Join us for our debut arts activities during Doors Open Denver!
From jazz and contemporary dance at Union Station to a pop-up museum in La Alma/Lincoln Park, the Denver Architectural Foundation is infusing 11 venues with local arts and artists! Supported by the Bonfils-Stanton Foundation, each arts activity is inspired by Denver and its architecture, design and history.
All activities are free and open to the public during Doors Open Denver weekend; some require a ticketed reservation (as noted below).
