This weekend a dear friend and I rented an adorable Airbnb Bungalow in the RiNo District of Denver (River North Art), and hit the pavement. I’ve been wanting to explore this up and coming neighborhood, and it did not disappoint.
Coffee shops, concrete dive bistros, a wine brewery with wine-in-a-can, cute houses, and creativity oozing from its cracks. But the highlight was the street art – one of my personal favs, which was everywhere.
The homeless (bless their souls) have never had better décor in these kaleidoscopic alleys with matching dumpsters. Our bungalow, the perfect walking distance to it all.
Live/work studios are being built in every spare space, as Colorado pours its money into developing the art industry. The crowd and energy were sizzling. Tequila samples, Latino Art, Political art by the young and unafraid, and plump smiling men exploring their darkest nightmares on canvas. So much expression, so much to admire about these brave, creative people.
Oh, and there were food carts.
Where’s your favorite place to look at art? Leave a comment below… I’d love to know!
