We had a great time hosting our members at this awesome sold-out mural tour, led by Tracy Weil executive director of the RiNo Arts District.
Everyone gathered on a cold October afternoon for a guided tour of the recently refreshed murals in Denver's hippest new neighborhood. With new works by local artists and famous muralists like Shepard Fairey, the guided tour touched on the ins and outs of how public art is selected and paid for in Denver, the Crush Walls public art event and other initiatives in the area to bring art to the fore in the public space.
Thanks to our generous sponsors (including Make West, RiNo Sign Works, the RiNo Arts District and Odell's Brewing Co.) we were able to welcome the tour attendees to a free happy hour at Odell's recently completed RiNo tap room. This event was so popular that we anticipate repeating it again this year in some form, in conjunction with the Crush Walls festival.
