On Thursday, a big announcement was made regarding a statewide effort to bring more affordable housing to artists in rural mountain towns. Colorado Creative Industries has selected Paonia over Carbondale to receive money for the northwest region's initiative.

This week’s episode of Curated revolves around the theme of the 46th annual Carbondale Mountain Fair: Water. First, we go behind the scenes of the fair to talk with the Carbondale Arts’ executive director and a volunteer pegged as the next generation of Mountain Fair. We also hear from two Standing Rock water protectors and local music from the band Let Them Roar.

Although Carbondale Arts has been around since 1974, they're not slowing down. The organization is developing some exciting projects. Executive Director Amy Kimberly and Board Chair Pam Rosenthal discuss the organization's upcoming plans.  

Amy Kimberly, executive director of Carbondale Arts, and Regna Jones, member of the Carbondale Arts' Board of Directors, discuss the organization's events and programs.
