100 Colorado Creatives: Satya Wimbish

#61: Satya Wimbish

The vibe you get from Aurora artist Satya Wimbish is one of industry and, even more so, a great dollop of pure enthusiasm -- a lust for life in small-town terms, a love for the people and places she walks by every day in her familiar milieu of downtown Aurora. Driven by that enthusiasm, Wimbish runs things in a personal way in all her endeavors, from her business, Trash as Art, that transforms Dumpster finds (and the attic treasures of clients) into upcycled works of art, to her serious role as an Aurora Cultural Arts District board member and manager of ACAD's Colfax Avenue gallery, The Collection.

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.
