It's Tough to Play a Winning Hand in Telluride

Not that it isn`t most anywhere else, but, this Daily Planet Art War story in this March newsletter reports a curious skirmish.

The Telluride Transfer Warehouse in our Arts District is a weighty, signature project in deliriously growing Telluride.  Telluride Arts Council is the ramrod for the project, headed by director Kate Jones.  She has been working for years to convert the dilapidated Warehouse into a functioning $20 million dollar art space.  A conceptual design is in the books and published to our community and our lovely Planet Earth.  Fundraising of the $20 million is Ms. Jones` current, major province.

But the skirmish is some local artists complaining the completed conceptuals provide no artists` studio spaces to produce the art.

They want the conceptuals tweaked to include studios.  Though spaces to do this very manufacture is under construction 100`catty corner from the Warehouse in the Ah Haa School project.  The Ah Haa will also have locals housing in the building...another Holy Grail for artists here.  And other concerned humans here.  Maybe there`s even a resting nest for me in this Ah Haa once I sell where I`m living.  I have my current digs listed...see my Featured Properties herein...where to go next?  What will I do Sweet Jesus & Yaweh, and...?

But now Ms. Jones must answer the artists bitching about no studios included in the conceptuals as reported in the following Daily Planet story.  Though input has been welcome from any local-or-otherwise citizens before and during the production of the conceptuals...as broadcast for years by Ms. Jones in our public media resources.  Kate is re-opening this forum.

Good luck Ms. Kate Jones.

We have a ton of snow here.  Another big one hits now...come and get that white, fluffy sweet fun this March.  Or stay on the groomers...we are all good.
