Artists Sunday is a nationwide day to support local artists in your local community. It is the world’s largest art event, dedicated to highlighting local artists and recognizing the impact they have in enriching our lives, communities, and the economy.  Visit the Longmont Creative District for gallery openings, artist popups inside businesses, and working artist studios throughout. Choose local art and give something special, unique, and handcrafted this holiday season, and support local artists and the local economy at the same time. There’s perhaps nothing more personal than a gift of the arts.
