Just Announced: Margaret Cho – June 26

Beginning with her early days on the scene in SoCal, comedian Margaret Cho has always been the Agent Provocateur of stand up. Never one to shy away from a difficult, or even ‘taboo’ topic, there is no subject off limits. Her socially aware brand of comedy has made her both a thought leader as well as a teacher to those with open minds and open hearts.

An accomplished performer in all formats, Cho could be called the “Queen of all Media,” having conquered the worlds of film, television, books and theatre. She has three Grammy Award nominations for Best Comedy Album under her belt.

Colorado Chautauqua Association opens digital archives to the public

Preserving and sharing the community’s rich history has been made one step easier with the partial digitization of the Colorado Chautauqua Association’s (CCA) archive collection.

The archive collection at the Colorado Chautauqua consists of approximately 5,000 inventoried items of historic records dating back to the inception of the chautauqua in 1898. The archives content ranges from photographs and marketing materials to extensive information on buildings and grounds and organization operations.

Housed at the national historic landmark since its inception, the archives has been previously inaccessible to the public. As part of a pilot project to gauge community interest, a portion of the collection has been digitized with a sampling of historical photographs and printed materials now available for viewing on CCA’s website and through the link below.

The online exhibit includes items such as photographs showing the Auditorium’s original bleachers and dirt floor, program brochures from the early 1900’s as well as the first program from 1898, and more modern posters that capture speakers such as the Reverend Jesse Jackson. Visitors to the website who have additional questions are invited to complete an online Ask the Archivist form.

The cataloging and partial digitization of the archive collection has been underway for the past two years.
