DENVER STREET ART

“Love This City,” by Pat Milbery.

River North Art District

Three to See:

“Reverberations” – Trippy, concentric circles comprised of geometric patterns overtake an otherworldly landscape in this pulsating piece by Damon Soule and Justin Lovato. Find it on the east side of Larimer, between 25th and 26th streets.
“Larimer Boy and Girl” – Artist Jeremy Burns’ clever use of a building’s extruding fins means you can only observe the complete image by walking toward it from a distance. Go one way and you’ll see a boy with a surprised expression; go the other to see a melancholy girl. It’s located at 27th and Larimer.
2668 Walnut St. – Vyal One tackled a massive project when he adorned the entire building at 27th and Walnut in hallucinogenic orbs and eyeballs. The result is electric.

East Colfax

Three to See:

“Oh Snap” – Robin Munro’s more-vivid-than-life portrayal of a startled, green-eyed, purple-haired woman wearing a gas mask is just one of several works that transformed an old car wash into an outdoor gallery at Williams Street and East Colfax Avenue.

“Walmart Girl” – Smiley faces replace the heads on a row of nude, arms-bearing women in this bold statement by Ark Artiste. It, too, is part of the 30-artist installation at Williams and Colfax.

ABend Gallery Mural – The gallery, commissioned Anthony Garcia and Caleb Hahne, features a transfixing image of blindfolded and closed-eye faces fragmented by lines and bursts of color. See it at York and Colfax.

There are no music festivals for now, but check www.denver.org to see more of what this gem of the west has in store.
