History Colorado is collaborating with members of the Five Points community and the Black American West Museum & Heritage Center on a Museum of Memory project that showcases the human stories and collective memory of this important neighborhood.
Built on narratives about living, working, and growing up in Five Points, it features a mural created by artist Adri Norris in partnership with residents, artifacts from a variety of different Five Points eras, a sound installation featuring the voices of the community storytellers, photos from the community, and a soundtrack and the 2020 Virtual Five Points Jazz Festival provided by Arts & Venues Denver, KUVO JAZZ, THE DROP and Rocky Mountain PBS.
This exhibit complements the imaginative lobby installation by partners from the University of Colorado Denver that is also on view this summer.
This exhibit is part of Building Denver, a sweeping retrospective, present-day examination, and a bold look ahead at how our city has been designed and the consequences that have emerged in our physical, social, and emotional spaces. Learn more about the Building Denver Initiative →
