NEA Big Read: Dog Evolution

The Ute Indian Museum is partnering with Montrose Regional Library District for the National Endowment for the Arts Big Read program. Learn about dog evolution and the importance of the dog to Native American cultures. The lecture will be followed by craft activities and a screening of The Call of the Wild starring Harrison Ford. Free museum admission for the event.
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!
