this one was pasted up a couple block from my apartment on Colfax

Denver has been extremely fortunate to get such high-class art here along with the DNC. Andenken gallery had a show up this week called "Manifest Hope" - mostly Obama-based art works by big shots like Shepherd Fairey and Ron English. Here are my photos from the show that I attended for three of the four days it was open (with the Boom truck):

Shepherd Fairey's large piece - also served as the back-drop to the VIP party that included Sarah Silverman, Jenny Lewis, Ben Gibbard, and others.

(that's Will.I.Am - of the Black Eyed Peas)(that's also Will.I.Am - of the Black Eyed Peas)

Harrison, of Denver's own Magnet Mafia - working on a wall across from the of my favorite bands, Nada Surf - playing acoustic across the street form the gallery.

Here are more pics of the show/opening 1, 2, 3.
