RINo Art District Launches Art RiNo, a New, Week-long Arts Festival! Art RiNo Expands to Feature Art in All its Forms with Murals, Music, Installations, Arts Workshops & Special Events, plus Partnership with Westword Music Showcase.
“Over the past year, we’ve been focused on providing opportunities for underrepresented artists through our monthly RiNo Mural Program, and while we’re thrilled with the results of that program, we heard from both our artist community and our members that there was a strong desire to bring everyone together to highlight the exciting art happening here in Denver,” said Tracy Weil, Co-Founder and Executive Director of RiNo Art District. “RiNo has become an epicenter for artistic expression in all its many forms – from visual arts to theater and music – and the time was right for a new large-scale arts festival to celebrate that. Art RiNo will focus on partnerships and feature diverse local, national and international artists for a week of art, music, events, workshops and more, with programming for all ages. This is a festival for everybody.”
