Colorado Edition: Indigenous artists explore representation and identity in new RiNo district murals
Every month, the RiNo Mural Program in Denver’s River North Art District pays local artists to create community installations. In celebration of Native American Heritage month, three Indigenous artists in Colorado have painted works exploring cultural representation and identity.
Colorado Edition spoke with the artists about their murals, and the connection between artistic expression and social change.
Gregg Deal is an artist based in El Paso County and a member of the Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe.
