Straight From the Art: Ten of Our Colorado Creatives Sound Off

When Westword’s first 100 Colorado Creatives series came to an end last February, it was a little like losing a very artsy best friend. And there were still so many unsung creative types doing great things around this state that we decided to start on a second round of Q&As. Here are some of our favorites from the current 100 Colorado Creatives profiles:

Aaron Johnson

Rian Kerrane

Jeffrey Dante Campbell

Valerie Santerli

Thomas Scharfenberg

Jill Hadley Hooper

Tara Rynders

Andrea Moore

Darrin Alfred

Tariana Navas Nieves

KEEP WESTWORD FREE... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Susan Froyd started writing for Westword as the "Thrills" editor in 1992 and never quite left the fold. These days she still freelances for the paper in addition to walking her dogs, enjoying cheap ethnic food and reading voraciously. Sometimes she writes poetry.
