Old Colorado City's First Friday ArtWalk starts 9th year April 4Offering 15 galleries for its free monthly events this year, the Old Colorado City ArtWalk will kick off its ninth season Friday, April 4.
The free, self-guided tour is scheduled monthly from 5 to 8 p.m. between April and December. Purple ArtWalk flags outside denote the participating galleries/businesses.
The Open Kitchen, a recently opened restaurant displaying paintings on its walls, is the first Old Colorado City ArtWalk participant that's well outside the Historic District. It's located where the Dutch Mill used to be at the corner of Colorado Avenue and Walnut Street, just west of I-25. The business owners “really wanted to help us,” Wolff said. “We'll make sure to send people down there.”
Also new (and therefore new to the ArtWalk) are the Chavez Gallery, owned by local artist Liese Chavez and featuring her paintings; and the Colorado Creative Co-Op, which is a local artists cooperative, similar to Arati, Wolff said.
