The art installation at City Hall is coming to a close this weekend, and it will end with a display of some serious talent. Following Tuesday night's free Sub.Mission dubstep show with Denver residents RumbleJunkie, Despise, Dodger and Coult-45, in its final days Terminal Kings will show just what these artists can do under pressure. Click through to see some of the finished pieces, as well as the murals that are still in the works.
