Today's Features

  • Even after 18 years in existence, very few people know they have Art for the Mountain Community to thank for the vast array of public art that greets us at every turn in Evergreen. AMC is a dedicated group of professional artists and art lovers who come together each year to select innovative, whimsical and beautiful sculptures to welcome visitors and citizens alike to our mountain town.

  • Since its founding in 1958, the Evergreen Artists Association has been a vibrant organization promoting the visual arts with shows, member activities, scholarships, monthly programs and the annual Evergreen Fine Arts Festival.  However, for the majority of those 53 years of existence, the EAA has been homeless — with no physical structure and gallery space to call its own. That is about to change.

    On Friday, June 24, the EAA will open the doors to Main Street Fine Art Gallery next to Beau Jo’s in downtown Evergreen.

  •  Veterans in their 80s and 90s who were members of the 10th Mountain Division at its inception came to the Evergreen Lake House on June 8 to tell stories of the amazing winter warriors who changed the world and then came home to create Colorado’s ski industry.

    A full house of 250 attended the event, "A Tribute to the 10th Mountain Division." Presentations included a slide show of vintage photographs and a Tom Brokaw video, as well as a collection of memorabilia.

  • Have you noticed the new shine on familiar sculptures around Evergreen? On Friday, May 27, fifth-graders from Evergreen Country Day School paired with Art for the Mountain Community to clean and re-wax 10 of the permanent sculptures around town.

    As part of a community service day, the fifth-graders spent their last full day of school learning about AMC’s permanent and temporary sculptures, touring the 2010-11 sculpture walk, and washing and waxing their assigned sculptures.

  • Some of my first and greatest memories of Shakespeare were of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” at the Goodman Theater in Chicago. I was a youthful theatergoer — maybe 11 or 12 — and too young to be intimidated by the alleged inaccessibility of Shakespeare’s works.

  • Carved into the gentle slope of “Summit Flats” is a canyon ringed with cliffs, which is home to the small but noisy Tumbling Creek. Into the updraft, out of this alpine valley, is my choice for a good measure of my cremains to be released to the winds. While, as a first-grader, I had started to explore this waterfall of a creek, instead of fishing, it was along this cliff edge that my Forest Service trails crew, in 1962, was directed to restore the original Mount Evans Trail that connected the Shelter Meadow Cabin with the Stone Shelter at Summit Lake.

  • As with most people living with a view of the Front Range mountains, I never tire of waking to view our local peaks wearing a cap of fresh snow — even though, this time of year, the storms come and go with a magical quickness. Like most of the kids I grew up with, I enjoyed hiking, camping, riding and fishing in the forests surrounding Mount Evans and its adjoining neighbors, with all of us feeling like these lands were part of our backyard.

  • Members of the arts and business communities of Evergreen are joining forces to produce a multi-week showcase of visual, musical, theatrical and cultural delights, "Arts Alive Evergreen," from July 15-31.

    This year there will be more art on display at the Bergen Village Shopping Center, more children's theater, new jazz workshops for teens, a free outdoor silent movie, an extra week and an extra weekend, in addition to the Summerfest and Jazz Festival weekends.

  • It’s not exactly a trip to Tahiti, but divers venturing into the various underground reservoirs serving the Evergreen Metro District help keep the water system in good shape.

  •  At EDS Waste Solutions, recyclables are getting a makeover. They come in looking like a disorganized mess and go out in style.

    EDS has installed an elevated sorting station with a conveyor belt, an industrial compactor and a baling machine at the EDS transfer station and recycling center at 5801 Highway 73.
