Stanley Arts Festival's Successful Weekend

Over 20,000 art enthusiasts gathered at Stanley Marketplace for the event's most impressive year yet

Denver's CherryArts brought its expertise from the long-running Cherry Creek Arts Festival east to Stapleton for the 5th annual Stanley Arts Festival. Transforming the marketplace into an open-air gallery, the free event packed in 20,100 art enthusiasts to explore local and national artistry.

From September 7-8, 2019, guests perused the works of 90 unique, hand-selected artists, enjoyed live music and participated in family-friend activities like face painting and dancing.

13 different categories of art were showcased, like ceramics, photography, painting, digital art and drawing. Attendees could also purchase the art and chat with the creators of the pieces to understand vision, inspiration and technique. 

This year CherryArts partnered with the Museum of Outdoor Arts to feature large-scale inflatable sculpture installations, “Creatura Psychedelica” by Bill Kennedy of San Francisco.

A portion of the proceeds from the Stanley Arts Festival supports CherryArts’ 501c3 mission to provide access to art experiences and support arts education in Colorado.
