Bravo, Edie, on a well-written story about the Pueblo Arts Scene.
We have a second home in Pueblo and especially enjoy the First Friday events and activities at the Shoe Factory and Kadoya Gallery. Gregory Howell is a hoot and his work on the "Artery" is particularly impressive--glad you gave it more exposure.
It would be great to get your article re-printed by our Pueblo Chieftain so that more community members become aware of how a little creativity can make communities like Pueblo be so GREAT!
Being named a State Designated Creative District (under the leadership of Susan Fries and the Pueblo Arts Alliance) is huge for Pueblo. The Creative Industries are the fifth fastest growing industry in Colorado, and it is refreshing to see a grassroots effort to build a new industry (and brand) in Pueblo without depending on PEDCO or the Chamber to do it. Here's hoping that we'll see more participation/presence and vocal support for our arts scene by our Pueblo leadership.
