Tour d'Art

Downtown Littleton is so quaint and picturesque: perfect for a slow stroll on a beautiful summer evening. And what better time to take that stroll than during the Littleton Summer Art Walk Series, a monthly juried arts-and-crafts fair with additional goodies to supplement those wares?

The series, which runs in conjunction with the Get Wild on Littleton block party and the Taste of Southwest Metro celebration, opens today from 5 to 10 p.m. Featured artwork includes that of potter Alissa Gourley, glass-worker Deanna Hood, sculptor Fred Lunger and one-of-a-kind jeweler Carrie Schafer. Music will complement the beautiful works, and kids will have their own Art Adventure tent, where they can craft their own masterpieces. A sidewalk chalk contest will further beautify the atmosphere. The Summer Art Walk takes place on Main Street through September on the second Saturday of each month. Call 303-730-8521 or visit www.littletonartwalk.org for information.
