Foothills Art Center celebrates 50th with 168 hours of art

ARTSWEEK GOLDEN takes place July 16-22

Posted

From aerialists to quilts, a new week-long event in Golden will feature a variety of art for all to enjoy.

ARTSWEEK GOLDEN takes place July 16-22 at various in-and-outdoor venues. It is being put on by Foothills Art Center in partnership with other arts-oriented organizations and community partners.

The public will be able to experience art in many different forms. Highlights include street art, sculpture walks, traditional paintings, vibrant murals. The culminating event will be a juried art festival featuring 100 national artist booths on July 21 and 22 on the Colorado School of Mines campus adjacent to 15th Street and Foothills Art Center in Golden.

“This year marks the 50th anniversary of Foothills Art Center,” said Hassan Najjar, the executive director of Foothills Art Center, in a press release, “and a new era for art in Golden.”

Along with Foothills Art Center, ARTSWEEK GOLDEN will feature organizations such as Miner’s Alley Playhouse, the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum and Virtuosity Dance Centre — and not to mention Golden’s art galleries and merchants.

“The arts scene in Golden has never been stronger or more varied,” Najjar said. “We are banding together for 168 hours of art in Golden to showcase just how strong the Golden art scene really is.”
