The Cherry Creek Arts Festival is celebrating its 20th year of first-rate, visual, culinary, and performance arts this weekend. This free event features a cultural pavilion, Artivity Avenue, demonstration chefs, fitness instructors and much more! Shop hardy this weekend! Spending money in Denver generates much needed revenue that helps to fund the library!
If art crime thrills you, you might be interested in the book list Forgers, Filchers and Fakes.
When in the main library, be sure to visit the Photography of Roger Whitacre Exhibit, the Hazlo Ahora Photography Exhibit and the wonderful art work always on display in the Western History and Genealogy Department.
The library would love to see your art and know which books you found helpful in creating it! I Made It With the Library displays the creativity and artistry alive in Denver today!
