Denver, CO, April 25, 2016 — Now in its fourth year, ArtStir Denver will be held over Memorial Day weekend on Saturday, May 28 and Sunday, May 29 at Denver Pavilions in the heart of Downtown Denver. The popular Downtown arts event will feature over 100+ local and regional Colorado artists and crafters and will showcase a variety of works in painting, photography, illustration, textiles, furnishings, mixed media, and locally designed and handmade goods.

“We are excited to once again feature Colorado artists in a high profile location in the heart of Downtown,” said Wendy Manning, Marketing Director at Denver Pavilions and Show Director for Artist Denver. “We are encouraged and inspired by ArtStir Denver’s participating artists and feel we will produce an amazing show at Denver Pavilions over Memorial Day weekend.”

A portion of the proceeds from ArtStir will benefit VSA Colorado/Access Gallery, an inclusive nonprofit organization that engages the community by opening doors to creative, economic and educational opportunities for people with disabilities. Artwork from VSA Colorado artists will be on display and for sale during the two-day arts event.

In addition to artists booths, ArtStir Denver will feature a variety of food and drink vendors in the Colorado Craft Lot from Denver Pavilions restaurants including Hard Rock Cafe Denver, Maggiano’s Little Italy and Grimaldi’s Pizzeria.
