The summer 2012 art festival season kicked off in grand fashion with the start of the 14th Annual Downtown Denver Arts Festival at the Denver Pavilions today. Painters, sculptors, photographers, jewelry makers and wood carvers all displayed their very best work along the intersection of Glenarm and 16th. St under a clear blue sky. The event showcases over 100 of Colorado’s best artists along with a select group of artists from out of state. This years festival runs over Memorial Day weekend from the 25th to the 28th. With over 150,000 visitors expected to attend this year’s four day event last years total of $500,000 in art sales should easily be eclipsed. If you are a lover of all types of art than this free event, one of the biggest downtown events of the summer, is certainly not to be missed!
