The 2017 Denver Arts Week kicks off November 3 as a celebration of all things art in the Mile High City! This nine-day event features over 300 events at a wide variety of art galleries, museums, theaters, and concert halls, many of which are offering deep discounts for Arts Week. Whether you are taking Denver Arts Week as an opportunity to discover new exhibits and museums, or visit your favorite galleries and displays, Denver Arts Week has something for everyone.
Denver Arts Week will kick off with Know Your Arts First Friday. These walks, held in six different art districts, afford a unique and fun opportunity to explore Denver’s creative neighborhoods, meet local artists, and find original artwork for your home or office starting at $52.80! From downtown to Lakewood, each neighborhood offers a fun and unique experience that patrons of all ages can enjoy.
From there, Denver Arts Week offers a myriad of unique events and opportunities for Denver area residents to engage with the city’s booming cultural scene. On November 4, fifteen museums around the city will participate in the FREE Night at the Museum program by offering extended hours, remaining open until 10 PM. A free shuttle will begin at 5 PM and will connect twelve of these museums.
Throughout the rest of the week various events will be offered to spotlight the diverse arts and culture scene in the Mile High City. Denver’s On Stage will provide young and old a chance to experience drama, comedy, dance, music, and more—many with discounted prices. Hidden Gems will afford the opportunity to go behind the scenes of the local art world, with opportunities to meet local artists, participate in creative workshops, and explore art districts you’ve never seen before. And, of course, many family-friendly activities will be offered to stimulate young minds and create a lifelong love of the arts among the next generation.
