The Steamboat Springs Chamber Resort Association is having a very exciting day tomorrow, we are celebrating the completion of the Chamber Legacy Statue to commemorate the Steamboat Springs Chamber Resort Association’s 100 years of service to the Steamboat Springs community. From mining to ranching to skiing, the Steamboat Springs Chamber Resort Association has continued to seek way to educate, promote and advocate for a strong and vital economy. The piece of art is drawn by Suzie Jackson and sculpted by Sandra Graves, both local artists. The piece has been installed on the 5th Street corner of the Routt County Courthouse lawn and will be unveiled on Wednesday, July 23, 2008 to celebrate our centennial. It will be a gift to the Steamboat Springs community from the businesses that have and will continue to serve as the foundation of the economic well being of this community. Please stop by and help us celebrate tomorrow evening from 5-7pm.
The weather has been changing lately and it looks like we will be getting more snow this afternoon. After a few days of wonderful sunshine, snow is back in the forecast. Not for long though, the rest of the week is scheduled for sunny skies. While it might be snowing this afternoon there will be plenty of ways to enjoy the snow from inside.
This afternoon at the Artists’ Gallery of Steamboat from 5-7pm come help us celebrate the statue “Chamber Legacy.” This statue was commissioned to commemorate the Steamboat Springs Chamber Resort Association’s 100 years of service to the community. It is in its final stages before being sent off to the foundry.
Join local artist Sandra Graves in the completion of this monumental piece. Enjoy the art, learn about the Lost Wax technique for bronze sculpture and ask the artist questions. Light refreshments will be served.
There are so many things to do in Steamboat beside snow sports, dinning at great restaurants and taking advantage of the great shopping. For example Steamboat Springs has a thriving arts community with many galleries, art shops and arts and craft stores; many display local artists. Tonight come celebrate local art, local business and the creation of “Chamber Legacy,” the magnificent statue being built by local artist Sandra Graves in commemoration of the Steamboat Springs Chamber Resort Association’s 100 years of service to the community.
“Chamber Legacy,” a full size, life-like statue of three young children playing on a see-saw, each representing a piece of Steamboat Springs’s traditional heritage – our community legacies of mining, ranching and skiing. Please join us this Wednesday, February 20th from 5-7pm at the Artists’ Gallery of Steamboat for the first of three Meet the Artists events, where participants will be able to see Graves’ progress up close and personal. Come to check out the work, enjoy the gallery and make a donation to this community project.
