The 2014 Denver Arts Week Highlights
Know Your Arts First Friday: Nov. 7, 2014
First Fridays get pretty wild in Denver, and Friday, Nov. 7, falls during arts week — so streets will buzz with enthusiastic gallery-goers hopping to and fro among galleries with new and noteworthy collections. Mingle with the artists and curators to get the behind-the-scenes story while touring eclectic Denver art districts like RiNo, ArtDistrict on Sante Fe and Belmar Block 7.
Saturday Night at the Museums: Nov. 8, 2014
Visiting Denver’s premier museums can’t get easier than this. With complimentary shuttle service from museum to museum, free admission and extended hours, the only thing you need to bring is yourself. Keeping doors open until 10pm, staple museums like the Denver Art Museum, the Children's Museum of Denver and Denver Museum of Nature & Science loosen up their ties with special events, and like we said, free admission and transportation!
Check the Denver Arts Week site for more information as it becomes available.
In addition to museums and galleries offering free, two-for-one or other discounted admission, many Denver hotels also offer special rates for the week. Learn about accommodation, museum, event and food deals at the Denver Arts Week website.
