4. Picasso: Visage Art Exhibit
Picasso: Visage showcases 50 works of art including 35 print originals and is an exploration not only of Picasso’s expertise over a wide variety of print media, but a continuation of questions posed by the artist himself, “are we to paint what’s on the face, what’s inside the face, or what’s behind it?” The collection is on loan from a private collection, Spaightwood Galleries in Upton, Massachusetts and from John Szoke Gallery in New York.
5. Osborn Farms Opening Weekend
Osborn Farms is proud to be the oldest continuously family-owned farm in Colorado, founded in 1861. Our Opening Weekend marks the beginning of their Pick-Your-Own Pumpkin season. This weekend celebration is filled with family-friendly activities (barrel trains, hay rides, face painting, and petting zoo) and food-stuffs from local vendors.
