When I lived in Kansas City, the first Friday of every month was quite the event for artists in the Crossroads area downtown. Artists open their studios and celebrate the accomplishments and relationships with others. I remember it from 2 or 3 years ago and so much has changed that I am sure it is even better now. I really did believe this was something uniquely Kansas City. Well, it turns out that several cities have First Fridays; including Denver, CO. You can start in the Santa Fe Drive area at 5:30 for a walking tour of one of Denver's oldest neighborhoods. Then, begin your tour of galleries of over 30 participating artist. Make it a night and support artists in your local city!!
