Annual Arts Week, fine art festival make return to Golden

Posted

Golden got a welcome injection of color and activity last week as Foothills Arts Center's annual Arts Week took over the city.

The weeklong celebration of local artists kicked off on July 8 with an event that brought artists together to paint en plein air (outside) in the Golden Historic Park and along nearby Clear Creek. The festivities then continued with a film screening, a mural painting and a concert by the rock band Wildermiss, which features Golden native Caleb Thoemke on drums.

However, as always, the highlight of the week was the two-day Foothills Fine Arts Festival, which brought together 60 artists from as close as Golden and as far away as North Carolina and Tennessee.

After the festival took a hiatus in 2020, the artists and attendees alike seemed to agree it was great to be able to enjoy art together in-person once again.
