Digital Program: 2020 Scholar Series: Pioneer Mother Monuments
*The event has already taken place on this date: Sat, 08/08/2020
Presented by Cynthia Prescott
Registration required. Digital program instructions will follow upon registration.
In 1911, Denverites opposed plans for a Pioneer Monument featuring a Plains Indian warrior towering over white settlers. A century later, Colorado Springs residents rejected a conventional covered wagon monument in favor of a modern design celebrating cultural inclusivity. Cynthia Prescott will recount 100 years of pioneer monument controversies in Colorado, and then invite you to walk outside and view the statues outside the Pioneers Museum with new eyes. http://www.cspm.org for zoom link information.
