25TH & LARIMER
Gateway to the Original RiNo Neighborhood
The new "design aesthetic" of our building... boarded up windows, is curtesy of a local homeless gentleman who decided it was a great idea to break windows & destroy artwork. When we boarded up the mope came back & smashed car windshields as well as a window at Los Chingones.... who even does that?
I feel so "blessed" the Denver City Council has made individuals feel so comfortable doing things like that in broad daylight. Thanks, for doing such a fine job spending our ever increasing tax dollars & proving yourselves so deserving of our trust by reducing the safety & enjoyment of the tax paying public... somebody needs to recall all of you self interest promoting politicos with your personal agendas for OUR city! Until the police apprehend the trouble maker, call or text Brian to arranging a buying appointment.
If it's in Denver and has been worth writing about in the New York Times... you'd find it at 25th & Larimer! This part of town is the historic gateway to the Denver's "RiNo" Art District neighborhood & is the number one pre-COVID destination in the City. Art exhibits & studio tours had to evaporate with "social distancing" but walking the neighborhood for the mural art is always entertaining.
Start your tour at the corner of Larimer & Broadway where you will find the very first public art installation in the RiNo neighborhood: the "BLUE RiNo" iron sculpture commissioned by the city decades ago designating entry into the "RiNo" (River North neighborhood).
Walk a short distance up Larimer to observe the awesome new mural art on the Ramble Hotel. Next catch the "spacy" theme on our façade (2520 Larimer) created by our very own daughter, Tiffany (a.k.a. "T-N-T" because she's dynamite). Tiff is adding another retro "space" mural to the side wall... watch as her artwork comes to life!
Of course, we'd love it if you made a purchase at Brian's studio while perusing the mural / street art which is worth seeing for four or five more blocks up Larimer!
