No matter the time of day, the new mural and lights at Denver’s 38th Street Underpass are a sight to behold.
Where 38th Street passes under Blake Street in the River North Art District (RiNo), the concrete jungle framing each side of the street was once an unsightly mess. But thanks to the crews of So-Gnar Creative Division and Knomad Colab, as well as community volunteers, the 38th Street Underpass area has been completely transformed.
Sanctioned by RiNo Art District and supported by Guiry’s Paint and Blue Moon Brew Company, local mural painters from So-Gnar tackled the remaining wall of the underpass in mid-November, roughly a year after they painted the first side. Approximately 240 volunteers from the community contributed to the beautification project.
Then, lighting artists Knomad Colab stepped in to create an artistic light display that would illuminate the underpass with colors and designs at night.
