Event Description

Carter members and their guests have the first chance to visit Come to Colorado. Drawn exclusively from the Carter’s Fred and Jo Mazzulla Collection, this exhibition showcases 19th-century photographs including work from W.J. Carpenter, Joseph M. Collier, and William Henry Jackson. Acquired by the Carter in 1976, these rarely shown photographs document Colorado’s settlement by White Americans, and the promotion of the area as an outdoor playground in tandem with the growth of the mining industry of the late 19th century.

Free for members. No registration required. Bring your membership card to the Information Desk for admittance.
