The Bone Wars of the late 1800s and Broomfield’s fossil finds come alive in this partnership program with the Denver Museum of Nature & Science.
Science and history comes together to tell the real life story of drama, conflict, and suspense of the bone wars. In pursuit of the next great dinosaur fossil discovery, paleontologists resorted to lies and fraud in order to get ahead. Experience all of the competition, tension, and rivalry that existed among paleontologists in the late 1800s as you explore the cut-throat world of fossil hunting.

Frisco street mural
The Town of Frisco is seeking an artist, or a group of artists, to design and install a street mural at the intersection of Main Street and 4th Avenue. The mural project, located at the heart of the Town’s commercial core, is intended to inspire hope and positivity, celebrate the resiliency of the Frisco community, and add creative vibrancy to enhance the pedestrian experience. The budget for the artists’ compensation for the mural is $5,000. The mural will be painted directly on the existing asphalt street surface and should be designed so as not to impede pedestrian, bicycle, and vehicular traffic. Artists may apply as individuals, or as a group of artists submitting a collaborative proposal. Proposal packets must be submitted via email to the Town of Frisco Public Arts Selection Committee at FriscoArts@TownofFrisco.com
