Artopia, our annual celebration of art, culture and fashion, is taking it to the streets in 2017. On Saturday, February 25, City Hall will be the site of the artiest party of the year. While they sample cocktails and listen to the street sounds from some of Denver’s best DJs and musicians, party-goers can explore themed spaces curated by Artopia 2017 curator Jolt and dedicated to some of Denver’s most iconic streets – Larimer, Santa Fe, Federal and Colfax – and street artists.
Denver’s designers will show their street smarts, too, during the Whiteout fashion show that’s become a highlight of Artopia. D’Lola Couture, Equillibrium, Mona Lucero, Gino Velardi, Elyse Rainbolt, AnnaFesta, Blackberry Maverick, Denver Bespoke and Jiberish will be revving up the runway this year, working with style teams and models from Matthew Morris Salon, Well Beauty Co. and Wilhelmina Denver.
And once again, Artopia will include the chance to shop some of Colorado’s coolest shops and services, as well as applaud this year’s thirteenth class of MasterMinds
Presenting sponsor of this year's Artopia is Modelo Especial.
