coloradocrush.org – @OfficialCOCrush
Taking over several blocks on Larimer Street in the RINO/Ballpark neighborhood, the district is ablaze in color and community as revered artists from all over the country come together to beautify the city.
Colorado Crush is an event on a mission to embrace the element of graffiti as a positive medium, uniting our community on a conscious level through art, music and fun. Our goal is to celebrate and recognize an art form that has long been disregarded by the art world and general public as a passing phase or nuisance by showcasing not only its beauty, but also the culture and community it encourages.
Colorado Crush is about community, and the culture that is embedded in it. Today, graffiti remains part of hip-hop, while crossing into the mainstream art world with renowned exhibits in galleries throughout the world. In modern education when people learn about other communities and cultures they mostly focus on the history of that place.
What: Colorado Crush is a celebration of graffiti and street art showcasing top artists from all over the country alongside Colorado’s most esteemed talent
When: September 6th, 2014
Where: Various designated walls on Larimer Street spanning from 26th Avenue to 30th Avenue
