STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — Discover an artist’s view on the research and creative process behind what’s known as the “Human Imprint” project.

Artist Sarah Gjertson will present “Human Imprint: Exploring the History, Artifacts and Role of Women at Historic Mining Sites in Colorado,” her latest project, at 5 p.m. Friday, Aug. 31 at the Depot Art Center, 1001 13th St.

At the free event, Gjertson will reveal the stories of women she discovered through this endeavor. In addition to photographs and sculptural works, this printmaking series has utilized images of women and artifacts sourced from specific historic sites and archive collections.

According to a recent Steamboat Springs Arts Council news release, Gjertson hopes this project will serve as a vehicle to start conversations around preservation, conservation, local history and the relative invisibility of women at a pivotal time in the American West.

The works for this exhibition will be on view at the Depot Art Center for the month of September.
