Harrison Nealey on Beauty Is, graffiti and the Magnet Mafia

His Magnet Mafia partner may have moved to San Francisco, but Harrison Nealey's sticking with Denver. He's been working on commissioned sculptures for artists at Demiurge, and that inspired him to put together Beauty Is, a solo show that opens Friday, September 28, at Division West.

We recently caught up with Nealey to ask him about the show, moving from magnets to sculpture, and more.
