The Main Gallery will be transformed into a beautiful Wildlife Display. Pieces of canvas and metal art will showcase the rich wildlife environment of Blue Mesa Reservoir and Gunnison county. Teresa believes that the varied public lands and State Wildlife Viewing areas to include the 43,000 acres of Curecanti National Recreation area ought to be consolidated and transformed into one Beautiful “Blue Mesa National Park.” Blue Mesa Reservoir is the largest body of water in Colorado. It is a special place where people and wildlife coexist. Blue Mesa National Park would be a preeminent place where diverse and abundant wildlife and their habitat are protected for generations to come while maintaining an enhanced recreational area for people to enjoy the beauty and essence that this Rocky Mountain paradise offers. In her solo exhibition, Teresa hopes to inspire legislative momentum to create a truly new and alluring “Blue Mesa National Park” that would draw tourism to the region, already put on the map by the Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park, located downriver and captivate the hearts of the people to visit and appreciate our unique place in the High Rockies of Gunnison county.
