¤ Camera crews from the TV show "Exploration with Richard Weiss" will be filming in Steamboat Springs in January. They plan to do an educational program about snow. The segment before it is an educational piece on sharks and the show's producers want a local artist to create a large shark jaw made out of snow to segue from one piece to the next. The sculpture must be completed in the first week of January in a snowy location to be determined. Artists interested in this project should call Riley Polumbus at 879-0882 ext. 207.
¤ Artists are invited to submit work for the first "January Thaw Art Exhibit" scheduled Jan. 27 to 31 in the Orange Peel Bicycle Velodome, 1136 Yampa Ave. Artwork may be any medium (including large outdoor work and video) but must somehow involve "oranges, bicycles, the color orange or all three." $10 entry fee per person for up to three pieces. A portion of every fee will be donated to Bikes Not Bombs, a non-profit organization working for alternative transportation and community development.
Artwork is due at the venue on Jan. 24. For more information, call 879-2957 or e-mail email@example.com.
