“Keep it Glassy” Art Show at Meadowlark & MegaFauna

They say that the purpose of art is to invoke an emotional response. If this is the case, it takes a special type of art to invoke a melee. This past July Mike McGinley approached me about hanging an impromptu show featuring his latest and greatest pop and flash art etched on glass. No promotion, no advanced notice. Within two days every piece was purchased. The mob reached such a frenzy at one point, I was up a ladder trying to hang a piece and customers were bidding and buying before the piece could get properly leveled. Such has been my experience with Mike McGinley and his art etched on window and glass panes.

December 7 at Meadowlark & MegaFauna, Mike McGinley aims to add to a new and fun-filled show presenting one-of-a-kind pop-art etched on glass with, “Keep it Glassy”.

Mike will be presenting all original interpretations of pop influenced imagery and his own creations of flash and street culture, just above the curb. Each piece will be displayed on resourced and upcycled window pane and modified doors with glass installations. Each sized properly to fit a large wall as a series OR individually for the downtown or loft crowd. There are some surprises in play for the show, including LED retro-fitted and back-lit pieces.

Boulder-based Evo Hemp of Hemp Health, Inc., will be in attendance passing health-filled hemp bar samples and cool schwag. DJ Viking Sound Machine will be in the house pushing beats and other audible treats. J Audrey Hair Studio will be offering discount cards for their in-house hair studio. As always the MF Cafe will be selling locally roasted Novo Coffee, Rocky Mountain Sodas, sandwiches by local deli’s and Mom’s famous baked treats.

Keep it Glassy 6 PM-10PM at MegaFauna and continue Keeping it Glassy until midnight in Meadowlark at 2701 Larimer in the North Larimer neighborhood of Greater Five Points.

 

MegaFauna Announces Grand Opening Of Denver Retail Store

Nearly 19 months have passed following the physical launch of MegaFauna at 2701 Larimer St in Denver Colorado. We have stumbled past obstacles, challenges and accolades pushing to solidify a foundation in the MegaFauna organization. This foundation will allow us to continue into the future as the premier platform for independent artists, from all walks. In an effort to step forward confidently into our second year of business we have pulled together a crack-pot team of marketing and public relations experts to officially announce the Grand Opening of MegaFauna to the world.

 

I would like to thank all the critics who provided the motivation when we needed and the naysayers who now aren’t around to say I told you so. Also, infinite thanks to family and friends whom have proved their metal and walked with MegaFauna every humbling step along this path. It is only through the constant support of our customers and the contributions of independent artists that we at MegaFauna continue to grow.

A portion of this concept was to continue the evolution of business and consumerism into a new ideal. Merchandising locally conceived and produced products without bending to the red tape and backwards values of big business. MegaFauna exists to bring the art of the people, to the people. This monstrous idea was to enable independent artists to create and brand themselves as a part of the whole of the Colorado art scene. The pooling of creativity and resources allows the artist(s) a platform to display, mentor and vend his/her art, apparel & merchandise.

     

 
MegaFauna exists today to serve the independent art community.

Please share this Press Release with Everyone You Know, by passing along this message you are helping independent business in this country grow.

MegaFauna Announces Grand Opening Of Denver Retail Store
MegaFauna, an artist collective featuring locally made print art, apparel and music, has announced the grand opening of its retail store and coffee shop located at 2701 Larimer Street
in Denver’s Five Points neighborhood.
Denver, Colorado (PRWEB) November 28, 2012 — MegaFauna, an artist collective featuring locally made print art, apparel and music, has announced the grand opening of its retail store and coffee shop located at 2701 Larimer Street in Denver’s Five Points neighborhood.
Named after a zoological term describing large, mostly extinct species, MegaFauna is the vision of local artist and designer John McCaskill, who conceived the idea while looking for retail outlets for his own T-shirt and apparel designs.

“As co-owner of a screen printing business in Denver for many years, I had a difficult time getting our designs
into retail stores due to the stock levels and insurance requirements for many chains and big-box stores,” said
McCaskill. “I realized there was a need for a store that supports local artists by featuring their work, and also
lowering the barriers to entry they encounter when trying to market their designs.”

MegaFauna currently works with nearly 50 independent local artists, including jewelry and apparel designers, print and graphic artists, photographers and musicians. The store also supports Denver-based programs like Feed Denver and Youth On Record, and promotes the work of local artists with exhibits, events, and sales.

For McCaskill, MegaFauna is not only a retail platform for local artists, but also a great shopping experience
for the conscious consumer. “Many megafauna species did not survive. I worry that if we don’t support our
local artists, they too won’t survive,” said McCaskill. “MegaFauna acts as a vehicle for conscious consumer
behavior by providing high-quality, locally made art and upcycled/recycled goods, and is broad enough to
include local food suppliers and socially conscious programs.”

In line with his vision, McCaskill has partnered with local coffee suppliers, roasters, delicatessens, and pre-packaged foods companies to offer a coffee shop and café with light, eco-friendly food options. The café plans to open a walk-up pedestrian window for the area’s burgeoning late night traffic. A former nationally ranked collegiate hurdler, McCaskill earned a business degree from Mississippi State University and his business acumen from years as a manager for restaurants and high-tech companies.

McCaskill says he plans to take his MegaFauna concept to other cities in the future. “We intend to carry our
brand forward as a conscious consumer-type store so that wherever we open a new retail outlet, we will feature
artists and goods local to that area,” he said.

MegaFauna is located at 2701 Larimer Street in the heart of Denver’s Five Points neighborhood. The retail store and coffee shop is open seven days a week, from 10:00 A.M. to 9:00 P.M. The café’s pedestrian window will be open Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights until 2:00 A.M. For more information, visit their website at www.megafaunastore.com,
