What is ARTSWEEK GOLDEN?
ARTSWEEK GOLDEN is a week-long celebration of the arts orchestrated by Foothills Art Center in partnership with arts-oriented organizations in beautiful Golden, Colorado. Foothills Art Center traces its roots to 1968 when a group of artists formed to renovate the historic First Presbyterian Church into a thriving regional arts center. In 2018 Foothills Art Center will celebrate its 50th Anniversary while continuing to serve artists, house creative exhibits and offer educational programming and classes for learners of all ages.
