It seems more and more every month that Denver embraces its art scene. Which is why last week’s proclamation by Mayor Hancock comes less like a surprise and more as a much-deserved award. Hancock officially named January 29, an official Denver holiday to celebrate local art advisory firm NINE dot ARTS. The firm has spent the better part of a decade shaping and supporting transformative art from the private to the public realm, in Denver and also increasingly in other major cities like Boston, Chicago and Seattle. 2019 also marks NINE dot ARTS’ nine-year anniversary, and so on January 29, the founders want to spend the day giving back to the local art community with an art supply drive.
