BRINGING BIG ART TO A SMALL TOWN
It’s not every day a festival gets voted 65 out of the top 200 fine art festival in the nation. With Breckenridge’s Arts District and all the events, galleries, artists and artisan classes BreckCreate brings to our little town town, it’s no surprise one of the best art festivals in the country would take place here in Summit County. We are surrounded by wonderful art on a daily basis, and this weekend, there will be even more art to take in than any other given day. At the Breckenridge Main Street Art Festival this Saturday, August 5 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., there will be over 80 high quality, original artists in 13 categories, including ceramics, mixed media, fiber, jewelry, painting, wood, glass, sculpture and more.

A MOST IMPORTANT FILM
In 2006 filmmakers of “An Inconvenient Truth” followed former presidential condidate Al Gore on the lecture circuit as he campaigned to raise public awareness of the dangers of global warming and calls for immediate action to curb its destructive effects.
A sequel to that film, called “Truth to Power” just came out July 28, and will be screening here in Summit County at the Skyline Cinema in Dillon this Friday, August 4. “Truth to Power” follows the efforts made to tackle climate change and Al Gore’s attempts to persuade governmental leaders to invest in renewable energy. There is no better time to revisit these efforts, especially after President Donald Trump’s withdrawal from the Paris Climate Agreement this year. The film addresses this withdrawal, placing Trump as one of the main antagonists of the efforts made to stop climate change. The film will start at 7 p.m. and tickets are $7.
