Published: May 1, 1997

Estes Park will host an exhibit of art and photography as part of the CU This Summer cultural outreach program of the University of Colorado at Boulder.

The exhibit, “Exploring Our Place in Nature,” will be shown from June 5 through Sept. 7 in the Estes Park Conference Center, sponsor of the exhibit, at 201 South St. Vrain. Hours are Thursday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is free.

The exhibit includes paintings by Eve Drewelowe and Henry Varnum Poor, photographs that convey nature’s mystical power and maplike images examining a sense of nature’s grand scale, including Lowell Nesbitt’s “Moonscape” in honor of the first lunar landing.

More than 300,000 people throughout Colorado have attended CU This Summer programs in the nine years the art and museum exhibits and music and dance performances have traveled throughout the state.

CU This Summer cultural events are sponsored by each community for the enrichment of residents and summer visitors. The host communities this year are Brighton, Burlington, Cortez, Durango, Grand Junction, La Junta, Lamar, Montrose and Pueblo, as well as Estes Park.

CU This Summer sponsorship is shared by the host communities and the Boulder Campus Outreach Council, the CU Office of Business and Community Relations, the department of theater and dance, CU Art Galleries, the University of Colorado Museum and the College of Music with support from the Office of Public Relations.
