The ever-changing RiNo Art District continues to grow and prosper, which means this year's seventh annual RiNo Art Safari promises more stops and diversions than ever before. The event, which began as a series of art-studio open houses, has grown to include dozens of galleries and creative spaces, as well as high-class eateries to provide pit stops.
Two years ago, RiNo's Tracy Weil said this of the event: “It’ll be almost impossible to get to all of them, of course. But our real focus is just on getting people here, with no quirky gimmicks. We’ll mostly keep it simple: We want to get people to the district and maybe sell some art.” Well, except for one tiny gimmick —the RiNo Scavenger Hunt, which proved so popular last year, they've decided to bring it back for a second go-around. One hundred orange ceramic rhino medallions, created by Jonathan Kaplan of Plinth Gallery, will be hidden throughout the district for lucky folks to find and snatch up. There's a voluntary one-per-person limit, and lucky lookers can register their finds on the RiNo website.
Drop in on RiNo -- bounded by I-70 to the north, I-25 to the west, Park Avenue West to the south, and Arapahoe Street to the east -- today from noon to 5 p.m.; for a complete listing of who's doing what where, go to rinoart.org.
