ENRICH-0708 – Art Hist In-Person: Art Gallery Tour (ENRICH-0708_TOUR)

40 West Arts District Walking Tour

Many familiar with the area call it a hidden gem: the 40 West Arts District in Lakewood along historic West Colfax Avenue. Here’s your chance to discover this vibrant arts destination that’s winning plenty of praise and oohs and ahhs via a fun and informative walking tour. The program begins at The HUB, 6501 W. Colfax Ave. where 40 West Arts Executive Director Liz Black explores the district’s history, development, public projects, and community revitalization efforts. Black also shares a short video on the Artline, a four-mile, walkable, bikeable route that curves around parks, a community farm and local businesses narrated by art advocate Corinne Anderson. Then local artist and 40 West Gallery Manager Terra Marks leads a tour of the six galleries and creative businesses in The HUB, which are artist-owned and operated. “Each gallery has its own unique flare and plenty of great art,” Marks says. The final segment follows a few blocks away at 1560 Teller St. with tours of the CHAC Gallery, Pirate Contemporary Art and ABC Custom Framing, which houses two artist studios and a custom framing shop. Afterwards you can take part in a question-and-answer session and enjoy a self-guided tour of the Artline.
