Join the Crested Butte Mountain Heritage Museum at 6:30 pm on December 15th at the Crested Butte Mountain Museum for this exciting two part evening. The evening begins with Dr. Duane Vandenbusche’s slide show on the history of the San Juan Valley mining towns. Dr. Bruce Bartleson will join Dr. Vandenbusche to add the geology of the region.

Cathy Carpenter Dea, of CLCD Productions, LLC and husband Peter Dea, longtime friend of Dr. Bartleson and Dr. Vandenbusche will join us for the second part of the evening. Cathy will share her film team’s amazing experiences shooting footage of our Sr. Statesmen and the amazing beauty and knowledge captured during the San Juan Mining Tour for an upcoming documentary entitled Breaking the Mold - Colorado Contemporaries. It is the pilot for a series that will premiere at Western on April 28, 2018, and air on Rocky Mountain PBS later in 2018. Peter will share many interesting tales from yesteryears’ classes and his recent experiences from the San Juan Mining Tour. The evening concludes with a short trailer for the documentary!
