The 2019 INSPIRE Arts Week logo.

 INSPIRE Arts Week is a week-long annual arts and culture event that takes place throughout Lakewood.

“Public art reflects a community and its surroundings working to cultivate a cultural identity by setting a community apart and attracting people to its uniqueness. Artwork helps express a community's values and creates an elevated sense of awareness for community members and visitors.” *

Lakewood will host INSPIRE Arts Week, May 27 – June 3 , to celebrate the vast variety of art offered throughout the city. During the 2023 events, more than 20 Lakewood galleries, cultural centers, shops and other art venues will host free and low-cost arts and culture experiences for the community. 

INSPIRE will kick off at the Lakewood Cultural Center with exhibitions including: 

• “A Space to ‘Be’” -featuring atmospheric and serene paintings

• “The Passions Project” -celebrating the beauty of aging

• “Creative Culture” -exploring the talents of Lakewood volunteers and staff

• “Recalibrated Reflections” -showcasing muralists painting within the gallery space

The Lakewood arts facilities including Lakewood Cultural Center, Washington Heights Arts Center and Heritage Lakewood Belmar Park will host several free community arts engagement activities throughout Inspire Arts Week.

In the community, don’t miss an opportunity to connect with a myriad of local artists, galleries, makers and creative spaces at the First Friday Art Walk at 40W Arts on June 2. Experience the vibrancy of the Belmar Block 7 Galleries and participate in creative activities at Rocky Mountain College of Art + Design (RMCAD), the Belmar Library, or take a walk along Alameda to experience the exceptional public art supported by Alameda Connects. 

The week culminates with the Rockin’ Block Party at Heritage Lakewood Belmar Park on June 3. There is no better time than a Colorado summer to get out and celebrate the creative organizations and events that make up the City of Lakewood’s INSPIRE Arts Week.
