Costumes from all the Star Wars movies. First Friday Art Walks. An evening of cave painting and tequila. Giant sculptures depicting sea life crafted from beach debris.
These are just a few of the arts and cultural-related exhibitions and events in Denver this year, adding up to a huge economic impact on city.
Based on a recent study by the Colorado Business Committee for the Arts, arts, cultural and scientific organizations generate $1.8 billion in economic activity with an economic impact of $512 million. They create more than 10,000 jobs, with outreach to children around 4 million.
