"Sophisticated yet never dull, DiNK sources talent that has both wit and grit, with topics ranging from social justice to the antisocial and everything in between." More than art, displayed works include published books, manuscripts, zines, paintings and graphic novels. DINK provides an outlet for a talented cast of independent artists, creators, urban and tattoo artists, zine creators and graphic novelists to showcase their work for two days in the Mile High City each representing the counter-culture and the independent spirit of art in its many languages and styles.

Lifestyle | Music & Art Pioneers Come Together For A Collaborative Gallery Opening Red Bull House of Art Synesthesia

The Red Bull House of Art Synesthesia Galleries are a celebration of multidisciplinary artists in Denver whose creative sensibilities have led them to express themselves through fine art.  We are bringing together visual artists and the musicians who inspire them.  Each visual artist will present their original works and the musicians will perform live in an immersive, abstract experience that brings the creative process full-circle.  

In Denver, the intersection of art and music will take place on Thursday, November 12th with a curated roster of 6 local, visionary artists and 6 local, live performances.  Hosted at Exdo, 1399 35th Street, the innovative gallery space is set to unveil the exclusive works of Jon Strieby, Thomas Evans, Jaime Molina, Matt Alberts, Andrew Hoffman & Jesse Frazier.  This is the first time these works have been exhibited in public. 

The public gallery opening is Friday, November 12th from 8pm-12am. Unlike most gallery shows, Synesthesia will feature each artist creating live during the event.  The first exhibition kicks off at 8pm.  It is free & open to those 21 and older.  For up-to-date information about Red Bull House of Art Synesthesia, visit win.gs/HOADEN or
