Art collecting is an amazing hobby, allowing art aficionados to discover new talents from around the world and explore crafts in countless mediums. However, it can also be an expensive hobby, and the barrier to entry can be daunting to anyone on a budget. That’s what inspired the founders of one of the best art festivals in the country to make their event a little different. The Affordable Arts Festival in Colorado has one big difference – every art piece sold at the festival is under $150, much less than what they can sell for elsewhere! This show is the only place where you can find these unique items at this price The Affordable Arts Festival can be found on the grounds of Arapahoe Community College in Littleton, on the outskirts of Denver, and this year it’s being held on August 27th, 2023.
