Telluride Arts Presents: Telluride Art Walk and Kids Walk

The First Thursday Art Walk is a celebration of the arts in downtown Telluride for art lovers, community and friends. A dozen venues open their doors from 5pm-8pm to introduce their new exhibitions and artists. The finest restaurants feature art walk specials that make for a great night out on the town.

New for the summer of 2011 select venues will extend their open hours and welcome children and their families for a special Kids Walk. A treasure map will provide a self guided tour and simple activities that teach basic principles of art through observation. Key venues will offer hands on activities. Maps are available at participating venues and around town or by calling Telluride Arts 970.728.3930 

For more information about Art Walk or Kids Walk, pick up a free brochure at any participating venue and around town or call Telluride Arts 970-728-8959 or visit
