Five Points Plus: Neighborhood Memory Project

Jun 25, 2021 - Nov 1, 2021


History Colorado is collaborating with members of the Five Points community and the Black American West Museum & Heritage Center on a Museum of Memory project that showcases the human stories and collective memory of this important neighborhood. Built on narratives about living, working, and growing up in Five Points, it features a mural created by artist Adri Norris in partnership with residents, artifacts from a variety of different Five Points eras, a sound installation featuring the voices of the community storytellers, photos from the community, and a soundtrack provided by KUVO radio. This exhibit complements the imaginative lobby installation by partners from the University of Colorado Denver that is also on view this summer.
