CRUSH Walls is a grass rooted, week-long celebration of graffiti and street art in September. The annual event is free to the public and held in RiNo. In 2016, there were over 100 murals over 10 street blocks created by artists from around the world. Centered around empowering artists, CRUSH is committed to reflecting and diversifying the urban landscape and the unique voice of a community, bringing art out of the galleries and into the streets.
CRUSH started and finds its home in the RiNo (River North) Art District which defines itself as a community "Where Art is Made”. CRUSH celebrates the craft of graffiti and street artists who bring life to walls while maintaining the unique cultural identity in this rapidly evolving community. The annual event transforms streets and alleys into open-air galleries. They are dedicated to empowering emerging and established artists.
CRUSH raises awareness of the cultural significance and importance of art for all ages and all demographics that may not have the opportunity to experience it otherwise. CRUSH offers art inspiration through this urban craft. The organization serves as a forum for community engagement and creative expression, inviting locals and visitors to engage in this rich history and forward-thinking public art in Denver, Colorado. Join the experience during the annual event in September or visit the CRUSH Walls year round in the RiNo Art District.
Volunteers are needed and donations will be accepted.
This event is sponsored by Allstate Kaufman Family Insurance.
