Denver has always been a city vibrant with a colorful art scene. From the many music shows that grace such stages at Red Rocks to Larimer Lounge, the fashion, the first-Friday art walks, the incredible restaurants, Denver is a city that continues to grow in all areas of art.
Back in 2009, a group of people got together, in collaboration with the River North Art District, and decided to throw an art event that would come to be one of the most loved events in Denver. Colorado Crush is Denver’s largest independent street art festival that takes over the alleyways and storefronts of the RiNo neighborhood. RiNo has been an up-and-coming neighborhood for a several years now, with more stores and restoration of homes and buildings happening, this neighborhood continues to become a place people venture to life, eat and play. The alley that now holds most of the street art is lovingly referred to as “Art Alley”. Last year, there were over 70 street artists who ventured to Denver for the week along event to share their incredible talents with the city.
If you are around Denver, head down to RiNo to see some of the artists work. Get some amazing pictures of the incredible art that is brightening up the alleyways and RiNo itself. Support your local art scenes like Colorado Crush that help bring new artists to the city and bring together the community.
