by Katie Bowell, Curator of Cultural Interpretation

We’ve had many new museum updates to share over the past year, but this Saturday is our biggest one yet: we’re breaking ground on the new museum, and you’re invited!

What: The Official Groundbreaking Ceremony for the new Fort Collins Discovery Museum

When: Saturday, September 11th, from 2:00-5:00

Where: The site of the new museum, at the corner of Mason St. and Cherry St.

Family activities for all ages are scheduled from 2:00-3:30, and include clay brick making, architectural food structures, solar cookies and homemade root beer.

The Colorado State University Color Guard will post the colors at 3:15, follwed by the Official Children’s Groundbreaking at 3:30. The first 1,000 children will receive a commemorative Fort Collins Discovery Museum Groundbreaking shovel! Following a short presentation, the Dignitaries’ Groundbreaking will begin at 4:15. All members of the press are invited to attend a press conference at 4:30. Festivities will conclude at 5:00 with a presentation by Colorado State University Native Drum Group, Ram Nation.

We are so proud to belong to a community that has been supportive and encouraging about this project, and is as excited as we are to watch it become a reality. We hope you can all join us in celebrating this next big step in creating the new Fort Collins Discovery Museum.

The Indian Market is coming soon!

by Terry Burton, Digital Media Coordinator

The 2010 edition of the Fort Collins Indian Market is coming up on May 15-16. Presented by the Fort Collins Museum & Discovery Science Center, the Indian Market is two days of Native American music, arts, and crafts in Old Town Square. We are happy to once again be hosting nationally-recognized Native American artists who will offer pottery, basketry, bead work and more, with musical performances both days. The Indian Market is free and will be open both days from 10:00 am through 6:00 pm.

Start off each day with traditional drumming and dancing by Colorado State University’s own Ram Nation. Other musical guests will include singer-songwriter Kurt Humann, singer-songwriter Scotti Clifford from Pine Ridge, South Dakota, Fort Collins’ own singer-songwriter Cary Morin, and the Pura Fe Trio, based out of Portland, Oregon.

Indian Market is one of the great Fort Collins weekends of the summer — please join us!
