DENVER (CBS4)– Denver Mayor Michael Hancock took a seat behind a pottery wheel and learned how to throw a pot. But it could be as easy as visiting a local museum to celebrate Denver Arts Week.

Hancock spun the wheel and made his own creation at the Dry Ice Factory in the River North Arts District.

Denver Arts Week features 250 special events and most of them are free.

“We have been fortunate to really enjoy all the arts, whether it has been performing arts, live music, the galleries that are in our city. We are fortunate to live in a city that quite frankly, has a diversity of galleries and opportunities no matter what you want to do on a particular night, you have a lot of options in Denver,” said Hancock.

There is a free Arts Walk on Friday and a free Night at the Museums on Saturday.

Denver Arts Week takes place from Nov. 2-10. Learn more about what’s coming up at
