    • Taking cues from the flora and fauna around us, young artists will combine natural and human-made materials—such as faux fur, reflective surfaces, pinecones, and twigs—to create masks and costumes for pretend play and animated tales about life in the Rocky Mountains. Family and friends are invited to a performative art show at the end of the week!

Bigger “Big” Thomas is portrayed by Ashton Sanders as an outsider, an Afro-punk young man struggling to find his place in society.
