ArtStir Denver 2016, a Memorial Day weekend arts marketplace that will be held in the heart of downtown. 100% Colorado Artists & Designers.
ArtStir Denver 2016 Denver Pavilions is pleased to announce ArtStir Denver 2016, a Memorial Day weekend arts marketplace that will be held in the heart of Downtown Denver on Saturday, May 28, and Sunday, May 29. ArtStir is currently accepting applications from artists who would like to participate and from sponsors and community partners who would like to support the event. ArtStir Denver will exclusively showcase local and regional artists with a lively blend of art, and style that is sure to “stir up” the artist in all of us. Featured works will include paintings, sculpture, photography, illustration, textiles, furnishings, mixed media, and locally designed goods. Part of the event proceeds will benefit the Colorado chapter of AIGA, and a portion of booth sale revenues will go to community partners. The application deadline is April 24. There is no application fee. Says Samuel Schimek event curator and owner of I Heart Denver Store, “Accepted artists will gain exposure to a large weekend audience estimated at 150,000 over the two-day period. This year’s event will be twice as big as last year’s, and booth fees will be only half of the cost of last year. Last year, we had 65 vendors, and this year we’re shooting for 125. This year we also have much greater interest from sponsors and community partners. We encourage all Colorado creatives to apply.” ArtStir Denver will be held along Glenarm Place between 15th and 16th Streets Hours: Saturday, May 24: 11 am-8 pm Sunday, May 25: 11 am-6 pm * Rain or Shine!
