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.

Evolutions CFE

(through July 20, 2024)
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.

Where: Golden Community Center, 1470 10th Street, Golden

Jefferson County Public Health would very much like to hear from you about your local food system experiences and priorities, in order to improve food access and production in Jeffco.

We will gather in a shared space for learning, collaboration, and discussion. Lunch will be provided. Spanish/English Interpretation will be available upon request.

Over the past few months, the Food Systems and Policy team at JCPH has taken a close look at the different pieces of the food system in Jefferson County, including where food is produced and accessed (farms, community gardens, stores, food pantries, and more). They have also surveyed county plans and zoning regulations to better understand how existing policies and zoning regulations may help or hinder our community’s access to nutritious foods. They will share what they’ve learned, but most importantly, they want to hear from YOU about your experiences and priorities to improve food access and production in Jeffco.

Please contact Lisa Long at with any questions.

Please REGISTER by May 1 so we may plan for food, interpretation, and other accommodations: JeffCo Community Listening Session Registration
