As anyone who lives, works, or visits the RiNO neighborhood of Denver knows, murals are omnipresent and super popular! And now, we’re going to get our own mural by local artist, Lindee Zimmer. She’ll be doing the mural installation, with participation from local youth and community organizations in early April.
Lindee believes in art by the community for the community. Her working model that incorporates young artists and students comes out of her own early experiences. Lindee helped paint a mural with a local artist in Boulder when she was young and the experience changed her life. It sparked her mural obsession and has inspired her to include young people in her work. She says the experience plants the idea that there is potential to earn a living with art.
Cam Margera is a local photographer documenting Lindee’s mural as it goes up on the Posner Center. You’ll find some of his photos in our mural photo gallery and you can check out the rest of his cool portfolio of work on Instagram @cammargera8. You can also see Cam’s work in our Community Video Gallery, where we have a video he created for Lindee’s mural at the Five Points eatery – Birdcall.
