Sherman Street Event Center Set for DINK Art Expo

The Sherman Street Event Center in downtown Denver will host DINK, Denver Independent Comic & Art Expo this upcoming March 25 & 26.

The event will be hosting workshops and live presentations for producers to share their work with creative minds in Colorado.

Charlie La Greca, DINK Convention Director, shares insight behind the upcoming event:

“Fan and Art conventions are a fantastic place to celebrate artists, creators, and tastemakers of this industry. However, due to the volume of consumers, and the paper product it takes to serve them, there is a terrible amount of waste that can be generated from a single weekend event. I remember witnessing the effects after the first Denver Comic Con, and while I was in wonder of what we had accomplished as a community I was thinking to myself, ‘we need to think more sustainable and responsible’ – it really had a profound effect on me.” – DINK convention director Charlie La Greca

The festival helps promote environmental friendly paper products with the Fort Collins non-profit, Trees, Water & People (TWP), whose mission is to improve lives by helping communities protect, conserve, and manage their natural resources.

The festival has noted the following artists will be in attendance including:

underground ‘comix’ legend, Denis Kitchen, Eisner award winner Nate Powell, international NY Times Best Selling creator, Simon Hanselmann, LA Times Book Prize winner, Sammy Harkham, and cartoonist for the New Yorker,  Julia Wertz.
