The 40 West ArtLine is an exciting new amenity in the heart of the 40 West Arts Creative District along historic West Colfax Avenue and the W Line light rail in Lakewood, Colorado. The 4-mile walking and biking arts experience opened in June 2018 and connects parks and other destinations in 40 West. Visitors can experience over 70 works of public art along the way, with more art installations being planned. Supported by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, the ArtLine is envisioned to become a special place for the Lakewood community and for others living in and visiting the metro Denver region.
