It was an historic day for the Grand Mesa Arts and Events Center when workers installed a colorful stained glass panel on May 3. The panel is now permanently in place over the building's main entrance at the intersection of SW 2nd and West Main Street in downtown Cedaredge.

Typical of the community spirit which has typified efforts to construct the center's new home, the panel was created by a team of artists who volunteered their time and talents. The team included Diana (Dee) Brown of Delta and Cedaredge residents Teressa Carlton, Marc Hunsaker, Peggy Papon and Cindy Starr. In addition to the artists who worked cooperatively to create the panel, other community members contributed to the stained glass project. Cedaredge residents Barbara and Jim Allen donated glass and the use of tools and Nancy Hovde also contributed glass.

The arts center has scheduled June 15 and 16 for its grand opening weekend. And the inaugural performance in the new center will take place from 7-9 p.m. on Saturday, June 16, when David Starr takes center stage joined by mandolin player Erik Stucky and other special guests. The Saturday event will also mark the release of Starr's new CD "South and West." The ticket price of $20 for the inaugural concert includes a copy of the CD. Purchase tickets online at the Grand Mesa Arts and Events Center's Facebook page, or by calling Starr's Guitars at 970-856-2331, or in person at 250 West Main Street in Cedaredge.
