Center for Railroad Photography & Art Winners

Every year, the Center for Railroad Photography & Art holds a contest that attracts some of today’s finest and most creative photographers. Those who placed in this year’s program will have their photographs displayed at the Colorado Railroad Museum in Golden into 2023. The Museum’s goal is to showcase not only Colorado’s rich railroad history, but also the many creative people—around the world—who keep the spirit of railroading alive and well in the 21st century.

Without Words
Shining a spotlight on how railroaders have communicated over the years using sight, sound and code

Beebe and Clegg: Their Enduring Photographic Legacy

This exhibit focuses on Lucius Beebe who—joined in 1941 by his life partner Charles Clegg—introduced railroad photography and the world of railroading to popular audiences in the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s. Employing dramatic images and sweeping promotional strategies, this dynamic duo created more than 30 books on railroading and Western Americana, demonstrating that the railroad serves the nation as an icon of the American experience.
Romance Along the Rails: The Phenomenon of Beebe and Clegg
In this companion exhibit, learn more about this fascinating couple and view correspondence, Colorado-specific publications, and other physical reminders of their love affair with Colorado and its narrow gauge railroading legacy.

Evolutions CFE

The Evolutions CFE show never disappoints with the variety of entries. The jurors have made their choices of the quilts that will be in the exhibit, and we think you will be surprised and delighted with the quilts.

Thorns & Spikes | The 4 Common Corners

(through July 20, 2024)
It is amazing to see what comes from a creative group of people challenging each other to create original quilts for a theme. They take 4 months to develop and create their work for each theme. This exhibit is the result of the THEME challenge "Thorns and Spikes" for a group who all live in the Common 4 Corner states, and the only rule is that their work represents these states.

These drugs are a potential source of supply for illegal use and an unacceptable risk to public health and safety. The DEA holds the National Drug Take-Back events in April and October of each year.

This one-day effort is intended to bring national focus to the issue of increasing pharmaceutical controlled substance abuse.

Many of us have an unhelpful inner critic, a painful habit of thinking that not only disturbs our mental peace but also holds us back from being the person we want to be or living the way we want to live. Through meditation and Buddha’s wisdom we can learn to recognize this inner critic in our life and our relationships, and let it go. By coming to accept ourselves happily within an understanding of our enormous capacity for freedom and growth, we can awaken a source of deep fulfillment from within.

History of Outdoor Gear in Colorado

When: 1:30-3PM
Where: Golden History Museum, 923 10th Street, Golden, CO

No escape to nature is complete without a trip to an outdoor recreational store or a browse through online offerings. Nowhere is this more true than in Colorado. Holubar, Gerry, and Frostline are among the outdoor companies that helped establish Colorado as a hub of innovation for the outdoor industry after World War II.  Rachel S. Gross argues that the success of these outdoor gear pioneers was predicated not just on creating functional equipment but also on selling an authentic, anticommercial outdoor identity. In other words, shopping for the woods was also about being—or becoming—the right kind of person. Demonstrating that outdoor culture is commercial culture, Gross examines Americans’ journey toward outdoor expertise by tracing the development of the nascent outdoor goods industry, the influence of World War II on its growth, and the boom years of outdoor businesses.
