The Affordable Arts Festival, the fastest growing arts festival in Colorado (and ranked 20th in the nation) will take place Sunday, Aug. 26, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Arapahoe Community College, located at 5900 South Santa Fe Drive in Littleton.
And art patrons will be pleasantly surprised at the pricing.
Artwork worth thousands of dollars will be priced at $100 (or less), as some of the state’s (and nation’s) most renowned artists are clearing their studios to make room for their newest creations. There will be thousands of deals available, with artists from 23 states participating.
All of the artists are listed online – along with many of the artists’ “Best Deals” – at AffordableArtsFestival.com. Tickets are also available online (proceeds are donated to the Arapahoe Community College Foundation; tickets cost $10 each and children 12 and under are free). With proceeds from ticket sales going to the Arapahoe Community College Foundation, more than $75,000 in scholarship money has been raised to date.
The festival’s parking will provide 1,200 free parking spaces on campus, and a team of golf cart drivers to assist patrons in getting their purchases to their cars from the Festival exit.
The Affordable Arts Festival is currently ranked No. 20 out of over 600 shows in the country. The festival features fine arts and crafts from over 160 outstanding local and national artists, all for sale for under $100.
“People love to come to the festival to purchase incredible artwork from professional artists for less than $100, while supporting the goals and ambitions of future artists” said Jim DeLutes, who has been founder and director of the Affordable Arts Festival for the last seven years. “This is artwork that would typically be sold for many-times the amount the artists are asking, and it’s an effective way for them to sell a lot of art in just a few hours, help aspiring art students and also connect many people to their artwork for the first time. This is a one-day-only event, so anyone who loves fine artwork, or wants to experience an arts festival for the first time, should be sure to visit us in a friendly, unintimidating place to see, experience and buy high quality artwork.”
Some of the state’s most outstanding artists, and national artists from 23 states will have booths at the Festival, with artwork on display and for sale. The level of activity between the artists and attendees contributes greatly to the highly-energized level of enthusiasm and fun.
See why many call this the ‘Black Friday’ of arts festivals.
