    We’ve been getting a lot of work local shops have been creating for the DNC. The one glaring exception is the official credential the DNCC contracted to local designer Kristi King. If someone could get this to us, we would love to share them. Send them to the[at]denvertegotist.com.

  • Art Meets Democracy With Manifest Hope

    / Comments (2)

    What do you get when you combine 10,000 feet of gallery space, more than 80 local and national modern and contemporary artists (including a few of the Denver Egotist faithful), and the Democratic National Convention? You get the Manifest Hope Gallery, a four day show highlighting the central themes of the progressive grass-roots movement – Hope Change, Progress, Unity and Patriotism.

    (Click image to view detail.)

    As explained on their site, Manifest Hope will showcase some of the finest modern contemporary artists, acclaimed NY painters and sculptors, activated grass roots and street artists, and present the most widely recognized pieces seen throughout the 2008 presidential primary campaign, as well as newly commissioned works and previous works on loan from some of the United States top artists.

    If David Choe’s work (pictured here in progress) is any indicator, this will be one of the top art events of the DNC and possibly the year. (WE JUST ADDED A REVIEW OF THE SHOW. READ IT HERE)

  • Undrcrwn Obama Tshirt @ the 400

    / Comments (10)

    Premium apparel company Undrcrwn is bringing its basketball-inspired graphic twist to Denver for the Democratic National Convention during the week of August 25, 2008. “Nothing is more basic than our right to vote for our President and we wanted to put our own visual look to the November election to show our support. For inspiration, we brought back Vince Carter’s dunk over France’s Fred Weiss in the 2000 Olympics and combined it with Barak Obama’s smooth game” says Bryon Sheng, Uncrwn’s marketing director.

    Undrcrwn has partnered with local Denver retailer The 400 to offer this tee to the public during the Democratic National Convention.

    We dunno guys, Undrcrwn has done some really cool stuff in the past, but this is kinda janky.

    Also, how on earth is this gonna get screenprinted? We count like 20 colors and as many gradients. Iron-on?
