Main Street Steamboat Award of Excellence

“Plein Main” by Sharon Rusch Shaver was chosen for the Award of Excellence by Main Street. We feel it depicts the Main Street mission which is to promote, preserve and enhance Downtown Main Street Steamboat Springs. It shows The Chief Theater, which has been preserved and is being used as a vital part of the arts and theater community. It also shows the new banners that have been added to enhance the branding of Downtown Main Street.
