Feed Denver's purpose has always been to connect the community. Whether the nonprofit is teaching urban-farming techniques or tackling the social and economic issues around food production, the focus is on giving the growing power to the people. Tonight, Feed Denver teams up with the Megafauna retail space to bring its mission to colorful life with a poster show at Hinterland gallery.
"The poster show came about from the art community wanting to work with Feed Denver," says Megafauna owner John McCaskill. McCaskill's shop has developed an integral relationship with local artists -- Jack Shure, 2Kool's Bimmer Torres and the creators behind Like-Minded Productions, to name a few -- all of whom will present work for sale at tonight's gathering.
The show's purpose is twofold: While raising money for the nonprofit through the poster sales, the night also acts as an informational springboard for Feed Denver's big event, In-Power, coming up on March 24 through 31. In-Power is a week-long gardening symposium which will feature workshops and lectures by urban agriculture expert Will Allen and food justice advocate Gary Nabhan.
The poster show runs tonight from 7 to 10 p.m. at Hinterland, 3254 Walnut Street. For more information, visit www.feeddenver.com or call 303-513-7548.
