ART FOR RANSOM is back!…

This annual event allows Arts Street to ask the public: “What would the world be without art?” Come join us for a fun and unusual art auction on Friday, December 6 from 5-8pm

Check out this fun video we made of our 2009 Art for Ransom.


Arts Street asks the question, “where would the world be without art?” every year with the annual ART FOR RANSOM event. The first year we covered several public sculptures downtown, we’ve auctioned off ‘Mystery Art’ – works wrapped like a Christo in brown paper – and generally tried to get participants to imagine what their lives would be like if they never saw another piece of art. Then, we have a party and invite everyone to make a small (or large) contribution to the ransom, reveal the art, and host a silent auction of youth and local artists’ art.

This annual event is thought-provoking fun, and 2013 will be no exception! Come join us at our new location next to the 10th and Osage Denver Lightrail station: 1079 Osage Street.

Admission price: $10
To reserve a ticket please call us at 303-825-1334
We hope to see you there!

If you would like to donate art to this event, or sell your work for 50% of the proceeds, please download and fill out a submission form and return it by email or with your art to Arts Street.  Thank you very much!

…And we’re on Etsy!

Prior to the event, feel free to browse our new Etsy store: ArtsStreetArts! We are very excited to have this new feature up and running.  You will see some of this art at the Art for Ransom auction, so if you want to be sure a piece is yours then you can buy it now online!  When buying on Etsy you will be asked for a shipping address.  We will not be shipping any items to you, but we will make note of the sale and save it for you to pick up when you attend Art for Ransom.

We hope to see you at this year’s event! Please join our Facebook event to stay up to date on the latest news for Art for Ransom. While you’re there, please don’t forget to Like Us on Facebook! Thank you!
