Congratulations to Steve Turner and Patricia Limerick as Partner Leaders of History Colorado

Steve Turner, as the new executive director of History Colorado, will join forces with Patricia Limerick, author of The Legacy of Conquest and A Ditch in Time and is considered one of the leading historians of the American West and a professor of history and environmental studies at the University of Colorado in Boulder. They will enthusiastically continue the development of History Colorado. This dynamic duo will lead the transition of this state agency into a viable approach to the history of our state. The hope is that their efforts will increase the interest in this unusual museum and its exhibits. (In addition to the museum, the agency is also responsible for the administration of millions in preservation funds.) One of the first projects that Turner will oversee is combining with their neighbor The Denver Art Museum in an exhibit that blends art and artifact.  History Colorado will take in some of the Denver Art Museum’s great Western art collection when the art museum closes down for renovation of its tower building. The exhibit is sure to bring history to life in a whole new way. We look forward to seeing the work of Turner and Limerick.
