100 Colorado Creatives: Nikki Pike

#9: Nikki Pike

Nikki Pike is a poster girl for the new artist: She doesn't do just one thing, she does it all -- from performance to sculpture to installation to multimedia and cross-disciplinary works to art as activism. The former instructor at Rocky Mountain College of Art + Design and current RedLine resident also champions the idea of community-driven art, with the goal of creating sustainable solutions through artful collaboration, as evidenced by her participation in projects like the bARTer Collective and Boulder's Flood Project. And Pike's bubbling over with even more ideas, as you'll learn from her 100CC questionnaire.

KEEP WESTWORD FREE... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Susan Froyd started writing for Westword as the "Thrills" editor in 1992 and never quite left the fold. These days she still freelances for the paper in addition to walking her dogs, enjoying cheap ethnic food and reading voraciously. Sometimes she writes poetry.
