Denver's Month of Photography: Painting the Town... With Wheatpaste
This spring, we joined up with a class at the Denver Art Student's League to participate with Denver's Month of Photography. For those of you who are as yet uninitiated (as I was before this last March) Denver gets covered with street art in the form of photography.
Jonathan and I contributed about six images each to this project. This is our finished work (with the help of the rest of our team) outside of the Denver Art Student's League on 2nd and Grant St. Some of you may be bummed to find out that our late night street art escapade was totally legal. Viewing the finished work by the light of someone's headlights gave it a little more of the colorful flair of the real deal, but it was all on the up-and-up. :)

The above pic comes from one of our friends and fellow artists, Sherry Castella. Of all the pictures we submitted for the project, including our own, I think hers was my favorite.
We recently had the opportunity to participate in another wheatpasting project in Westminister (near Denver) through a Denver-based arts collective. It just so happened to work out that we decided to do one large picture for this one, and the picture that was chosen ended up being one of mine. Jonathan set the type, and the pic below shows our friends who took on the hard work of installation. Well done, team!
