spacerIt was back in mid-November when students from Mountain Valley School met with other students from around the state in a cave in Telluride and made art, science and alliances.

The scholarship program was a resounding success and gave students the opportunity to discover how they could operate in any environment while learning new skills. The kids’ fabulously artful sculpture is up and running in Sunset Plaza in Telluride. But if you can’t make this weekend’s Fire Festival, not to worry as readers will be able to see the sculpture a bit closer to home when it will be on display in Gunnison later this year.

Glazed and baked and ready for FIRE! the three-headed student created sculpture will be on display at the Telluride Fire Festival this weekend.

About The Telluride Fire Festival
The Fire Festival, a 501c3 event, scheduled for Jan. 20-22, 2017 will create a free interactive fire art experience on the pedestrian plazas of Mountain Village and Telluride’s Oak Street Gondola Plaza. Like Burning Man, the Festival will feature multi-storied, fire emitting “art cars” and burn barrels, while other larger-than-life, interactive, and fiery art installations will line these public spaces. Fire dancers will also be on stages offering breath-taking performances. 

For more information about the Telluride Fire Festival, to become a sponsor, volunteer, or to submit a fire installation for consideration, please visit www.telluridefirefestival.org, or email erin@telluridefirefestival.org.
