Today, we were announced as one of five winners of the Westword's Mastermind Award for 2013! "Recognizing that artists need not just creativity, but money to help things go — and grow — Westword started the MasterMind Awards program in 2005, to honor the city's creative geniuses in the categories of literary arts, performance, multimedia, visual arts and fashion/design; we've inducted a new class every year since."

We are so pleased and honored to receive this distinguished award and to stand amongst some of the most wonderful people we know in Denver's art community. With big hearts, we look forward to using the award money to increase the potential for the many artists scheduled to show with us in the months to come! Thank you to our peers. Thank you to Westword for this amazing program, which affirms so many hard working hours and efforts. While I'm at it, thank you to GroundSwell Cannabis Boutique and all those affiliated with it's existence - we are deeply grateful for your contribution to Denver's cultural wealth. Lastly, another huge thanks to my partner, Danette - I can hardly describe what a phenomenal partnership we have.
