Nonprofit 501(c)(6) membership organization. Ensures cohesion across all entities and the delivery of initiatives in an equitable and community-driven manner.

RiNo Art District is a grassroots nonprofit made up of passionate advocates who believe in the power of art to connect people and create a thriving community.

Art is the common thread that unites the district, and the lens through which we view our work in support of the community here.

Our district is inclusive of the historical neighborhoods of Globeville, Elyria-Swansea, Five Points and Cole. (MAP)

Over the last decade, we’ve helped form both a Business Improvement District (BID) and General Improvement District (GID) and an arts educational nonprofit (Keep RiNo Wild) to support the local community.

Together, the RiNo Art District family of organizations fund and support our community through advocacy, infrastructure improvements, artist support, community programming, business support, and events.

With district stakeholders sitting on RiNo’s boards, dedicated staff leading strategic projects, and a collective budget to invest, RiNo is responding to the needs and wants of people in this community with initiatives that will support a better experience for everyone for generations to come.
