A Walk to Pikes Peak

2012 /
Commissioned by the Art History Program at UCCS and the UCCS Galleries of Contemporary Art, Harrell Fletcher and I lead a group of roving learners from the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs to the top of Pikes Peak. The journey took three days, students and members of the community tagged along when they could and left as they needed to. A small group of nine people were able to accomplish the entire walk. We camped overnight at a house near Manitou Springs and at the Barr Camp on the mountain. Along the way each member of the walk contributed a short lecture or presentation that related to the places we walked through. The project was co-organized by my "Walking, Art, and Place" class, offered through the Visual and Performing Arts and Geography departments at UCCS.
