Street Art

Main Avenue closed its doors to motorists last weekend and welcomed the Main Avenue Arts Festival to downtown Durango. Pedestrians mingled amongst the shops and booths and perused the colorful artwork exhibited throughout the weekend. Delicate inlaid woodwork, magnificent glass art, photography, jewelry and paintings of all disciplines were just a small portion of the talent on display. The streets and sidewalks of downtown Durango remained full despite afternoon thunder showers and a multitude of competing local events.
