Downtown Grand Junction – where art and community collide. At the heart of dramatic canyons, burning sunsets, and powerful mountains, the valley has inspired art for thousands of years. Today, the Downtown Grand Junction Creative District stretches approximately two miles, filling each block with art, collaboration, and community. From coffee shops to street art, artists and businesses contribute, collaborate, and thrive like never before.
