50 + Artists, 1 Week, Graffiti Strikes Back! The Crush is on a mission to celebrate art, urban beautification, creativity, and culture by enriching the community through an arts festival like no other. Centered around empowering artists' creativity, the Crush is committed to reflecting and diversifying the urban landscape and the unique voice of the community. The Crush brings art out of the gallery and into the streets. A collaborative effort with the River North Art District (RiNo), the Crush establishes a new definition of what art can mean in Denver, how people experience art, and how artists connect with the public.
