You have to look for the schedule of events to really get the best time to go. I typically watch Westword. There are over 60 galleries and some great restaurants. The first Friday of every month they have an Art Walk that allows you to preview and look at the most galleries.

We like to visit at least once in the summer. There are so many unique places to look at. Even people watching is fun here.

The Art District on Santa Fe is my new favorite place in Denver. Spanning a number of blocks on Santa Fe, with 8th arguably the midpoint, the district is full of colorful, architecturally interesting buildings hosting a wide variety of artists working in many different media. Many galleries are also studios and it's possible to shop or browse while viewing... More

Here is a great way to see a lot of fun art and be entertained at the same time. The first Friday each month four blocks Santa Fe Drive, just south and west of downtown Denver, is closed to vehicular traffic and becomes an art fest. Dozens of art galleries are open and food trucks abound. It is a very... More

In nice weather (whatever that might mean to you), it's pleasant to browse some of the (very many) galleries in this district. As noted by previous reviewers, First Friday offers one opportunity - when many of the galleries are especially prepared for "serial browsers". We went one evening, when a neighbor was one of the participants in a show at... More

Whenever I'm in Denver I like to visit the artists on Santa Fe. Usually I time my visit around one of their "First Friday" events. You will encounter art of all types and artists at all levels as you tour through the galleries and spaces. From an old Italian gentleman creating oil cityscapes that sell for a few hundred bucks;...

It's a fun thing to do on a Friday night. Walk thru some of the small galleries then stop and have a drink and appetizer nearby. Park once and walk everywhere.

"First Fridays" (see: http://www.artdistrictonsantafe.com/events/firstfriday) are packed, but even on a quiet weekend afternoon, the arts district on Santa Fe offers more than enough original art, and nice places for coffee etc, to make for a great afternoon. Lots of original and unusual art, including relatively affordable ceramics, glass, and prints, as well as moderate to more expensive fine arts.
