Seeing this wonderful production at the DAM last month caused me to make another special trip to Denver from Colorado Springs just to take in most of the sites for this exhibit. Although I've seen his work sporadically, I didn't know anything about the artist, his life as a local resident, or the development of his style. You've given us a treasure.

Thank you for an excellent program and especially for the mention of my father, Paschal F Quackenbush. I was only 9 when Allen True died, but I remember visiting him and being allowed to play outside with his horse, who, if I remember correctly, was named Casa because he was as big as a house! I will order the program when I watch it again and get the info!
