Trekking through RiNo on an Art Safari

We never ran into Dr. Livingstone last Saturday in the urban jungle, but we did see a lot of art during the district-wide RiNo Art Safari open studio artwalk event, a generous come-on to the public by artists and gallerists into River North Art District. During the space of only a couple of hours, we were able to tour an unstructured showcase of just about every echelon of Denver's art world, from the elite of the elite to all that's purely lowbrow. And, hey, we loved every minute of it, even if we only had tome to catch a fraction of what was going on in all of RiNo. It was a good fraction. Come along and see:
KEEP WESTWORD FREE... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Susan Froyd started writing for Westword as the "Thrills" editor in 1992 and never quite left the fold. These days she still freelances for the paper in addition to walking her dogs, enjoying cheap ethnic food and reading voraciously. Sometimes she writes poetry.
