Denver Arts Week Meets Pinterest in the “Denver Hearts The Arts” Contest

Denver Arts Week has a new, social media spin in 2012. VISIT DENVER, the Convention & Visitors Bureau invites art lovers to create a “Denver Hearts the Arts” Pinterest board and start pinning artistic images from around the city. From Denver’s magnificent architecture to whimsical public art, all things artistic are fair game.

Pinterest is a virtual pin-board and image sharing website that allows users to create themed image collections. It is one of the biggest web success stories of 2012 and has close to 25 million users. Go here to get more information on Pinterest.
