17th Annual Downtown Aspen Art Festival, July 20 – 21

Aspen Art Festival

The Summer of Art Colorado Series is kicking off this July with a brand-new location during the 17th Annual Downtown Aspen Art Festival. 150 national and local artists are bringing world-class works spanning all mediums for two days on July 20 – 21.

Whether your passions run to sparkling jewels and one of a kind paintings; exquisitely crafted glasswork or an art deco sculpture, visitors are sure to find it during the free, two-day event.

Presented by Howard Alan Events (HAE), producer of the nation’s finest juried art shows, the Downtown Aspen Art Festival represents original, handcrafted artwork selected by an independent panel of expert judges from hundreds of applicants. HAE’s careful vetting process ensures a wide array of mediums and price ranges will be offered during the festival.

Throughout the year more than 10,000 artists and artisans participate in HAE’s shows, many of them having left various careers and jobs to pursue the rewarding and creative life of a touring artist.

The 17th Annual Downtown Aspen Art Festival is part of HAE’s 2019 Colorado Summer of Art tour which includes the 4th Annual Keystone River Run Village Art Festival on July 27 – 28, the 32nd Annual Beaver Creek Art Festival on August 3 – 4 and the 13th Annual Main Street to the Rockies Art Festival in Frisco on August 10 – 11.
