Call for Artists
January 17 @ 12:00 amFree
The Town of Crested Butte is requesting proposals from local creative individuals for the design of one-of-a-kind graphic art to be used as wraps for 24 new trash & recycling units that will be placed around Crested Butte. Artists will receive a stipend. The design may include photography, graphic art, or any two-dimensional art that can be digitized. To apply, you can visit CrestedButte-co.gov and click "Bids & Proposals."
Gunnison Valley is also host to several beloved annual events. A classic winter event is The Alley Loop, a Nordic ski race that doubles as a costume contest. In fall, Mt. Crested Butte hosts the famous Chili and Beer Festival. Every summer in Gunnison, a crowd gathers to watch America’s fourth-oldest rodeo, Cattlemen’s Days. There are also festivals in Crested Butte that celebrate local art, music, wildflowers, and more. Attending an annual event is a good way to connect with the culture of the Gunnison Valley. You might even create a new tradition for you and your family and friends!
