We began in the Golden Triangle Museum District near Denver’s Fine Art Museum, parking in the Cultural Complex Garage at 12th Avenue & Broadway, an easy base for walking around to visit some nearby galleries, including:
The Camera Obscura GalleryAfter a glass of wine, we boarded our bus and headed for the Art District on Santa Fe. More than 50 galleries, shops, and restaurants span several blocks in the heart of one of Denver’s oldest, predominantly Latino communities. If you can’t make it there during Denver Arts Week, explore the area during the holidays when many of the galleries light the walkways with traditional luminaries—it’s a great area to uncover special gifts!
Michelle Mosko Fine Art
William Havu Gallery
Walker Fine Art, which will feature a panel discussion DADASPEAK: Shutter Shift, dedicated to changing technologies in photography, Nov. 11.
Jumping back on our bus, we headed for the River North Art District (RiNo), where more than 60 artists live and work in an area of industrial buildings
What an evening! And we didn’t even scratch the surface of all that Denver has to offer when it comes to fine art. In many ways, the urban scene in this terrific city is a collection of villages, communities in which people live and work and surround themselves with highly developed cultural events and, at its heart, world-class theater, opera, and symphony—enough to keep any culture vulture such as me busy every day of the year! If you are local, get out there this week. If you live elsewhere—it’s time to visit this exciting City on the verge of the incomparable Rocky Mountains.
