The art of RiNo

Only one word stands at the nexus of adjectives when comes to describing the vibe of Denver's RiNo neighborhood: eclectic. According to Merriam-Webster: Eclectic: composed of elements drawn from various sources; also : heterogeneous While on a recent urban hike this Sunday (3/15/2015) I was attempting to communicate the hodgepodge of elements that contribute to RiNo's unique vibe. I struggled to find a theme that best expressed this vibe, but after strolling up and down Lawrence and Larimer streets, I realized it was the art displayed on the facades of the buildings that best represented the ambiance of RiNo. RiNo is short for River North neighborhood and is bordered by I-70 to the North, I-25 to the West, Park Avenue West to the South, and Arapahoe Street to the East. Below are some examples of the artwork in the area.

RiNo Art Benjamin Moore Paints Denver Technically the above picture is in Denver's Ballpark neighborhood located adjacent to RiNo. I can remember going to this building when it still was a paint store. I was about 5 years old at the time and my dad was remodeling an old victorian house on Raleigh Street and about 35th Avenue. That house was located just a few blocks from the original Elitch Gardens, and I can remember hearing people that were riding the roller coasters screaming.
