THE STORY PROJECT: 36 Views of Pikes Peak

Presented by UCCS Galleries of Contemporary Art at GOCA 121

GOCA is excited to host a special engagement of 'The Story Project' as part of the 36 Views of Pikes Peak exhibit. True, personal storytelling without a script by four storytellers from the Pikes Peak Region!

36 Views of Pikes Peak is a collaborative project between the UCCS Galleries of Contemporary Art, KRCC's 'The Big Something', and the Pikes Peak Library District. Based on famed Japanese printmaker Hokusai's 36 Views of Mt. Fuji, the project aims to explore the myriad ways that the iconic Pikes Peak mountain draws the region together and defines us. Hokusai's '36 Views of Mt. Fuji' series of prints use Mt. Fuji as a way to unite portrayal of multiple facets of Japanese culture in the early 1800's. Mt. Fuji is seldom the primary subject of the compositions in the series, but rather a backdrop to genre scenes-an early conceptual premise (inspiring the Impressionists, among others) with which to narrate a much larger story about class, society, values and aesthetics.

STORYTELLERS:

Noel Black (KRCC Producer & Poet)
Tini Campbell (Pikes Peak Bike Tours-Challenge Unlimited
Price Strobridge (Pikes Peak Poet Laureate Emeritus)
Mikki Wendt (Soldier, US Army)
Jesse Wilson (Actor, Empowerment Coach, & Teacher)
