Take an artistic journey through the state of Colorado beginning with the first artist explorers and wild west characters to settle the state. This catalogue feature a timeline beginning in 1805 with the advent of the steam locomotive up through contemporary times. Also, great stories of the earliest artists, such as John Dare Howland who arrived in 1859 with news of the gold rush, spent a winter in Central City looking for work and nearly starved to death until he and a violin-playing friend start a musical duo and entertain miners in the camps, earning enough to stay alive. Howland goes on to the Denver Artist’s Club.
