About RiNo Art District

The RiNo Art District is a distinctive area of north Denver that is inclusive of the historical neighborhoods of Globeville, Elyria- Swansea, Five Points and Cole. The district started as a grass roots movement by local artists that wanted to connect the arts organizations in the area. Today, RiNo is comprised of four organizations, the RiNo Art District (the 501(c)(6) nonprofit arm, registered neighborhood organization, and state certified creative district), the RiNo BID (Business Improvement District), the RiNo GID (General Improvement District), and Keep RiNo Wild (the new 501(c)(3) nonprofit fundraising arm). Together, these organizations fund and support the area through advocacy, infrastructure improvements, artist support, community programming, business support, and events.
