RiNo's Rhino charges into view tonight

The timing couldn't be more perfect. Today's installation of sculptor Mike Whiting's touted public work Rhino at the intersection of Larimer and 24th streets at the gateway to the RiNo Arts District flawlessly dovetails with tonight's opening reception for his solo show Primitives down the street at Plus Gallery. And take a look: It's a beaut! Not to mention, double incentive to head on down to RiNo for a Mike Whiting evening.
