Rainbow Militia at Invisible City

March 19th, 2019

By my current estimate*, roughly 29% of social media is devoted to decrying why social media is so terrible for us. They’re not wrong. We spend a shocking amount of time comparing other people’s carefully-curated presentations of their mundane lives to our own, known-to-be-dreary existences. People who I know are boring as dirt in real life look like rock stars online. I am not immune to this: my phone tells me that I spend upwards of two hours a day staring at it, which is far more than I have ever spent staring at any lover I have ever had. Make of that fact what you will. I bring this up... Read More

The Mile High 4.20K Comes to Denver on 4/20!

March 16th, 2019

A mile higher. A mile healthier. That’s the slogan for the first ever 4.20K walk/run coming to the mile-high city on 4/20/2019. Denver is well known for having an overwhelming number of events catering to the cannabis lifestyle, and now there’s one specifically for athletes, fitness enthusiasts, and anyone looking to promote the health and wellness benefits of this remarkable plant. The event is designed to “raise awareness and promote a healthy lifestyle with cannabis for medicinal purposes; physically, mentally, and psychologically. Finding different ways to give back to the community without... Read More

GEORGIA

March 16th, 2019

I love this city. The music, the art, the scenery, the people; it’s all top notch. One of the greatest things about Denver is the DIY community. It takes a special kind of person to pour their heart and soul, not to mention blood, sweat, and tears, into a project to benefit others. It takes a special kind of community to nurture these projects and help them thrive. Denver is an ideal in both of these aspects. We’ve had more than our fair share of legendary underground music venues, but now we have a slightly different DIY gem. The soon-to-be-all-the-rage garage gallery, GEORGIA. You... Read More

Cannabis Committee Clearing the Air for Consumers

March 9th, 2019

With cannabis legalization rapidly spreading across the world, the selection of products available are growing quickly. The numbers of consumers and products are growing, and deciding which products to consume with the desired effects and proper dosage can be overwhelming! Consumers now have a tool available to help clear the air of confusion. Cannabis can be complicated, but the Proper Cannabis Committee, a group of passionate experts, has been working to rate and review cannabis products for the past year! The Committee removes biases by testing product samples without any branding or packaging.... Read More

Processus

March 9th, 2019

Processus is a gallery/studio located in the heart of RiNo. Since 2014, they’ve been providing a co-working space for printmaking, photography, woodworking, sculpting, and digital arts. Founders and resident artists Christopher Perez and Viviane Le Courtois sought to build a place where people could come to learn, experiment, and create. It’s part studio, part classroom, and part gallery. They offer a wide range of classes and all the tools and studio space needed for whatever you’re working on. A community studio is a huge advantage to up-and-coming artists. Instead of renting... Read More

Month of Photography

March 2nd, 2019

March is the month of photography in the art community and galleries all over Denver will be hosting events to celebrate. Literally hundreds of photographers will be featured at dozens of galleries, coffee shops, and art spaces. There will be exhibitions, Q&A’s, guided tours, lectures, and so much more. A month isn’t long enough, but it does give you time to check quite a few of these off your list. Niza Knoll Gallery will be showing a series from Randall Sampson titled, 3631: A Solo Cycling Journey Across America. Sampson is a former lawyer and amateur photographer. Last August... Read More

21st Century Cannabis Education Series

February 23rd, 2019

This past Wednesday in Denver I had the opportunity to speak on an educational panel about cannabis. The event was hosted by GoFire, a digital healthcare company specializing in medication management of alternative and plant-based medicines.  This was their first monthly educational series event and the topic was “Finding Comfort in Cannabis: A Newcomer’s Guide to Getting Out of the Weeds and Into the Full Spectrum.” It was the perfect opportunity for the canna-curious individuals to hear from educated and experienced panelists within the community. The event was emceed by Wes Donahoe with... Read More

Where Have All the Festivals Gone?

February 16th, 2019

If you’re anything like me, now is the time of year to start thinking about summer concerts. With Christmas and Valentine’s Day expenses out of the way, I can blow all of my money on shows without feeling selfish until around Thanksgiving. You may have heard the news lately about some festivals that will not be happening in Denver this year. I won’t try to hide the fact that I’m a little bummed about it. Was it something we did? Were we too nice? Is Denver so wonderful that people go home and tell their friends it sucks so nobody else will come spoil the natural beauty?... Read More

The Blooming of the Buffalo Rose

February 9th, 2019

Golden is nothing if not historic. We hold on tightly to our western roots and the nostalgia runs deep in this town. Everything is also a little old-fashioned. When I was little I remember not being able to skateboard downtown because the sidewalks were still made of uneven wooden planks. True story. I’d look out the window and watch the tumbleweeds blow by, wishing I had access to a swimming pool like Jay Adams and Tony Alva. I never did become a pro skateboarder, but I have managed to learn quite a bit about local dive bars and music venues. We all find our own little niche I guess. Golden... Read More

Gallery 1505

February 3rd, 2019

Sometimes it can be hard to find the right piece of art for your particular space. There’s more to it than just finding a painting you like and hanging it any old place. You wouldn’t want your house to get that weird hotel room vibe, where the art looks obligatory. Have you ever looked at the posters on the ceiling at the dentist’s office and wondered how much thought went into choosing them? Art should be more than just a distraction to fill space. Let’s face it, while any art is better than a blank wall, some of it can seem like the visual equivalent of elevator music.... Read More
