Art lives in the space where nature and community meet. For More Info: rinoartpark.com
Over the last fourteen years, the River North (RiNo) area of North Denver has undergone a tremendous shift in use, visitation, and makeup. What once was an industrial corridor of the city centered on railroads, warehouses, and factories has transformed into a vibrant community for artists, residents, and innovative businesses. As the physical environment evolves to accommodate these changes; through infrastructure improvements, new development, and transit integration; two major aspects have yet to be addressed: Affordability and green space.
Today, the RiNo Art District is in the unique position to address both while retaining two historic buildings in the future RiNo ArtPark. After several years of advocacy, in February, 2018, the City of Denver granted the RiNo Art District a letter of intent to lease these buildings that were originally slated for demolition. Through this partnership, the art district will be responsible for the renovation, build out, activation, and programming for these buildings in a way never before seen in a public park in Colorado.
