    Eldorado Canyon SP Presents Art in the Park

    ELDORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Join Eldorado Canyon State Park for an artist reception and concert on Friday, July 15 starting at 6 p.m. at the park’s visitor center.

    The park will host an hour long reception for Rachel Znerold, artist in residence at the Eldorado Springs Art Center. Znerold’s art is inspired by the beauty of Eldorado Canyon. Pieces of her work are also currently displayed in the visitor center.

    Rachel Znerold grew up in rural southwestern Colorado. She knew early on that she was different. She saw dazzling beauty in decomposing logs and scrawled wild designs on her sneakers. Now, as a painter, a one-of-a-kind eco-fashion designer, performance artist and writer, Rachel makes her life out of making art.

    Please join us for the evening reception welcoming Rachel Znerold, followed by the music of Richards and Rock and Friends. These local musicians will entertain you on the visitor center patio with a combination of jazz, rock, and casual music.

    An $8 daily parks pass or annual parks pass is required for all vehicles entering the park. The event is free and donations for the musicians will be appreciated. For more information on this or other events this summer, including Junior Ranger and Toddler programs, please call the park at (303) 494-3943.
