Gunnison Sunset

Our new Communication Arts/Film colleague, Julian Rubinstein, is a visiting filmmaker and author at Western Colorado University. His documentary, The Holly, was filmed over eight years in a gentrifying community in Denver and won several awards on the festival circuit. It is eligible for the Academy Award this year for Best Documentary. The film is executive produced by Oscar-winner Adam McKay. Rubinstein began filming while reporting his book, The Holly: Five Bullets, One Gun and the Struggle to Save an American Neighborhood, which was published by FSG in 2021. The book was a New York Times Editors’ Choice, and the winner of the 2022 Colorado Book Award and the 2022 High Plains Book Award.

Annual events in Crested Butte and Gunnison

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!
