Now, RiNo is ready for a new decade, driven by the creativity and tenacity that is its hallmark.
With more than 30 district stakeholders sitting on RiNo’s boards, five staff leading strategic projects, and a budget of $1 million+ to invest, RiNo is moving forward on critical initiatives that will shape the art district and its neighborhood for years to come. Through creativity, collaboration, partnerships, and pushing the envelope, the RiNo Art District is setting a new standard for how creative neighborhoods evolve.
