A Tour Through the 5th Annual Stanley Arts Festival

Over 20,000 art enthusiasts gathered at Stanley Marketplace for this year’s most successful fest

A celebration of arts and culture, CherryArts brought its expertise from the long-running Cherry Creek Arts Festival up to Stapleton for the 5th annual Stanley Arts Festival. Transforming the marketplace into an open-air gallery, the free event packed in 20,100 art-enthusiasts to explore local and national artistry.

13 different disciplines of art were showcased, from ceramics, photography, painting, digital art and drawing, to name a few. An intimate shopping experience, attendees could purchase the art and chat with the creators of the pieces to understand vision, inspiration and technique.

This year CherryArts partnered with the Museum of Outdoor Arts to feature large-scale inflatable sculpture installations, “Creatura Psychedelica” by Bill Kennedy of San Francisco.

A portion of the proceeds from the Stanley Arts Festival supports CherryArts’ 501c3 mission to provide access to art experiences and support arts education in Colorado.
