Did you come to our March 2017 District-wide Art Walk, where a swarm of fabric installation Jellyfish roamed through the District dancing, walking and delighting attendees? This super family-friendly, awe-your-kid, totally free moving art installation was a huge hit … so we’re bringing it back. Mark your calendars for First Friday, March 2, from 5 to 8 p.m., when the Bad Asstronauts will be shakin’ and movin’ throughout the district, in and out of galleries, and all around. We'll also have live music set up at multiple spots and all of our galleries and creative spaces (including 40W Studios) open. Bring your whole family for this fun celebration.

40 West Summit, Feb. 21

Come get a little tipsy and tell us what you think of the 40 West Arts District at our 40W Summit, fast approaching on Wednesday Feb. 21, from 5 to 6:30 p.m., at WestFax Brewing, 6733 W. Colfax, with informal remarks at 5:30 p.m. The summit is a casual come-and-go-as-you-please event where you can drink a beer, network with other creatives, and give us your thoughts and feedback on upcoming initiatives, programming and areas of focus. It’s also a great way to learn about the district and ways to get involved. Did we mention there's beer? Mark your calendars for this open house. We really want to hear from you.
