Artist Opportunities:

The River North Art District frequently receives requests from local businesses and organizations to showcase artwork by RiNo artists.
We welcome these opportunities!

As advocates for artists, we strongly encourage collaborators to fairly compensate artists for their time and effort toward these mutually beneficial projects. The River North Art District offers the following suggestions:

  • Pay the artist a percentage of the retail value of the art on display. A standard rate is 5 to 10% per month. For example if the total value of the art work being displayed is $5000, a stipend between $250 and $500 would be in order.
  • Host a reception for the artist to invite collectors and the community to view the artwork. This benefits all involved by expanding the audience for the artist, and increasing sales for the business/host. 
  • Purchase artwork. 

Hosts/venues can support the business of art while also promoting their own business. Stipends should be handled between the artist and the host. Please contact the host directly to work out the details.

In addition, artists receive numerous requests to donate work as fundraisers for charitable causes. These requests will be posted on this site only if the artist receives a percentage of the sale proceeds. These guidelines are in accordance with our Feed the RiNo campaign.

Thank you for supporting our artists and helping our neighborhood thrive! You can contact RiNo here with your listing.

SIGN UP BY JUNE 15th!! -- Artist Memberships - GREAT SPACE!

Processus

Institute for Art and Life

WHAT:

“Processus [prɔsesys]: French word for process, evolution; a group of actions with a common goal; a series of events or a succession of methods.

Processus also relates to Process Art, an artistic movement where the end product is not the principal focus.

This multi-use space is inspired by our art philosophies and by our way of life. Driven by process and ideas, our works reflect timeless actions and methods as we often go back to the basics. For years, we have dreamed about a place to work, a place to meet new people and share important ideas. We envision a place where the artist community will share processes and ideas, a place to experiment and discover new things, a place that focuses on experience and chance encounters.

This came from the need of a simple space where individual artists, designers and community members can make objects and learn new things regardless of their abilities or background. The focus of the workspace will be on handmade objects and works on paper. It will include a shop, a clean room and a darkroom. It will also provide tools, assistance and advice for artists to make what they need to professionally display their works. It will be a place for people to discuss ideas, and experiment with materials. Creative individuals and community members will learn from each other, blurring the boundaries between art and life.

As part of the project, a small café will offer a space for people to think and share ideas. The café will focus on locally grown simple foods and vegan treats. Regular offerings of art displays, talks, pop up events, etc… will start after the workspaces are open. The café will be open to the public while the workspace will be open to members only.”

The Governor's Mansion looking for holiday decor!

My name is Karen Bozik and I've been an artist in the Denver area for over twenty years.  During the last four, I have been the Designer/Director of the holiday decor at the Colorado Governor's Residence. 

This year, I'd like to showcase local arts districts by inviting them to decorate a tree for inside the mansion.  This can be approached from a number of different ways--however you'd like to have the River North Arts District represented--small works by RiNo artists, etc...sculpture at the base of the tree, etc.. Our trees are 7' high..

We are not asking for donations and all work is the property of the artists.  The work cannot carry price tags, but you are welcome to display any promotional materials and contact information that you wish.  The holiday season is our busiest time of the year, with private evetns and public tours--so, you do get a lot of exposure.  We also receive quite a bit of press.

The installation is Nov. 13th-21st.  You can bring work in at any time during those 9 days.  Break down is the first week of January.
