What is ARTSWEEK GOLDEN?
What is ARTSWEEK GOLDEN?
ARTSWEEK GOLDEN is a week-long celebration of the arts orchestrated by Foothills Art Center in partnership with arts-oriented organizations and community partners in beautiful Golden, Colorado. Foothills Art Center traces its roots to 1968 when a group of artists formed to renovate the historic First Presbyterian Church into a thriving regional arts center. In 2018 Foothills Art Center will celebrate its 50th Anniversary while continuing to serve artists, house creative exhibits, and offer educational programming and classes for learners of all ages.
One of our main goals for ARTSWEEK GOLDEN is not only to celebrate the arts, but to also place value on the concept of creativity and critical thinking - skills that are so vitally needed in our world.
ARTSWEEK GOLDEN starts on July 16 with events during the week at various locations including Foothills Art Center. It culminates in the ARTSWEEK GOLDEN FESTIVAL on July 21 and 22 - a juried arts festival with artists from around the country. This two-day event takes place on Saturday and Sunday on the Colorado School of Mines campus adjacent to 15th Street and Foothills Art Center in Golden.
Is ARTSWEEK GOLDEN affiliated with the Golden Fine Arts Festival?
ARTSWEEK GOLDEN and the Golden Fine Arts Festival are two separate events run by different organizations. ARTSWEEK GOLDEN and its affiliated programs is orchestrated by Foothills Art Center, a Golden non-profit that has been the leader in the arts in our community since 1968.
The Golden Fine Arts Festival is managed by the Golden Chamber of Commerce.
Both offer excellent opportunities for visitors and locals to celebrate creativity and experience Golden’s thriving arts scene.
Will ARTSWEEK GOLDEN continue next year?
Absolutely! Foothills Art Center turns 50 on August 3, 2018. ARTSWEEK GOLDEN started off as a way to put a spotlight on the arts during our anniversary year, however, we've decided to make this an annual event for our community and visitors to Golden.
