We’re very pleased to announce that KRCC’s The Big Something, The UCCS Galleries of Contemporary Art downtown site, GOCA121, and The Pikes Peak Library District will all collaborate on an exhibit of the community-wide 36 Views of Pikes Peak Project during the Summer of 2014. We’ve already received a number of excellent submissions of photographs and images, which we’ll post when we’ve gathered more, and hope to receive more submissions of other project ideas (note to writers, musicians: they don’t all have to be visual). Be sure to consider the original post and guidelines HERE (REMEMBER: Unconventional images greatly preferred!) to get a sense of the whole scope of the project. You can mail photographs or images of artwork to thebigsomething@krcc.org for consideration and we’ll keep you posted on further developments throughout the year. Meanwhile, stay tuned to The Big Something for updates on the project like this 36 Historic Views of the Pikes Peak culled from the Pikes Peak Library District’s Digital Photo Archive.

    any idea how I can get a print of that 1865 view of Pikes Peak and Colorado City? I’d be willing to pay money and all…

  2. Noel Black says:

    Through the PPLD. I think it’s like $30, but don’t quote me. Contact Special Collections and give them the caption info.

    Very nice! I think the “sheep storm” and the “archer-ettes” were my favorite pics.
