Introduction and Hello! (UPDATED JUNE 2023)

Hello and welcome to the Green Box Arts Audio Tour! My name is Jessica Kahkoska and I was delighted to be a 2022 Artist-in-Residence at Green Box Arts. 

My artistic work mainly deals with stories of the West, as I am deeply inspired by Colorado as my home state. I am inspired by using research-driven processes that celebrate community collaboration and new ways of thinking about true stories and how we tell them.

While I'd initially conceived this tour as a more traditional, by-the-books tour, my time in Green Mountain Falls has shown me that there are so many things to see and learn here -- about public art, buildings and houses, community experiences -- and a lot of different ways to discover Green Box and this special campus.

As a result, this tour is less of an instructional "follow me" and more of a patchwork quilt of living stories, told by the people who know them best. You will hear from curators, pastors, children, and of course, me. 

My favorite thing about this project is that it is living and breathing. Do you have a story? Want to get involved? Reach out to me at jkahkoska@gmail.com.

Thank you and enjoy your time at Green Box Arts!
