Colorado Panorama: A People’s History

The 600-foot long mosaic consists of thousands of gray-toned tiles arranged to represent the faces and activities of people important to Colorado - including politicians, farmers, explorers, and activists. The mural was contentious from the beginning because of the inclusion of many controversial historical figures: Black Panthers, labor activists, and Kit Carson (who participated in the genocide of Native Americans). Revelle views the piece as "an attempt to represent history, not whitewash it."
