Denver, CO, August 18, 2020  –  This summer dance, music and visual arts take to the streets of metro Denver.  K Contemporary Gallery and Athena Project have partnered to bring visual and performing artists to the city’s eleven districts. On Thursday, August 27th between 4:00 and 8:00 p.m. a mobile group of artists will travel a predetermined route, pausing along the way to invite communities to experience vibrant local artists without having to leave their neighborhoods.  These offerings provide a safe opportunity to view art during the time of Covid-19 and are accessible from windows, yards and patios. The routes will include neighborhoods, business districts and locations where all can commune safely to celebrate arts & culture.

The #ArtFindsUs featured artists and routes will be published at www.ArtFindsUs.org.

*At Athena Project, we believe that “women” means many things and can be a complicated term. We recognize that the term “women” does not automatically include all aspects of the gender spectrum.  We want to create a safer space for expression and growth for all women, trans, and gender-nonconforming individuals.
