Five Points Plus: Neighborhood Memory Project
Five Points Plus highlights the history, culture, and community of Denver's historic Five Points neighborhood, as collected with and by community members through the ongoing Museum of Memory project with the same name.
This project was developed in partnership with the Black American West Museum and Heritage Center along with Five Points community members and supported by the Blair-Caldwell African American Research Library (Denver Public Library) and Manual Highschool. It showcases the human stories and collective memory of this important and diverse neighborhood, and is built on narratives about living, working, and growing up in Five Points.
The Five Points Plus exhibit features a mural created by artist Adri Norris in partnership with residents, artifacts from a variety of different Five Points eras, a sound installation featuring the voices of the community storytellers, photos from the community, and a soundtrack provided by KUVO radio. Five Points Plus also complements Where Corners Meet, the imaginative artistic installation by partners from the University of Colorado Denver that is currently on view at in the main lobby of the History Colorado Center.
