As we get ready to celebrate our City’s 150th anniversary, it’s exciting to reflect on the wonderful gifts that our City’s founder, General William Jackson Palmer, bestowed on us. This includes more than 2,000 acres of incredible parkland – which, 148 years later, still includes some of the most sweeping, majestic views in the world.  Examples of parkland gifts from Palmer include: Alamo, Acacia, Antlers, Monument Valley and Palmer Park.

Another of Palmer's amazing legacies to our community is our tree-lined city.  When he founded our city in 1871, it was a nearly treeless, arid plain. Palmer changed that by planting thousands of trees in our city. To celebrate our 150th anniversary in 2021 and carry on Palmer’s vision of a tree-lined city, we are challenging the community to help plant 18,071 new trees over the next two years.

[more+]

In celebration of Arts Month 2021, the Pikes Peak Outdoor Recreation Alliance, Fountain Creek Watershed Flood Control & Greenway District, Creek Week, and the Cultural Office of the Pikes Peak Region have joined forces once again to orchestrate the 4th annual Pikes Peak Litter Letter Project. Each year, our local Litter Letter Project produces a unique piece of sculptural art that is constructed with trash collected from public lands and waterways during Creek Week. Modeled after the national Litter Letter Project, and with permission to use their logo and concept, our local Litter Letter Project is a fun and inspiring annual event that signals the official start of Arts Month. It’s also a wonderful cross-sector collaboration between the Arts, Outdoor Recreation, and Environmental sectors that benefits the entire region!

The community is invited to participate in several clean-up sessions throughout our local trails and lands during National Public Lands Day (Sept. 25) and in coordination with our local Creek Week cleanups (Sept. 25 – Oct. 3). Participants will gather litter at several designated sites and then fill giant letters made from recycled metal that spell a different word each year. Our past words have been INSPIRE (2018), PRISTINE (2019), and RESILIENT (2020). This year’s word is: RESPECT.

Interested in “adopting” a letter to fill with your Creek Week Cleanup Crew? Email creekweeksoco@gmail.com for more information.

The litter letters, constructed by local nonprofit Concrete Couch, will be on display throughout the month of October in celebration of Arts Month. Well-sited on a berm, just off Cimarron Street, east of I-25 and south of America the Beautiful Park, the art piece is also visible from the adjacent trail.

On Friday, October 1st at 4:00PM, just before the start of First Friday, there will be a dedication ceremony for the 2021 Litter Letter art piece. The dedication event is free and open to the public, and will feature brief remarks by project partners and community leaders. Light snacks and refreshments will be provided, as well as live musical entertainment courtesy of the Curbside Culture program.

Following the dedication event, everyone is invited to celebrate the start of Arts Month 2021 by participating in the October First Friday Art Walks from 5-8PM along the Avenue Creative Circuit in Downtown Colorado Springs, Old Colorado City, and Manitou Springs. Throughout the month of October, the local community is also invited to support our Litter Letter Project though a special social media campaign on Instagram, by using the hashtag #PikesPeakLitterLetters to show us how you recreate responsibly, and RESPECT the outdoors.

Media inquiries and questions about the project should be directed to Andy Vick at andy@CulturalOffice.org.

Theresa will share personal stories about her life and explain how her gift works. She will deliver healing messages to audience members and give people comfort knowing that their loved ones who passed are still with them, just in a different way. Purchasing a ticket does not guarantee a reading.

“The Experience” brings Theresa face-to-face with her fans, as she lets spirit guide her through the audience. A video display ensures everyone in the venue has an up-close-hands-on experience regardless of seat location. “The experience isn’t about believing in mediums. It’s about witnessing something life-changing,” says Theresa Caputo. “It’s like Long Island Medium live, witnessing first-hand spirit communication.”

The highly-rated show Long Island Medium follows Theresa’s life as a typical Long Island mom with one very big difference…she can communicate with the dead. Since she cannot “turn off” this gift, messages from departed loved ones can come through at any time, which lead to spontaneous readings with those she encounters. In addition to her television show, Theresa has appeared on such programs as “Jay Leno,” “Jimmy Fallon,” “Steve Harvey,” “Live with Kelly and Michael,” “Dr. Oz,” & “The Today Show.”

In partnership with Arts Month 2021, Planet Walk Colorado Springs is sponsoring a space-themed art contest for all students from the Colorado Springs region in grades K through 12. Electronic entries will be accepted for Visual Art beginning September 1st, 2021.  The original versions of each piece must be submitted by October 8, 2021.  Visit the Planet Walk Website for submittal details, at www.planetwalkcs.org.

$250 in total prizes will be awarded, including one $75 first place and one $25 second place certificate in each category. A special $50 award for Best-of-Show will also be awarded by the judges. All contest entries will be displayed online in a virtual art exhibition.

The event will also include a self-guided inner solar system tour at the Cool Science Festival located on the UCCS campus on September 9 from 10 AM – 4 PM. The tour starts at the Planet Walk table (which will represent the Sun) near the Student Union on campus and extend as far as Mars, on the western edge of campus.  If you like the idea of seeing Mars, but not the idea of zero oxygen, food or Starbucks, visit Mars with us, not with Elon Musk!

In honor of Halloween, everyone is invited to come out (costumed or not) and walk the inner planets, experiencing the temporary planet markers that represent our amazing solar system--starting with the marker for the Sun at our display table. Selected art entries will be displayed at UCCS, near our event table (and on the Planet Walk website throughout the coming year) for all to appreciate our community creativity inspired by Space!

