Abw_web Baby, we’ve come a long way, but women throughout the country, even in the Telluride region, generally a Shangri-La, are still dogged by challenges that we can’t legislate or demonstrate away, among them, breast cancer and unhealthy relationships.

Nationally, October is Breast Cancer Awareness and Domestic Violence Prevention Month. Locally, in Telluride, to highlight these daunting issues, the Ah Haa School for the Arts has designated October “The Art of Being a Woman Month.”  Throughout October, our community arts center salutes the courageous women of San Miguel County (and the organizations that support them ) by showcasing women in the arts. 

Events at Ah Haa include bra decorating (not burning). That culminates with a Bra Invitational on October 21, featuring the men of the fire and police departments and service clubs modeling. (Can you get more metrosexual?). There’s a show in the Daniel Tucker Gallery of the mixed media work of part-time local Charlotte Jorgensen and LUNAFEST, a national touring women’s short film festival, (October 14).
