Seasons of the Nuche: Transitions of the Ute People
Available beginning in May 2018
Aspen Historical Society’s traveling exhibit, “Seasons of the Nuche: Transitions of the Ute People” explores the past and present of the Ute people in the American West. AHS curated the traveling exhibit from the award-winning exhibition of the same name, displayed at the Wheeler/Stallard Museum between 2012 and 2015, which was designed with input from Ute tribal members. The traveling exhibit, comprising modular display panels and interactive elements, including a tipi, will help bring the history and culture of the Ute people to communities on Colorado’s Western Slope. Grant support from The Memnosyne Institute and the Louis and Harold Price Foundation enables AHS to provide the exhibit to regional organizations to host in their communities with no rental cost, helping make the educational content accessible to the widest audience possible through partnerships with historical societies, libraries, civic groups, schools, and more. Recent hosts of the traveling exhibit include the Rifle Heritage Center (in partnership with the Rifle Branch Library), the Grand Valley Historical Society and the RE-1 school district.
