  • Affordability for artists, creatives and entrepreneurs to advocate for and help keep RiNo artists in the district
  • RiNo design guidelines
  • RiNo gateways, wayfinding and signage
  • Brighton Boulevard construction

Located just north of downtown Denver, the RiNo Art District was formed in 2005 by a small group of artists focused on starting an artist and creative community and helping these businesses market their work. Today, RiNo is a state-certified Colorado Creative District and has grown to more than 200 member, 250 studios and 25 galleries. The district also includes a Business Improvement District and a General Improvement District.
