Art lovers get ready! The fourth annual Denver Arts Week is here, and it’s time to celebrate the vibrant arts and culture scene here in the Mile High City.
The eight-day festival, Nov. 5 – 13, hosts nearly 200 events, many of them free, starting with “Know Your Arts First Friday” on Nov. 5. Dozens of art galleries will be open late in art districts around town, such as Cherry Creek North, the Santa Fe Art District, Tennyson Street Cultural District, RiNo and Belmar Block 7. Get into the scene yourself and take part in the music, art demonstrations, food and drink and even interact with the artists. Look for the special “mile high” $52.80 price tag on the some of the artwork.
“Night at the Museums” is on Saturday, offering an evening in more than a dozen of the city’s top museums. The Museum of Nature & Science, Denver Art Museum and the Molly Brown House Museum will stay open until 10 p.m. so participants can enjoy free programs, music and events. Free shuttle buses will run from one museum to another throughout the night to carry people to all the action.
The Starz Denver Film Festival runs alongside the Denver Arts Week, and features film premieres, seminars with guest actors and directors and hundreds of film screenings with red carpet events. This is part of the Art Week’s “On Stage in Denver,” which also includes special deals and discounts on performances by theater, dance, music and performing arts groups.
