Colorado Panorama: A People’s History

Artist Barbara Jo Revelle has taught art in many places around the country for over 30 years. Her love of photography and film has received more than 30 grants and fellowships. This 600 foot long photo-based, computer generated tile mural was completed in 1991. In being considered one of the largest public art murals in the world, it consists of thousands of gray-scaled tiled arrangements to represent the faces and activities of people important to Colorado’s past. These individuals include politicians, farmers, explorers, and activists. Ms. Revelle also included many controversial historic figures, from labor activists to individuals such as Kit Carson (participant in the genocide of Native Americans). It can be interpreted that the tiles, similar to the people’s history, are blurry when seen up close, but becomes clearer when we take a few steps back.
