In 1964, the Wilderness Act revolutionized the way the United States would conserve its most pristine wild lands for future generations. Today, we continue to reap the rewards of the protection of nearly 110 million acres of wilderness areas from coast to coast, and it’s time to celebrate all that has been accomplished during the last 50 years, free to all at Imagination Celebration’s iSpace Gallery at The Citadel, on the upper level of the mall, Burlington wing.

Festivities will begin on December 3 with the Colorado Wilderness 50th Anniversary Exhibit of John Fielder’s Photos, which has traveled from the state capitol to Durango, from Craig to Gunnison, and now to Colorado Springs. This remarkable tribute to Colorado’s wild lands will be on display at the iSpace Gallery through January 13.

On December 5, from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m., meet wilderness photographer, John Fielder, for an opening Artist Reception. Meet Colorado’s premier photographer at a special viewing of his photos which capture one of Colorado’s greatest assets, its wilderness. At 7:00 p.m., the grand diversity of Wilderness in Colorado and beyond will be celebrated in a slideshow by John Fielder, complemented with fine music and commentary. The program, presented in collaboration with Imagination Celebration and the Sierra Club, honors the 50th Anniversary of the Wilderness Act and all the law has accomplished.

All festivities are free and open to the public, with donations gratefully accepted.
