The 2014 Mountain Fair Poster Contest Winner is Kurtis Sparrow.

And the People’s Choice Award goes to: Brian Colley!

The winner of this year’s poster contest goes to Kurtis Sparrow (artwork pictured left).  It was a tough decision as we recieved many professionally excellent and evocative imagery from our artists. The theme this year is Wild at Heart: Celebrating Our People, Town, and Wilderness in honor of the the 50th anniversary of the Wilderness Act. Curtis Sparrow’s poster will be altered to fit the needs of our t-shirts and poster, but his design included 50 hearts, bees, a fox, and owl, a figurative Mt. Sopris, and so much more detail. The People’s Choice Award goes to Brian Colley (artwork pictured right).  His piece was incredibly detailed and professional. It is truly a work of art! For questions call (970) 963-1680.