As we get ready to celebrate our City’s 150th anniversary, it’s exciting to reflect on the wonderful gifts that our City’s founder, General William Jackson Palmer, bestowed on us. This includes more than 2,000 acres of incredible parkland – which, 148 years later, still includes some of the most sweeping, majestic views in the world.  Examples of parkland gifts from Palmer include: Alamo, Acacia, Antlers, Monument Valley and Palmer Park.

Another of Palmer's amazing legacies to our community is our tree-lined city.  When he founded our city in 1871, it was a nearly treeless, arid plain. Palmer changed that by planting thousands of trees in our city. To celebrate our 150th anniversary in 2021 and carry on Palmer’s vision of a tree-lined city, we are challenging the community to help plant 18,071 new trees over the next two years.

[more+]

In celebration of Arts Month 2021, the Pikes Peak Outdoor Recreation Alliance, Fountain Creek Watershed Flood Control & Greenway District, Creek Week, and the Cultural Office of the Pikes Peak Region have joined forces once again to orchestrate the 4th annual Pikes Peak Litter Letter Project. Each year, our local Litter Letter Project produces a unique piece of sculptural art that is constructed with trash collected from public lands and waterways during Creek Week. Modeled after the national Litter Letter Project, and with permission to use their logo and concept, our local Litter Letter Project is a fun and inspiring annual event that signals the official start of Arts Month. It’s also a wonderful cross-sector collaboration between the Arts, Outdoor Recreation, and Environmental sectors that benefits the entire region!

The community is invited to participate in several clean-up sessions throughout our local trails and lands during National Public Lands Day (Sept. 25) and in coordination with our local Creek Week cleanups (Sept. 25 – Oct. 3). Participants will gather litter at several designated sites and then fill giant letters made from recycled metal that spell a different word each year. Our past words have been INSPIRE (2018), PRISTINE (2019), and RESILIENT (2020). This year’s word is: RESPECT.

Interested in “adopting” a letter to fill with your Creek Week Cleanup Crew? Email creekweeksoco@gmail.com for more information.

The litter letters, constructed by local nonprofit Concrete Couch, will be on display throughout the month of October in celebration of Arts Month. Well-sited on a berm, just off Cimarron Street, east of I-25 and south of America the Beautiful Park, the art piece is also visible from the adjacent trail.

On Friday, October 1st at 4:00PM, just before the start of First Friday, there will be a dedication ceremony for the 2021 Litter Letter art piece. The dedication event is free and open to the public, and will feature brief remarks by project partners and community leaders. Light snacks and refreshments will be provided, as well as live musical entertainment courtesy of the Curbside Culture program.

Following the dedication event, everyone is invited to celebrate the start of Arts Month 2021 by participating in the October First Friday Art Walks from 5-8PM along the Avenue Creative Circuit in Downtown Colorado Springs, Old Colorado City, and Manitou Springs. Throughout the month of October, the local community is also invited to support our Litter Letter Project though a special social media campaign on Instagram, by using the hashtag #PikesPeakLitterLetters to show us how you recreate responsibly, and RESPECT the outdoors.

Media inquiries and questions about the project should be directed to Andy Vick at andy@CulturalOffice.org.

Theresa will share personal stories about her life and explain how her gift works. She will deliver healing messages to audience members and give people comfort knowing that their loved ones who passed are still with them, just in a different way. Purchasing a ticket does not guarantee a reading.

“The Experience” brings Theresa face-to-face with her fans, as she lets spirit guide her through the audience. A video display ensures everyone in the venue has an up-close-hands-on experience regardless of seat location. “The experience isn’t about believing in mediums. It’s about witnessing something life-changing,” says Theresa Caputo. “It’s like Long Island Medium live, witnessing first-hand spirit communication.”

The highly-rated show Long Island Medium follows Theresa’s life as a typical Long Island mom with one very big difference…she can communicate with the dead. Since she cannot “turn off” this gift, messages from departed loved ones can come through at any time, which lead to spontaneous readings with those she encounters. In addition to her television show, Theresa has appeared on such programs as “Jay Leno,” “Jimmy Fallon,” “Steve Harvey,” “Live with Kelly and Michael,” “Dr. Oz,” & “The Today Show.”

In partnership with Arts Month 2021, Planet Walk Colorado Springs is sponsoring a space-themed art contest for all students from the Colorado Springs region in grades K through 12. Electronic entries will be accepted for Visual Art beginning September 1st, 2021.  The original versions of each piece must be submitted by October 8, 2021.  Visit the Planet Walk Website for submittal details, at www.planetwalkcs.org.

$250 in total prizes will be awarded, including one $75 first place and one $25 second place certificate in each category. A special $50 award for Best-of-Show will also be awarded by the judges. All contest entries will be displayed online in a virtual art exhibition.

The event will also include a self-guided inner solar system tour at the Cool Science Festival located on the UCCS campus on September 9 from 10 AM – 4 PM. The tour starts at the Planet Walk table (which will represent the Sun) near the Student Union on campus and extend as far as Mars, on the western edge of campus.  If you like the idea of seeing Mars, but not the idea of zero oxygen, food or Starbucks, visit Mars with us, not with Elon Musk!

In honor of Halloween, everyone is invited to come out (costumed or not) and walk the inner planets, experiencing the temporary planet markers that represent our amazing solar system--starting with the marker for the Sun at our display table. Selected art entries will be displayed at UCCS, near our event table (and on the Planet Walk website throughout the coming year) for all to appreciate our community creativity inspired by Space!
