What do artists think about the city they live in, wherever that might be, and what does it mean to them? At Illiterate Gallery, a new show, Mile High on the Map, cast a few clues on the Denver point of view. We hit the opening on Friday night. Take a look:
Andrew Hoffman's Denver skates down East Colfax Avenue, as related by his smart poster and deck duo.
"My Colfax," Andrew Hoffman
Steven Prochyra's Denver experience is expressed on a woodcut cleverly printed on a grid of light rail tickets.
"Denver State of Mind," Steven Prochyra
For Sander Lindeke and Emily Hinson, Denver is an unfinished embroidery. Think about it.
"Denver Dive," Sander Lindeke and Emily Hinson
According to Scot LeFavor, Denver is a place where we swill brews.
"Denver Bender," Scot LeFavor
"Underneath Denver," Rob Mack
Jouvert's Denver is a stop on the highway.
"70 Colfax," Jouvert
Ruben Gaucin's Denver is desolately post-apocalyptic.
"Corin's Way," Ruben Gaucin
Chris Cox's Denver is big, blue, alien and ugly. What can we do about that?
