March 9, 2022 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm$25
History Colorado is excited to offer the return of our professional series – Museum Basics. In this session, learn about managing, protecting, and using your photographic collections. This series is designed for those who work or volunteer at cultural institutions such as museums, libraries, and archives, as well as graduate students interested in the same line of work. Courses will cover a variety of topics and are perfect for those looking to gain a better understanding of the basics of working in cultural institutions. The 2022 course schedule is: Loans, Exhibits, & Insurance (January 12), Photographs (March 9), Programming & Collection Activation (May 11), Objects as Teaching Tools (July 13), Patron Services (September 14), and Digitization & Metadata (November 9). Participants may purchase an individual class, an individual annual pass, or an institutional annual pass (for 3 to 5 staff and/or volunteers representing a single institution). Annual passes include all six 2022 course offerings as well as a Museum Basics binder to store course materials.
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!
