Pioneers: History Colorado Center

Filmmaker Erika Volchan O'Conor explores four unsung Colorado heroes whose lives exemplify the role women played across the American West in championing an environment of cultural opportunity for all. Pioneers captures the social, racial and gender dynamics of a defining era in American history (1870-1970) through the stories of four Colorado artists. Join us for this extended program as we watch some of this documentary with commentary from Erika Volchan O’Conor on what inspired her to create this film and how that was accomplished. Today, their legacies live on through their art, the institutions they built, and in the progressive social fabric of Colorado.
