As you may have already heard, the Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum, among many cultural and other services, is slated to be shut down under next year’s extremely lean city budget. Here’s the big cultural picture as it’s clearly spelled out in the budget:
One of our favorite things about The Big Something has been the opportunity to open windows onto our local history through audio slideshows with expert narration by staff members of the museum. In light of the budget cuts, we thought we’d ask Matt Mayberry, Director of the Pioneers Museum, to talk about some of HIS favorite things from the Pioneers Museum collection and what they mean to him and to our community.
Part 1 features objects from the collection and Part 2, which will run on Thursday of this week, features documents.
Many thanks to photographer Michael Myers who volunteered to document all the objects. You can see more of his work at michaelmyers.com.
