August 29th, 2017 - Denver, CO - Diego Pellicer - Colorado, an upscale Denver-based dispensary and brand licensee of Diego Pellicer Worldwide, Inc, will be hosting an Art & Glass Show on location this coming Friday, September 1st, from 5pm-9pm MDT. The event will feature:

  • Free ice cream
  • Food offered by Chuey Fu's, a Latin Asian fusion food truck
  • Event specific discounts on cannabis products

Diego Pellicer - Colorado’s CEO, Neil Demers, commented, “This event will serve as a milestone for the cannabis and art community, in which they’re able to come together to serve the public in a fun, community-oriented setting. The event started as a mural unveiling by Forrest J. Morrison, and it eventually evolved into a huge community art and glass show.”


“The mural design relies on the traditions of Art Nouveau and Caravaggio, including the framing devices and the ‘tattoo’ placement approach to decorating the architecture rather than covering it up,” said Forrest J. Morrison. “I decided to approach the mural the same way I would approach a canvas by building an image through light and color, instead of design.The mural will be an experience unto itself, inviting participation in the brand by stopping patrons in their tracks while they ask, ‘why...how?’.

Diego Pellicer’s Art and Glass show will also offer live glass blowing by some of Colorado's leading glass artists. “We will mainly focus on demonstrating the glass making process as well as producing functional glass for the audience,” said Matt Pinczkowski aka Lunchbox Glass Mechanic. “We couldn’t be more excited to have artists such as Sol Fire and Burtoni participating.”

Diego Pellicer, Westword, Satellite Exhibition Services, Art District on Sante Fe, and Clover Leaf will be sponsoring the event, which will be open to the public and to all ages. Access to the dispensary will be limited to those aged 21 years and older, and driver’s licenses will be checked at the door. “This is going to be a unique event that no one in the cannabis industry is really doing,” said Amy Phare, President of the Art District on Sante Fe.
