Treat yourself to the Stanley Arts Festival Kickoff Party!
Our ticketed Kickoff Party benefits CherryArts year-round arts eduction programs and takes place exclusively at The Hangar at Stanley. The party will feature a sneak-peek at 40 of the 100 juried artists for the show, live performance art, interactive art, open bar and delicious culinary creations.
Since 1991, the CherryArts 501c3 nonprofit mission provides access to arts experiences and supports art education via the Cherry Creek Arts Festival, Stanley Arts Festival and statewide art education programs.
First open in December 2016, Stanley is no ordinary marketplace. Stanley Marketplace is a community of like-minded businesses and people who believe in doing things differently: sustainably, creatively and with more than the bottom line in mind. The more than 22-acre, 100,000 sq. ft. indoor/outdoor space was once Stanley Aviation headquarters, where airplane ejector seats were engineered and manufactured; now it is an adaptive reuse community hub, home to 50+ local and independent businesses, a park, a food hall, an events venue and more.

Join our friends at Aurora Public Libraries for a short story reading club! We'll meet once per month in August, September, and October, and each time we'll read and discuss a different short story with APL librarian Chris Grawl.
This is perfect for our friends who'd love to join a book club but worry they don't have the time, or our friends who are already in twenty book clubs and just can't get enough.
For August, we're reading "Where I'm Calling From" by Raymond Carver. We'll have a copy of the story for each attendee, and we'll give you time at the beginning of our gathering to read the short story, so reading it in advance is not required.
For September, we're reading "A Good Man Is Hard to Find" by Raymond Carver.
For October, we're reading "Al Roosten" by George Saunders.
Let us know if you'll be there, and please spread the word amongst your literary friends!
Come see your city in a whole new way, in an ode to the simple beauty and sublime mystery of sunset.
On this one-mile walk through the streets and greenways, audiences join the performers in unfolding the hidden contents of mundane environments. Together we’ll part the veil of our daily grind’s familiar façade, to witness the strange, gritty, gorgeous world just out of view.
Combining movement, music, spoken word, and delicate visual design, Watching Night Falling promises a rich, intimate experience of the everyday world.
Created and presented by Control Group Productions.
