Pueblo D-60 unveils painting depicting the city at Minnequa Elementary
PUEBLO, Colorado – Minnequa Elementary School is now home to a large-format 4×8 gate to the southwest mural created by professional artist Joe Cawfield with input from Minnequa students.
The origins of this panoramic painting lie in school-based workshops where the children were asked to describe what pueblo means to them. These written and sketched ideas, which included friends, trees, grass, water, and distinctive buildings, were incorporated into the stunning work of art.

In addition, the students recorded a jingle written by Mr. Ballantyne, “Gateway to the Southwest”, which was accompanied by professional Pueblo musicians.
