Book Signing: Allen Tupper True: An American Artist
Wednesday, September 30, 7:30 p.m.

Victoria Tupper Kirby will be on hand for a book signing and lecture for the recently released Allen True biography. The book was researched and written by True’s eldest daughter Jere, former reporter for the The Denver Post and publicity director for Aspen, Colorado and granddaughter Kirby.

“‘Allen Tupper True: An American Artist’ recalls, in amazing detail, True’s own creative awakening and his crucial role in creating and recording the region’s rich history. True’s inclusive vision brought overdue dignity to the region’s earliest inhabitants. His groundbreaking murals of Western vistas made the region a more beautiful place and served as giant documentaries about a disappearing way of life.” — Ray Rinaldi, Denver Post

These works traveled nationally and brought him much fame and some patronage. By the mid-1910s, he had moved on to establish himself as Colorado’s top muralist.
