Description from Justin Fuller:
“Denver Music Company is a fictional / pop-up record store that was created as an installation for Create Denver Week in April of 2010. The project aimed to highlight the unique history of the music scene in Denver and the Front Range of Colorado. Everything was created from scratch, including the logo, the storefront, several silkscreened prints to decorate the shop, a 50-page zine, buttons, stickers and record bin labels. An interactive listening station allowed people to hear a variety of music created by Colorado artists over the years.”
The props to create this installation are really great. Everything is adorned with hand drawn typography.
“A record bin was filled with more than 150 vintage and new vinyl LPs by local artists or artists / albums that had a significant connection to the area.”
Justin silkscreened genre labels and 12” x 12” posters… Some of which were for sale during the show.
“Center Channel: A Totally Incomplete History of Colorado Music” was distributed for free in front of the store. His 50-page zine went quick (the photo of the storefront had an empty rack!)…
We’ve traversed the country – and even drove a little further than the country is wide. We started in Massachusetts, stopped at Niagara Falls, Chicago, Badlands (South Dakota), Seattle, and Portland. Now we are settled, finally, in San Francisco. I love it here.
