FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Art with attitude – new graffiti installation spreads excitement through Denver as part of 2014 BIG Industry Show
March 28, 2014
Summary: In the past ten years, graffiti has evolved as one of the world’s most dynamic and edgy art forms. Now, graffiti comes to Colorado in style thanks to an innovative new installation from the BIG Industry Show.
Graffiti has come a long way in the past decade. From the mysterious, politically positioned street art of Banksy in London to the work of Mr Brainwash in LA, graffiti’s reputation has slowly transformed into one of the most stylish and cutting edge art forms of our day.
Now, for the first time, graffiti is set to take Denver, Colorado by storm, as the leading 420 industry event – the BIG Industry Show, Galleria glass exhibition and High Times US Cannabis Cup – planned for this April announces its latest surprise: a graffiti installation that is set to highlight some of the best and brightest talents of this dynamic art form.
The graffiti installation blends perfectly with the ethos of the overall show, which is set to take place in the Denver Mart on April 16 thru 20. The event begins with the two-day BIG Industry show – the leading business to business event for the 420 sector. Functional glass art is then celebrated on 18 April, with the Galleria glass exhibition attracting glass artists from across the globe. The last two days of the event see the High Times US Cannabis Cup 2014 celebrate all aspects of the 420 lifestyle.
The 2014 show is set to break all previous records. It has already moved venues after the number of attendees jumped from last year’s figure of 10,000 to an expected 30,000 this year. The organizers have responded accordingly, building up the show’s offerings in line with such massive demand.
The graffiti installation, which will be run in partnership with leading spray can company Ironlak, is the latest way in which the massive five-day event is reaching out to new and alternative sectors in order to reward attendees. The trend has already seen organizers BIG announce the addition of the event’s first ever tattoo exhibition and the inclusion of the innovative Dunkxchange sneaker show.
Above all else, the 2014 show is set to be about inclusion. A wide range of crossover partnerships, such as those mentioned above, will ensure that the event offers something for everyone, catering to a vast range of tastes and interests while still maintaining the 420 lifestyle focus for which it has built up such a strong reputation.
Artists, DJs, wholesalers, exhibitors, business owners, shopkeepers, consumers, celebrities, activists, campaigners – the list of those attracted to the 2014 show is impressive. With only a short time left for attendees to buy tickets and, indeed, only a few tickets still available, this year’s event is set to truly take Denver by storm. It’s likely to be one of the biggest and most exciting lifestyle events that the US will witness this year.
