Second Saturday: RiNo galleries show support for Japan, food trucks and local artists
RiNo's relatively new Second Saturday phenomenon continues to gather steam tomorrow, with gallery open houses and openings at Wazee Union/Walnut Workshop, Plinth Gallery, DesignHaus Denver, Crema Coffee House, Ice Cube Gallery, Pattern Shop Studio and the Laura Moretz Studio at Taxi. Depending on where you land, there will be food trucks and live music, to boot, as well as the official afterparty at Jake's. But perhaps the hottest spot on the RiNo strip will be Tran and Josh Wills's Super Ordinary Gallery, which is hosting a special Japanese Earthquake/Tsunami Relief Poster Show and sale in conjunction with Bored of Directors, featuring donated works created for the occasion by local graphic designers.
100 percent of the proceeds will go to the American Red Cross for relief efforts in Japan; live music by The Postman and sweets by Pastel will make a visit there even more worthwhile. And the work offered for sale is edgy, stylish and to the point. Here's a preview, for your viewing pleasure:
