Mark your calendars, The Crush is coming back to the streets of RiNo this fall to cover the neighborhood in colorful, creative murals once again. From September 12-18, over 40 local, national, and international artists will descend on the north Denver neighborhood to convert the ancient brick, concrete, and refurbished industrial buildings into vibrant canvases during the area's signature annual street art event.
Visitors will be able to partake in activities for the family, visit a local bar or restaurant for special event deals, enjoy local music, watch the artists at work, and partake in a massive celebration during the weekend.
This year, The Crush partnered with the RiNo Art District to help grow and develop the event during its seventh year.
"The Crush has really evolved these past few years as the neighborhood has," says RiNo Art District Executive Director, Jamie Licko. "We can't wait to see how this year furthers that evolution with this partnership."
While the details of the event are still closely under wraps, organizers say that artists, sponsors, locations, and programming will be announced very soon.
"We have some really amazing talent coming in for this year's event and have partnered with some really big sponsors," said Amanda Kriss, Programs Manager for The Crush. "It really is going to be a big year for the Crush."
