Boulder’s Best Kept Secret
A favorite of Front Range Forum travelers is closing its doors forever at the end of August, 2017. The owner of the Leanin’ Tree Museum and Sculpture Garden of Western Art in Boulder, Mr. Ed Trumble, at 92 years of age, feels that his work with the collection is complete, and he wants to see his art find new homes with the next generation of families, collectors, and museums.
His museum, which houses his personal collection of over 250 paintings and 150 bronze sculptures, was born out of a seven-decade passion for western art. The Leanin’ Tree Museum is truly a feast for the eyes. Don’t miss this final opportunity to experience this magnificent Western Art Collection assembled with loving care by Mr. Trumble, which is just probably one of the best Western Art Collections to be found anywhere in the world.
We have also made arrangements to tour the Leanin’ Tree Greeting Card Plant. The tour of the Card plant is a 1⁄2 mile walking tour and wheel chairs are available but you are responsible for providing someone who can push you. If you feel you will need a wheel chair, you must indicate that when you register for the trip.
The date for the trip is Thursday, May 25, 2017. The cost is amazing, only $18 and includes transportation, entrance to the Leanin’ Tree facilities as well as a stop at the Celestial Seasonings plant to see, smell, taste and view the making of their tea products. Lunch will be on our own at the classy Element Bistro.
We will leave the Senior Center at 8:30 AM and return around 4:30 PM. The number of participants will be limited to 12 persons all of whom must be Front Range Forum members. These trips tend to fill up very fast, so sign up quickly. Registration sign ups will begin at 7:00 AM on Friday, May 5 using registration number 205966-01 by calling the Senior Center front desk (at 221-6644) or stopping by the front desk.
Be on the lookout in mid July for the announcement of two additional FRF trips to highlight your summer adventures.
