1. See the Restless Creature — The 2014 Vail International Dance Festival continues at the Vilar Performing Arts Center tonight at 6:30 p.m. with a collection of ballets created specially for celebrated ballerina Wendy Whelan. The project began in Vail in 2012 with the pairing of Whelan and Brian Brooks in a new duet for NOW: Premieres. That acclaimed collaboration led to Whelan commissioning three more dynamic choreographers to join her in creating a full evening entitled Restless Creature. Joining Whelan in this unique collaborative performance are Kyle Abraham (The Serpent and the Smoke); Joshua Beamish (Waltz Epoca); Brian Brooks (First Fall) and Alejandro Cerrudo (Ego Et Tu).

2. Enjoy an art walk through Vail Village — Today’s free art walk meets at 11 a.m. in the Vail Village Welcome Center on the top level of the parking structure for an hour-long guided tour of Vail Village and the public art collection. After an introduction to the Colorado Ski & Snowboard Museum, the tour winds its way through the village with discussions of the history of the Vail Valley, the founding of Vail Mountain, the master planning of the village and the importance of site-specific art.
