1. Explore the Denver Art Scene
Denver’s streets have become more colorful thanks to new works by street artists in the River North Art District

The Art District on Santa Fe is one of Colorado's designated Creative Districts. With more than 30 galleries, the neighborhood boasts the largest concentration of art galleries in Colorado. Meanwhile, the art in both districts extends beyond the gallery walls--murals decorate alleys and buildings around almost every corner.
