Denver does several holidays well, but none greater or more intoxicating than St. Patrick’s Day. Kick off your holiday proper-like with this week’s “Things to do in Denver” March 11 to March 17
Monday – Get your work done for the week so you can play, sleep and roll around in the hay, all day, you just may…
Tuesday – Buy cool St Patty’s stuff from MegaFauna
Friday – seen . unseen | HINTERLAND
3254 Walnut Street. Denver CO, 80205. [email protected]
HINTERLAND is pleased to present an international juried group exhibition for the Month of Photography. We were happy that we had Jacquelyn Connolly (Owner of Creative Mind Consulting) and Cecily Cullin (Creative Director and Curator at the Center for Visual Art, Metropolitan State College) as the jurors for this show.
This show is will be held in conjunction with the MOP (Month of Photography Denver) which was founded by Mark Sink a couple of years ago. MOP – Month of Photography Denver is a celebration of fine art photography through collaborative public events throughout Denver for the month of March and April 2013.
The exhibition will show images that uncover the unseen or picture something seen in an unusual way. We looked for the special view through the lens or the experimental expression in the delivery or the photography-based process.
Be daring, be different, be impractical, be anything that will assert integrity of purpose and imaginative vision against the play-it-safers, the creatures of the commonplace, the slaves of the ordinary. – Cecil Beaton

MegaFauna Featured Artist: Cody Kuehl the entire month of March with “The extraordinary artwork of Cody Kuehl”
Cody’s visual reflections are often bemused by comedy and the gory details of life past present future or perceived. Cody’s extraordinary artwork reveals this full intellectual spectrum of imagery thru a range of allegorical expressionism.
Join us at MegaFauna to celebrate the anthology of momentary experience, delivered by a true renaissance artist, Cody Kuehl.
Prints starting at $10 with originals asking just $200. Several pieces were purchased on opening night so don’t let your time lapse.

MegaFauna Hours of Operation: Monday – Saturday 10AM to 9PM. Sunday 10AM to 7pm
“MegaFauna is a retail platform for artists who know how to create but maybe need a hand with the business side of things. Conscious consumers—or tourists looking to take home a bit of the square state—can sort through racks and tables of vintage tees, consignment pieces, Colorado caps, and hand-cut jewelry.” This is just a snippet of a recent article written by Daliah Singer, Assistant Editor at 5280: The Denver Magazine.
About a month ago I had the pleasure of sitting down with Daliah covering a variety of topics. Daliah was kind of enough to keep me on track, as I tend to wander during the more cerebral topics such as MegaFauna’s mission and philosophy. If you haven’t taken time to stop for boutique shopping, we are open daily with something for just about everyone. If you have stopped in, feel free to share. We can only continue grow the business for independent artists, artisans and the like, through your support.
Here’s a link to the piece for your reference: http://www.5280.com/blogs/
Thanks to Daliah and 5280: The Denver Magazine for continuing to represent independent business.

Here’s what crackin in your MF neighborhood February 18 – February
Monday: Presidents’ Day – The only important thing to note about this day is the appropriate usage of the apostrophe.
——> Presidents’<——– see it there? right after the “s”.
Tuesday: Planning for two events to be held this Summer on North Larimer. 1) NoDoCO Farmers Market 2) Urban Bazaar.
1) NoDoCO Farmers Market. We waited until the fad phase of farmers markets peaked and dropped. Then, we noticed that people still shop at grocery stores. Clearly the message isn’t getting across. Grow local, buy/trade local. If you cut out the money supply the big companies stop being big and the people take back control of their health and wealth in one transaction. Personally I think it sounds like a good idea but people tell me that I’m crazy, unlikeable and full of big ideas that never work. So this would fall in line with all that, but what IF I’m right?
Details to follow, but we are close to announcing the urban bazaar title and sponsor list. It’s a big secret so be sure to tell everyone.
