An Evolution…Looking Towards the Future

An Important Announcement, A Difficult Decision. …And, An Evolution.

Rocky Mountain Arts has made a difficult decision to cancel the Telluride Fire Festival for this December. Regrettably, San Miguel County will not permit the Festival to use the recently paved road at the end of the box canyon. As we no longer have an outdoor location which is suitable for large-scale flaming art, we’ve been left with no alternative but to end the Telluride Fire Festival. It’s been a great run for the past eight years.

We want to express our sincere appreciation for your passionate participation. We understand that many of you were looking forward to this event, and we thank you for your enthusiastic support.

We will keep you informed of any developments, including potential rescheduling or new locations.

Please do follow us on our journey as we continue supporting education in the arts through workshops for youth and adults.

We wish to thank Michael Mowery for this beautiful image pictured above.

With Love & Gratitude,

Erin Ries, Executive Director
Chris Myers, Board President

We’re seriously excited about the Youth October Sculpture Build!

Here’s the scoop!

Dates: October 7, 8, 14, 15, 21, 22, 28, 29.

Expert artists/builders and an architect guide the students during the entire program. Participants are involved for as many days as they wish. The final sculpture will be on display in Telluride, Norwood, Nucla, and Naturita for part of the year. Participants will be named on signage with sculpture. Transportation, food, materials, and all safety gear provided.
Advance sign up was required for students coming from Nucla, Naturita, and Norwood to confirm transportation.

OUR EXPERTS: Keith D’Angelo, Niel Ringstad, and Sherri Harvey

They have guided the students during our discussions about this sculpture creation.
