Colorado’s ranching history has been captured in many different art forms, from sculpture to song. Join the Vail Symposium for a fascinating look at this hard-working aspect of our past, presented in conjunction with an art exhibit of 150 paintings and 90 photos which captures the ranches of Eagle County in painting and photographs by the Vail Valley Art Guild. Presenting on Colorado history will be Colorado Historian’s Council Member and Professor at Western State University, Duane Vandenbusche. He will be joined by Colorado Mountain College instructor, Evan Weatherbie, who will provide insight on Eagle County ranching history. Finally, former Eagle County rancher Danny Williams will provide a personal perspective.
Join us after the Vail Symposium program for the opening of the exhibit of photographs and paintings by local artists of the ranches of Eagle County. More than 100 pieces of art will be on display throughout the CMC campus and many of the artists will be in attendance to discuss their work.
