The Pueblo West View

Front Row: Best bet, Performers and Art

best bet

The Steelworks Museum will open its “Imagining CF&I” exhibit series with a public reception from 7 to 9 p.m. Thursday.

First up is a large display of assorted wooden patterns, made by artisan carpenters at CF&I, that were models used to create steel machinery parts. Most of the work never has been seen by the public.

And how’s this for a bright spot? For the opening, EVRAZ Pueblo will illuminate the signature steel mill stacks that are visible from I-25.

The museum is at 215 Canal St.


performers, show your stuff

Summer’s coming. Really.

If you’re a performer or visual artist and you’d like to spend some time outdoors doing your thing — and get paid for it — get yourself to the Street Beat auditions on April 12. Musicians, actors, dancers, magicians, painters — you name the talent, there’s probably a place for it.

Those submitting the necessary forms by today will be guaranteed an audition spot; walk-ins will be admitted if time allows.

Auditions will take place from 1 to 3:30 p.m. by the grand staircase on the Riverwalk. For details, visit and click the “auditions” link under the Pueblo Arts tab, or call Becca Klock at 252-7038.


all for art

The second East Night of the Arts is set for April 12.

It’s a chance for the public — particularly East alumni and supporters — to experience an evening of entertainment courtesy of the school’s vocal and instrumental music, art and culinary students.

The evening will include hors d’oeuvres, a silent auction and a cash bar. Hours will be 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Waterfront on the Riverwalk, 101 S. Main St., Suite 400.

Tickets are $10 per person or $15 for couples. Reservations are required by Wednesday; call 549-7224.


so long, dave

David Letterman announced during the taping of his show Thursday that he will retire in 2015.

This is his 21st year hosting “The Late Show.” Before moving to CBS, Letterman spent 11 years on NBC, hosting “Late Night.”

There’s no word on who might take the 66-year-old curmudgeon’s place, but guess whose TBS contract expires next year? Conan O’Brien’s.
