Indy Ink Celebrates Ten Years!
The Gatsby got a solid taste of Denver’s art world at IndyInk’s tenth anniversary group exhibition. IndyInk holds down a solid spot on South Broadway and has been an anchor of the Denver arts scene for much of its decade-long history. Growing from a screen printing operation opened in 2002, IndyInk is now a retail shop, design studio, and gallery that consistently showcases local 303 artists.
This Denver institution is a brick and mortar bastion of art, design, and fashion. Check out Grimey Gatsby’s July feature on IndyInk. The group exhibition celebrating their tenth anniversary features fifty artists from the mile high city, indicative of their scope within the industry here.
The mood at the opening was festive and the crowd was a flavorful mix of styles and personalities. Biker Jim’s, running hot on the heels of their appearance at InkMonstr’s Pool Side party, was slinging dogs to the hungry art-viewing masses.

The back of the shop was a vibrant display of art, 303‘s Custom Printed skateboards (works of art in their own right); and fixed gear bikes and accessories from State Bicycle Co in poppy bright colors. These bikes from Tempe, Arizona can be custom built in house by a Velo-smith.
