Telluride's First Thursday Art Walk, February 3

D300 Passing Through 2m It's getting to be a habit with Telluride locals – and that's a good thing. We are talking about the Telluride Council for the Arts and Humanities' First Thursday Art Walk, a stroll about town that showcases our fine arts scene. Galleries and other arts venues, located in and around Colorado Avenue (Main Street), plus retail stores, stay open late until 8 p.m.

New to Art Walk 2011, many local restaurants offer Art Walk Specials, including The Cosmopolitan, La Cocina de Luz, La Marmotte, The Llama, The New Sheridan Chop House, and Pescado.

Free Art Walk brochures, available at any participating venue (and our hotels and coffee shops), offer a self-guided map of the participating establishments which include:
