River North Art District, RiNo for short.
Located just north of downtown, RiNo includes a remarkable concentration of creative businesses, including architects, art galleries, designers, furniture makers, illustrators, painters, media artists, photographers, sculptors and an array of studio spaces.
RiNo is bounded by I-70 to the North, I-25 to the West, Park Avenue West to the South, and Arapahoe Street to the East. While retaining its industrial roots, the RiNo neighborhood is now fertile ground for arts and artists. The River North Art District is dedicated to promoting and supporting the people and businesses that reside in the area.
The official nickname for the district is "RiNo," pronounced rhino! Created from the first two letters of the neighborhood River North. It's sticking!
RiNo is the trademarked name for the River North Art District. RiNo includes creative businesses in River North, Upper Larimer & Globeville. The RiNo Art District is a registered Non-Profit organization.
