Hands down, it was the coolest art display I had ever seen. For a minute, I actually thought it was really Leonardo Dicaprio walking down the street.

While tours are mainly taken by musicians, authors, and dancers, Dennis Flint High Country Art Firm applied it to their line of work. On February 1st 2012, Dennis Flint High Country Art Firm launched the first ever ‘art tour’, taken by modern artists from around the globe. The concept of this specific tour was unique, for it made the streets of America its studio.
Beginning the trip in its’ home Florida, Dennis Flint High Country Art Firm displayed 16 pieces of artwork in Miami’s famous Lincoln Road. Its founder, and main artist, Dennis Flint created all the pieces in this specific display. His avant-garde modern style art pieces caught the attention of very lucrative art buyers such as Ivan Kofman. “Originally from New York, I came to Miami on leisure. I have always had an intense appreciation for valuable art work, and I know fine art when I see it. I loved how Dennis Flint displayed his art on such a public square, and his character is undoubtedly portrayed through his work. I paid 6,000 for my piece of art, and I am certain that it will be worth much more in the years to come,” says art buyer Ivan Kofman.
When pieced together, Dennis Flint High Country art pieces told a very profound story. The artists of the Dennis Flint High Country Art Firm create individual art pieces, that coincide and are displayed together to tell a story. By mid January, the international artists of the Dennis Flint High Country Art Firm arrived to Manhattan, the big city. In New York, the artists displayed their work right outside the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the 23 pieces told the story of America’s current Recession through its’ imagery. It is crucial to note, however, that Dennis Flint High Country Art Firm pieces of art must be read into as a whole, and their story cannot always be understood at first glance. The display at the MET geared in a lot of attention, and was even the subject of a news story for a freelance videographer.
By New Years, the group arrived In Colorado. There, Dennis Flint High Country Art Group displayed its art on the Aspen ski slopes. As skiers skied down the slopes, they saw Art pieces displayed down the mountain. From the ski lift, Skiers could make out the picture that the 29 pieces of art made; a Beach. “It was most definitely surreal seeing artwork illustrating a beach in the middle of a snow mountain. It was even cooler knowing that each of the pieces of art were done by different artist who put their pieces together to create one breathtaking display.” Says Aspen Skier Adam Justar.
By the end of January, The Dennis Flint High Country Art Group had displayed its last display on Rodeo Drive in Los Angeles. This was its biggest, and most prepared for display, and it was even a bit theatrical. Fourteen Dennis Flint High Country Art Group artists were selected to ‘wear their art’. The artists were asked to draw their favorite actor’s in life size paintings. The artists then wore the paintings and walked around Rodeo Drive, as their characters. “Hands down, it was the coolest art display I had ever seen. For a minute, I actually thought it was really Leonardo Dicaprio walking down the street.” says Beverly Hills resident Lauren Spitzer.
Dennis Flint, the creator of Dennis Flint High Country Art Group, hopes to create more ‘art tours’ like it, and expand its horizons by including new artists into the group. “This was an unbelievable experience, and I am so glad to have been a part of it. My goal was to bring together artists, and have them work towards a common goal. I watched as the artists grew an appreciation for each other’s work, as America grew an appreciation for them and Modern Art as a whole.” says Dennis Flint.
