Fine Art

a visual art considered to have been created primarily for aesthetic purposes and judged for its beauty and meaningfulness, specifically, painting, sculpture, drawing, watercolor, graphics, and architecture.

The Denver Handmade Alliance is joining forces with the Metropolitan State University of Denver’s Center for Visual Art to bring you the 5th Annual Art by Craft Exhibit and we want you to enter!

The Art by Craft Exhibit is a collection of works that are created with or explore traditional craft techniques and concepts in the form of fine art. We are asking you to explore a craft based medium in the context of fine art, in other worlds elevating a medium traditionally known as craft to the level of fine art. Pieces can be in a variety of mediums, but must directly relate to craft in some way.

The Denver Handmade Alliance and the Center for Visual Art are curating the exhibit with the aim of showcasing the art of local and regional handmade artists.

Email events@denverhandmade.org for an application, or with any questions. Applications must be submitted by August 1st at the latest.

Sincerely,
The Denver Handmade Alliance

WHAT:

The “Better Block” project is a community revitalization effort that temporarily demonstrates how to improve
a public space with pedestrian and public infrastructure mixed with art, culture, pop-up businesses and street
life. For one day, the project will install pedestrian improvements, create seating areas, provide landscaping and
street furniture, incorporate art into the public space, provide live music, and more. Better Block aims to create
quick, inexpensive, high-impact changes that lead to permanent solutions for areas in Denver.

Building on the 2012 success of Better Block Jefferson Park, WalkDenver along with community partners is
working on the 2013 Demonstration. The target area for this project is 24th Street between California and
Welton Streets and Sonny Lawson Park in the historic African American community of Five Points in Denver.
While designated as a Pedestrian Corridor in the North East Downtown Area Plan, 24th Street and adjacent
historical Sonny Lawson Park have been neglected and present conditions are substandard and unsafe. Better
Block project will aim at low-cost improvements to the quality of the built environment that will result in an
inviting and vibrant public space essential to the social and economic health of the community. Many of the
improvements introduced during the event will become permanent amenities in the park.

The event program includes life music, ballet performance, gardening demonstrations, story time, walking tours,
bike rides, food trucks, tennis, yoga, dance walking, youth marketplace and much more!

WHO: WalkDenver along with Denver Arts and Venues, Volunteers of America Colorado Chapter, Kentwood
Properties, Additional Postage Required and community partners.

WHEN: May 11th, 2013 (10AM – 5PM)

WHERE: 24th Street between California and Welton Streets and Sonny Lawson Park in the historic Five Points in
