The Cherry Creek Arts
Festival returns for its 22nd annual run Fri.-Sun., July 6-8.
DENVER ARTIST MARTIN LAMBUTH WAS SELECTED AS ONE OF THE EIGHT EMERGING ARTISTS to be featured at the Cherry Creek Arts Festival (CCAF), July 6-8, on the streets of Cherry Creek North. Referring to his style as “Random acts of paint,” Lambuth’s works are painted primarily with credit cards. His CCAF presentation will focus on a series of images of vintage trucks.
blend of the visual culinary and performing arts, the 2012 CCAF includes
236 juried and eight emerging artists selected from over 2,000 applicants.
Painting, glass, ceramics, digital art, photography, sculpture and much more
provide a nearly overwhelming visual feast for the 350,000 visitors expected
throughout the event.
The CCAF also provides an interactive
element for wanna-be artistes. Artivity
Avenue challenges your entire family to show off their inner Picasso by
lending a hand to the Imagination Collaboration mural, while Creation Station
entertains and educates young ones with a variety of hands-on art projects.
Foodies take heart! Some of Denver’s
favorite restaurants will set up along Culinary Avenue, to sate your
hunger and quench your thirst, while the Culinary Stage hosts chef
demonstrations showing you how the masters create those dishes you savor.
Is Culinary Avenue threatening to
distort your waistline? Never fear. The Art of Fitness presents Festival
Mornings encouraging patrons to try out new and fun ways to stay fit.
Workshops will include a variety of fitness options and take place on St. Paul
St. from 9-10:30a.m. each day of the festival.
Need a break from the browsing, and feel
like carousing? Live music and dance will keep the Janus Plaza Stage (Fillmore
St., between 1st & 2nd Ave.) and the Beer Garden Stage (St. Paul St.,
between 2nd & 3rd) jumping throughout the Festival. The Beer Garden
Stage will also offer later-night fun, 8-10p.m. on July 7-8.
