This is the first year when the event will be a cooperative effort between the RiNo Arts District and Crush Planning Committee, which includes original Crush founders Robin Munro (Dread) and Jonathan Lamb. Led by artist Tracy Weil, co-founder of the RiNo arts district and current boardmember, the district will really step up the planning and fundraising that goes into the event.
Local artists who'll participate include Thomas Evans aka Detour 303, Taste, Illson, Joseph Martinez, Hollis and Lana, Patrick McGregor, Dread, Axel Geitmann, Zehb and more. Out-of-towners on the impressive lineup include Sense from Japan, LA's MadMan Art, Mexico City artist Beo, JB Snyder from Phoenix, Bruno and Shalack Attack from Canada, Taketo Kobiyachi from Japan, Blaine Fontana from Portland and many more still to be announced.
