Several areas in the city of Denver feature a concentration of art galleries. The Art District on Santa Fe is one of the most extensive, featuring over 40 different galleries, restaurants, and shops -- enough to keep an art lover busy all day long. Special events here include the First Friday Art Walk, held on the first Friday of each month. During this event, galleries open their doors to the public. The third Friday of every month is also a special event. Called Collector's Night, it is intended for buyers more serious about purchasing. One of the most notable galleries in this district is the Museo de las Americas, which features exhibits of Hispanic art from all across Central and South America.
The Golden Triangle Museum District has more than 50 fine art studios, specialty stores, and art galleries. It also features eight separate museums, including the Denver Art Museum and the Kirkland Museum of Fine and Decorative Art. Here too, First Fridays come with special events; from five to nine in the evening, free art shuttles allow visitors to easily explore the various galleries and museums in the area.
North of downtown is a district called RiNo, which stands for the River North Art District. This is one of the most dynamic of the art districts, having become popular for up-and-coming artists in recent years. On First Fridays here, galleries stay open late to welcome the crowds. Denver real estate is available in all of these diverse art districts.
