Keep Westword Free

Guerilla Garden and other local artists painted the Matchbox red, white and blue for PBR

In an effort to ward off the persistent tagging of its building, The Matchbox on Larimer Street hired a group of some of Denver's biggest-name artists -- with funding from Pabst Blue Ribbon -- to cover its walls with odes to that storied hipster beer. Last night, those artists -- who included Andrew Hoffman, Jolt of Guerilla Garden, Sam Turner, Keenan Hock, Mike Graves, and So-Gnar -- came out to paint and party. Westword Photog Kelly Kaoudis brings back these pictures.

Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
