Each year, the Creede Arts Council invites sculptors working in a permanent medium of any size to enter the Creede Sculpture Show. The deadline for entries is usually in May. A Jury Committee determines which artists’ work will be included in the show. Accepted artists will be provided with space to show and sell their work in Creede.
Over 1500 rock enthusiasts are expected to once again “circle the wagons” at the Creede Underground Mining Museum and Community Center. More than 35 dealers will be showing mineral specimens, fossils, jewelry, gold nuggets, beads, tools and artifacts. Educational displays and evening lectures fill the weekend with geological bliss!
Whether you’re an amateur rockhound or professional geologist, the Rock and Mineral Show has something for everyone!
