Territory Days Cover Art

       The above collage, created by Old Colorado City artist Jason Baalman, imagines the Westside Pioneer as an 1800s-era sepia-toned newspaper, colored with grafitt-esque Indian petroglyphs. Similar Old West themes including local history insights can be seen in the mural hes creating on the brick wall along 25th Street at Colorado Avenue. He plans to work on it during Territory Days May 28-30, giving the festival yet another attraction. See TERRITORY DAYS schedule; and BAALMAN story.
