Westword Artopia 2016

El Salon is a proud sponsor and participant for they fun event.  Join us on Saturday, February 20, for Artopia 2016 - a night of art, culture and fashion at City Hall.

And cocktails, of course, which you can enjoy as you move through eight spaces of art installations and exhibits, curated by Jolt from Guerilla Garden, and showcasing this city's most talented, up-and-coming artists.

Whiteout, the Westword fashion show, will return to Artopia, too, featuring eight local designers and their interpretation of “The Art of Fashion.” Watch as Wilhelmina models strut down the runway in AnnaFesta, D’Lola Couture, Denver Bespoke, Elyse Rainbolt, Equillibrium, Gino Velardi, Leon Designs and YoCisco. For the first time, Whiteout will also feature a curve line and a men’s underwear line.
