Student sculptures premiered at The Mine event during MountainFilm

This past November, youth from three counties met in Telluride for the 2nd annual two-day STEAM program  involving five educational themes. Local artist Dan Gundrum along with visiting artists Brent Cain and Andy McKim were the facilitators for the students at the Deep Creek Experimental artists enclave known as The Mine and the Ah Haa School for the Arts.

The results of their fabulous and fiery collaboration could be seen during
MountainFilm at the Deep Creek Experimental evening event.
