Art and History Collaboration with High School

Walter, Orval and Lucille spent Tuesday afternoon at the CKHS presenting stories about selected artifacts to grades 7 to 12. The students took notes about the stories that they heard and will write about what they learned. These stories will be presented to the museum to enhance our displays.

Today local artists will spend the afternoon making a presentation to the students. On Friday, students will go to the Poundmaker Interpretive Center to see the area where the 1885 Battle (or Resistance) of Cut Knife Creek took place.

This interchange of ideas is the beginning of a great partnership between the high school and the museum, local artists and historians.
