Event Date: May 10, 2018
Denver East High School presents the 7th Annual Arts Walk Thursday, May 10, 2018 from 5:30pm-8:00pm at 1600 City Park Esplanade and seven other locations along East Colfax. Through partnerships with local Colfax businesses and organizations, the public will enjoy student performing and visual art in diverse settings. This event is free and open to the public. This event celebrates the power of community collaboration and student art expressed through Dance, Drama, Instrumental, Speech, two- and three-dimensional Visual art, Vocal, and Writing. This year’s route on Colfax includes 14 utility boxes featuring student art developed in collaboration with the Denver Vision Zero Coalition and local artist Patrick Milbery. The utility box art is intended to raise awareness of Vision Zero and Denver’s goal of eliminating traffic fatalities. Each box features the story of a Denver resident impacted by a traffic crash. Denver East High School tours, including the historic library and clock tower museum, will operate from 5:45pm-7:05pm. A special finale integrating Native American traditional dance, Van Gogh live paint dance, choral performances, and the unveiling of a visual arts legacy project will close out the event.
