ABOUT DENVER WALLS
This international series of festivals was created by Jasper Wong in an effort to beautify cities and cultivate a build a bridge between local artists and their communities. DENVER WALLS will become a part of the globally recognized WORLDWIDE WALLS (FKA Pow! Wow!) series of street art events, which since 2010 has brought murals to public spaces in 19 international cities like Honolulu, Seoul, Washington DC, Taipei, Doha, and Tokyo. Because of its global presence, WORLDWIDE WALLS has become the top of the mural festival programs. Spaces in the festival are highly sought after by artists and tourists alike.
DENVER WALLS will be woman and immigrant-owned with local artist Ally Grimm (A.L. Grime) spearheading the project. She aims to bring her passion for arts, technology, and equality to the project to reimagine the possibilities for Street Art in our city.
DENVER WALLS seeks to create an annual event that brings high-impact art to the Denver community. We want to build a program that puts our city on the map as the next major Art Mecca of the United States and eventually of the world. We aim to take a future-thinking approach to street art, bridging the gap between art and technology while supporting, uplifting, and educating our local community.
We aim to celebrate diversity and individuality both in the arts and in our communities. By bringing together creatives of different backgrounds and mediums, we can broaden the spectrum of arts and culture in Denver while establishing a safe space for young artists to develop.
We acknowledge that Denver was built on stolen land and that the art culture has been developed largely by Indigenous and Hispanic communities. We seek to honor the people who paved the path for today’s artists while ushering in a new era of creativity for the diverse populations flocking to our city.
