Garden County High School Art Students went on a trip to Denver for First Friday. We went to the Denver Art Museum, took a stroll down 16th Street Mall, and finished off the day looking at galleries in the Santa Fe Art District. It was an awesome cultural experience to view art in a formal setting and interpret the meaning behind the creations.
