If the trying times of the past decade have given us anything it has illuminated the cause and effect  offered by a failing capitalistic, credit driven structure, an indifferent government and the unsustainable business practice of big business. It has enlightened the awareness of our “spending power” as consumers , and how we fund through omission or commission the degradation of the environment, and the neglect of basic human rights that we take for granted in the bubble of the United States. We have sacrificed the civil liberties of those people in countries less fortunate to save a buck, in order to sew together the illusion of success with convenient possessions… things. But these steps are not set in stone, our habits not uncontrolled, our mindset not driven by necessity but by choice. We have a choice to begin to make decisions, daily, to reincorporate the worldly effect of our actions. And the choice begins within each of us.

At MegaFauna we have taken dramatic steps to grow the operation of creative design, print production, cut and sew and retail facilities. These steps are directly targeted to impress upon the consumer consciousness the importance of sharing in this fight together to live freely and independently. We started with the idea that we are not like the MegaFauna species of the past. We are aware of our actions, we control these actions and their effect unlike any other species or civilization in the history of the world. We are all MegaFauna and it is our fight together.

We offer a more localized experience offering Made in USA, Made in Colorado design and products that benefit directly the Country, The State, The City, The community and the artists who strive daily just to offer a more sustainable consumer path. This path enable growth for themselves and in turn ripples the consumer cycle back into the community. The structure at MegaFauna supports these artists directly and provides a platform to create and complete the cycle of consumption; driving forward the evolution of art, apparel and local design management through an indiscriminate range of products and services. We offer this because this is what we believe in, it is who we are. We live, thru feast and famine, by this method to sustain ourselves and our families. With this hope thru and concerted action we ask active participation from you who have the power to support local creativity and all of its offerings.

Thank you for supporting local creativity and the community of creators wherever you may live.

Join MegaFauna Daily Monday thru Saturday 11AM to 9PM, Sundays until 7pm.

Westword: Art and Culture: It’s a MF Art Show

By Moon Light Speed, at MegaFauna.

John McCaskill of the Upper Larimer boutique/gallery MegaFauna got his start at Derailed Ink, a screen-printing business, and printed work — more specifically, exquisitely crafted band posters — is still one of his passions as a retailer. No surprise, then, that McCaskill has chosen to showcase posters and artists in the first of what he expects to be a yearlong, traveling series of It’s a MF Art Show exhibitions featuring different aspects of MegaFauna’s creative stock.

“The goal of these shows is to open the public’s opinion of art to include more than just visual arts; accessories, apparel, design, music, performance pieces all encompass the range we embrace as ‘art’ at MegaFauna,” McCaskill says. “We hope this brings more awareness toward art and, of course, helps garner support for independent creatives everywhere.”

A dozen local artists, including both new and established faces, will offer unique and affordable graphics representing local and global acts alike. The show kicks off with a party from 6 to 10 p.m. on Thursday, January 10 at MegaFauna and the adjacent Meadowlark; food, drink and music will be part of the package. Posters will then remain on view at both locations through the month of January.
