The Art of Firefighting

You are an artist and you want, no – you need better exposure for your work.  You blow the doors off photographs, or you make jewelry for women that gives them celebrity status just by wearing it, or you have a way with wood that turns a tree branch into an exquisite box meant to hold gold coins and cut emeralds.  The Big Chili Cook-off Music and Arts Festival coming Sunday, September 11th in Evergreen, Colorado will give you over five thousand new fans, all in one day, and your small entry fee will go directly to supporting our mountain area Volunteer Firefighters who are working themselves to exhaustion trying to protect the majesty of these mountains in a season when the lack of precipitation has made our area ripe for wild fire.  You sell your art, and gain a following of loyal fans and tell our firefighters that what they do matters, all at the same time.  One day – one really big payoff.
