The River North Art District has ended its relationship with the popular Crush Walls mural festival after sexual assault allegations against its founder, Robin Munro, surfaced on social media.

“It was a mutual agreement,” wrote RiNo Art District founder Tracy Weil in an email to The Denver Post.

A statement, first published in Westword, added that RiNo will be “continuing to provide paid opportunities for artists with our mural programming and new events in 2021.”

Munro, who works under the name Dread, was not specifically named in a Sept. 21 Instagram post by former romantic partner Grow Love, who accused “the founder” of Crush Walls of “violent sexual assault” after they began dating in 2017.
