Not only will art lovers be able to speak to the artists who are displaying their work, but visitors to the festival can also see live art and style demonstrations. The demonstrations and other performances will take place on ArtStir’s main stage. For the first time this year, ArtStir will also include activities for children.
If these festivities aren’t enough, the city will also be playing host to Denver Comic Con on Saturday, Sunday and Monday of Memorial Day weekend. Celebrities, comic artists and more guests will be attending the con at the Colorado Convention Center, which will be just across the street from the Downtown Denver Arts Festival. The Denver Museum of Nature & Science has an exhibit called “Mythic Creatures: Dragons, Unicorns and Mermaids,” which celebrates fantastical creatures in myth, fiction and art. “The Nature of Horses,” an exhibit of life-sized sculptures of horses by Deborah Butterfield, will open on Saturday at Denver Botanic Gardens. Denver seems to have something for everyone this coming Memorial Day weekend. More information about these events and more can be found at www.denver.org.
