First Fridays exhibit art and culture on Sante Fe Drive each month

For my Final Cut Pro audio slide show, I wanted to introduce college students to the First Friday Art Walk, a monthly event on Sante Fe Drive.

Denver’s Art District hosts over 60 galleries, restaurants and shopping spots. On the first Friday of each month, the Art District opens its doors from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. for lively crowds to socialize, view the works and speak with the artists.

Though the event occurs every four weeks, the First Friday art walk never fails to draw a crowd, according to participants and visitors. Through my audio slide show, I attempted to give a visual depiction of the crowds that flock to the Sante Fe for the event. I also accumulated a series of photographs from before, during and after the event to give an image of the art works, the artists, the galleries and the area. No one specific medium or style is most prominent, as can be seen from the slide show, a wide variety of work can be found in the collections and even outside throughout the district itself.

    Really cool topic. Nice variety of shots. Good job getting a ton of interviews in-and good variety of different people. I also liked the way to interwove the music–or used it in the background–either way, it really worked to capture the ambience of First Fridays.
