Denver’s Art District on Santa Fe

About a mile south of Denver’s downtown core and tucked within the Lincoln Park neighborhood lies the Art District on Santa Fe. A stretch of art galleries, studios, performance venues, and specialty shops that has yet to be overrun by excessive commercialization and development. As you walk up and down this street, you are struck by an explosion of street art. These pieces are spectacular experiences representing multiple influences – graffiti, hip-hop, Mexican culture, and social commentary.
