Travis Egedy is probably more recognized for his musical project, Pictureplane, but his roots in the visual arts world run deep. A Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design (RMCAD) alum, he has studied the craft, shown work all over Denver and was represented by Plus Galley. More recently, Egedy has started curating shows, his latest being Dimensional Rip 5, a one-night-only art exhibition held this past Saturday at the Wazee Union warehouse that showcased Denver’s top art misfits. Often viewed as a city with no identity when it comes to the visual arts, an awesomely-strange and undeniably unique style is emerging in Denver. RMCAD and Metro State students/grads, along with a few other outliers, are pushing the limits of the progressive, post avant-garde art realm that was never part of the Denver scene until recently and Egedy is right in the thick of it.  Dimensional Rip 5 has perhaps been the most comprehensive showcase of this pivotal shift in the Denver art scene thus far. I wish I had more to share but here are a few photos I snapped from the show:
