As the owners of the old Emerald City building on 11th and Yampa streets, we would like to set the record straight regarding the art fund-raiser that was held there Saturday night.
When we agreed to allow an "art" event there, we were under the impression it was a display of local artists' work with sculptures, paintings, and videos that would be appropriate for all members of the Steamboat Springs community and visitors. We had no idea until we arrived late on Saturday evening (with our children) just what the event entailed. Had we known what was going to take place, we would not have allowed the space to be used.
We would like to apologize to the community and anyone who may have been offended or bothered by the event.
