Anythink has been named as a 2020 Business for the Arts Award honoree by the Colorado Business Committee for the Arts (CBCA). This annual award honors outstanding business and arts partnerships from across the state to be celebrated at the Business for the Arts Awards Luncheon on March 10, 2020. Anythink receives this award for inspiring and facilitating creativity through The Studio, interactive public art and cultural programming. The library joins six other honorees:  America’s Mattress of Western Colorado, Centura Health, Downtown Denver Business Improvement District, Mountain Sun Pubs and Breweries, Roaring Fork Transportation Authority, Youth on Record and Zeppelin Development. The Business for the Arts Award is the only statewide event honoring organizations and individuals for their engagement with the arts. Tickets for the awards luncheon, to be held at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts, are available online.

“One of our core values at Anythink is ‘Everyone is creative,’ and we live this value by supporting the creativity of our staff and community,” says Stacie Ledden, Anythink director of innovations and brand strategy. “Libraries are critical institutions that help people follow their passions and live more creative lives. We’re grateful to be honored by CBCA and nominated by our partner Alt Ethos for this work.”

With a focus on creativity and innovation, Anythink fosters artistic opportunities for the Adams County community through interactive programming, creative resources, strategic partnerships, public art and artists in residence. Additionally, the library serves as a hub for cultural experiences, from performances and concerts to curated exhibitions and community showcases. These experiences are free and open to all.

Anythink was nominated for the Business for the Arts Award by Denver-based Alt Ethos, a creative technology studio focused on innovative projects. Alt Ethos created Anythink’s latest collaborative public art installation – “The Singing Tree” – for the Perl Mack community of Denver.
