It's Friday, and that means the weekend awaits in all of its colorful glory. And events don't get more colorful than Colorado Crush 2016. In case you missed our previous coverage, RiNo is hosting a huge street-art event over the next two days with 75 artists, 55 of whom are local, repainting sanctioned walls in the area around the 2400 to 3400 blocks of Larimer Street, all under the eyes of Crush founders Jonathan Lamb and Robin Munro, as well as Tracy Weil, River North Art District co-founder and chair.
Many of the artists have been painting all week, creating thirty really good reasons to head to RiNo for Crush weekend.
