RiNo Art District is Denver ranks as one of the leading art districts in the nation.

My feature for Colorado Expression magazine shares the area’s history and tips for making the most of your visit to this colorful and creative area of the Mile High City with lots of street art, tasty restaurants, hopping breweries, and much more. Even three hours of free, covered parking!

One point stuck with me when touring RiNo Art District with Tracy Weil, an artist who co-founded the district and serves as president/creative director. He said he prefers to think of the development as “empowerment” rather than “gentrification.”

RiNo even includes a tiny house village for people who are homeless, proving the district has not only art but also heart.

You’ll never look at lawn chairs the same again once you get a glimpse at “La Musidora,” a kinetic design installation outside Denver Art Museum. Created by a famous pair of Mexican designers, the musical rocking chairs feature traditional weaving by Mexican artisans. What’s more, the chairs make music! Each includes a chime activated when the chairs rock. “La Musidora” allows people to sit face-to-face, thanks to a traditional Mexican chair design.

Rock on!
