity is best when it’s immediate and unadulterated by internal or external influences. That being said, for this Pairing, I went with my first reaction to each artwork. Whether is was an emotion, a color or something ironic that struck me right away, that’s what I went with.
