First Friday Art Walks continue in Denver’s Art District on Santa Fe for 2020. Year-round, rain or shine, join them on First Fridays for late-night viewing of artwork at 100+ art galleries, artists’ studios, and creative businesses. For full info on First Friday, visit: www.denversartdistrict.org/first-friday. The heart of the art walk is between 7th and 10th Avenues on Santa Fe Drive, with more galleries scattered nearby. To get here, take the Light Rail to 10th and Osage or opt for a ride share, as parking is difficult. Support local artists and attend the Art Walk every First Friday from 5:30-9:30 p.m.
