1952 Kenmore vac rocketship

Jimmy Descant is known as the Rocketman. He was first seen in Denver at the Cherry Creek Arts Festival, 2004-2008. Now, I’m wondering if he wasn’t the catalyst for this trend in upcycling art and retail. Unconsciously, I was looking for Descant’s work this year. I remember staring in amazement at his rockets and wall art in the past. He was not there this year but, everyone else was, and they all wanted to be him.

An innocent walk from Dazbog’s coffee on 17th Avenue, stopped me in my tracks. A new gallery, Leon. It was a former portrait studio.  Wow, look at this art, I told my friend.

The opening was early July. Alas, this show leaves on the 31st. Make the time and effort to see this show. Children will love it too. It is whimsical, brilliant, colorful, vintage assemblages that are amazing.

Jimmy Descant is a New Orleans refugee living in Salida, Colorado today. He bills himself as a severe re-constructivitist. Rocketships are his specialty.
