     40 West Arts, designated by the State of Colorado as an Emerging Creative District in March 2012, is a nonprofit arts district championing the cultural and economic vitality of the region. This community-oriented arts district embraces the Arts–Arts of all kind–from fine arts to digital media, cool jazz to string quartets, songwriting to traditional crafts–and everything in between. 40 West’s singular goal is to support the arts by creating community arts spaces and community arts events in order to bring the joy and energy of creativity to the community. With a balanced approach of supporting both established and emerging artists as well as encouraging hands-on experimentation with the arts for the self-proclaimed non-artists, 40 West exists to enrich the community and support the cultural and economic vitality of the region.
