New Art Fence To Be Dedicated at Centennial Village Museum in Greeley on Saturday
On Saturday, July 20 the Greeley Art Commission and Greeley Museums will be holding a Centennial Village Art Fence ribbon cutting and commemoration of the Monfort House renovation and exhibit beginning at 10 am. Festivities will be followed by refreshments and free entrance for the attendees into Centennial Village to view the new Monfort exhibit and house renovations.
Artist Lisa Cameron Russell has created an additional 600 feet to the existing art fence titled, “Go West” to continue the story of Greeley’s water history. The portion of the fence surrounding the Monfort house, a part of Greeley’s living history museum, displays a glimpse of Monfort family history on painted fence panels. Historic images were taken from early photos and brought to life with Cameron’s colorful, energetic painting style. This project was made possible by One Percent Water Funds, and is a culmination of efforts by the Greeley Art Commission, Culture and Public Art, the Greeley Museums, Island Grove, the Monfort Family and artist Lisa Cameron Russell.
On Sunday, July 21 Centennial Village Museum will also be offering free admission in celebration of the art fence dedication. The Village is open from 12 – 5pm on Sundays. Centennial Village is located at 1475 A St. at Island Grove Park.
