From Art to Life: Honoring the People of the Conejos Neighborhood

You’ve seen their beautiful faces on the mural at The Well created by SCOTCH! — now come and hear their stories! Leah Davis Witherow, Curator of History at the Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum will share insights drawn from Una Familia Grande: the Conejos Neighborhood Project, including the fascinating history of this important neighborhood and two indomitable people who helped shape our community: “Mama” Susie Perkins & Severiano “Sam” Melena. This 25 minute illustrated presentation will put Conejos “back on the map” and make you appreciate the vibrant, deeply-connected people that lived there.
