Full disclosure, I make several brief appearances in The Western Way, a documentary produced by Susan Loo Pattee and the Cheyenne Mountain Heritage Center that seeks to broadly decode the odd DNA of Colorado Springs and its histories through the voices of many including Colorado College Professor Ann Hyde, Philanthropist and Entrepreneur Lyda Hill, Historian Leah David-Witherow, Art Dealer Blake Wilson, Artists Pard Morrisson and Josh Kempf, and many more. What’s great about this documentary, in my opnion, is the fact that it complicates the question of who we are more than it tries to answer it. Take, for example, the way Matt Mayberry shows the direct lineage between the Pikes Peak or Bust Rodeo and what was once The Flower Parade (on which we did a story some years ago—see below).

Do check it out. All proceeds will benefit the Cheyenne Mountain Heritage Center and Rocky Mountain PBS, which will air the documentary on July 22 at 9 p.m.

The screening is tonight at Ivywild, 1604 S. Cascade. It runs from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., and it’s $8 adults, $5 kids, and $25 families.
