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

John McCaskill of the Upper Larimer boutique/gallery MegaFauna got his start at Derailed Ink, a screen-printing business, and printed work -- more specifically, exquisitely crafted band posters -- is still one of his passions as a retailer. No surprise, then, that McCaskill has chosen to showcase posters and artists in the first of what he expects to be a yearlong, traveling series of It's a MF Art Show exhibitions featuring different aspects of MegaFauna's creative stock.

"The goal of these shows is to open the public's opinion of art to include more than just visual arts; accessories, apparel, design, music, performance pieces all encompass the range we embrace as 'art' at MegaFauna," McCaskill says. "We hope this brings more awareness toward art and, of course, helps garner support for independent creatives everywhere." A dozen local artists, including both new and established faces, will offer unique and affordable graphics representing local and global acts alike. The show kicks off with a party from 6 to 10 p.m. on Thursday, January 10 at MegaFauna and the adjacent Meadowlark; food, drink and music will be part of the package. Posters will then remain on view at both locations through the month of January.
