An exploration of artistry and culture, the Cherry Creek Arts Festival in Denver, Colorado hosted another world-class fair this past July fourth weekend.
Curated by CherryArts, the streets of Denver's Cherry Creek North neighborhood were swarmed by art-enthusiasts for an afternoon in the summer sun accompanied by awe-worthy art on display. From sculptures to photography, paintings to clothing, wood whittling to jewelry welding, the display this year was one of the most talented the fest has ever seen.
Not only could fest-goers purchase the art from the featured 265 local and global artists, but also got to create their own art at CCAF’s Artivity Avenue. The immersive art experience offered painting and crafts for the family as part of the initiative to inspire future creatives and their art education.
