In 2010, the festival kicked off with Know Your Arts First Friday, a special Arts Week version of the city’s regular monthly First Friday Art Walks. Galleries were open late and exhibits poured out into the sidewalks. Guests got to see local, national and international artwork. The Art District on Santa Fe showcased artists from Denver schools, while the galleries of Downtown Denver opened up some of the city’s most prized artistic collections. In Golden Triangle Museum District, the Denver Public Library hosted its own series of 100 paintings by Denver artists. The Navajo Street Art District was full of cultural showcases like a special Day of the Dead exhibit. Buy airline tickets for this fun-filled week and you’ll get to explore some of America’s hottest art districts.
One of the annual favorites for both city locals and visitors arriving on flights to Denver is the Night at the Museums. For one night a year, as many as fifteen museums open their doors to the public for free. In 2010, these museums included the Museum of Contemporary Art Denver, the Children’s Museum of Denver, the Black American West Museum, and the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. The Denver Botanic Gardens hosted an intriguing Moore by Moonlight event in its outdoor sculpture garden. Depending where you go, these museum savings could easily end up being worth your inexpensive flight tickets. The performing arts had their own time to shine during the week-long Denver On Stage specials. From tiny neighborhood theaters to the Denver Performing Arts Complex, many arts venues offered discount performances by groups like the Aurora Symphony Orchestra, Denver Brass, Bovine Metropolis Theater, and the Lighthouse Writers Workshop. There were also behind the scenes events so fans could meet performers or learn about the production process for their favorite performances. To check out all the art in style, guests could buy a ride around the arts districts in a 1936 vintage Rolls Royce. Denver Arts Week isn’t just to look at art, of course. In 2010, many participating venues offered local art works on sale for a set price of $52.80.
