The Art Safari and Second Saturday collide in RiNo this weekend

It's no accident that Saturday's art-district-wide RiNo Art Safari open studio event coincides with RiNo's fledging monthy Second Saturday event; the two were tailor-made for each other, and the heart of the Second Saturday movement, the large art-studio enclaves Wazee Union and Walnut Workshop, has a lot to do with that. Between the two locations, dozens of artists, photographers, designers, screen-printers and others open their studios to the public, offering a glimpse into the lives and work of Denver's hidden up-and-coming art scenesters.

Here's a taste of the variety you'll see just at Wazee Union and Walnut Workshop, 3501 Wazee Street and 3525 Walnut Street:
