Guest Book

One of my favorite memories of my Frontier Fellowship residency in Green River was [the late] Richard Seeley taking me to identify uranium.

Kirsten Southwell
Frontier Fellow (2016)

As a teacher at Green River High, having the interaction with the Frontier Fellows in my classroom has proven invaluable. Epicenter has provided my students with unique educational experiences with poets, playwrights, singers, songwriters, and folklorists.

Ren Hatt
Epicenter Board Member

I'll never forget applying 23-carat ducate gold leaf to "Elements" with Dan Harrison's son, Bo, on Monument Hill.

Charlotte XC Sullivan
The First Frontier Fellow (2011)

Talking to Nancy Dunham about documenting life in Green River, mostly when she said, "There's just a lot of mysteries out there."

Charlie Macquarie
Frontier Fellow (2017)

Everytime we celebrate a success is my favorite: the grand opening of our building, the printing of The Green River Newspaper, opening of This Is Green River exhibit and screening the film. Such warm memories!

Maria Sykes
Co-Founder & Executive Director

Being a part of the build team for the Epicenter building, and seeing it transform, even if Wes knocked the parapet off the roof.

Aimée O'Carroll
Visiting Architect (2009)

Every day of renovating the "Baxter Building" into Epicenter HQ.

Wes Funes
Intern (2010)

The day before I left, I picked blooming desert flowers with [local artist and fellow Emerging Frontier Fellow] Sarah Burnett. The flowers had not been there when I arrived a month earlier. As we drove out to the Crystal Geyser I couldn't believe how many clusters of flowers dotted the umber hills. Green River is truly a magical place.

Emerging Frontier Fellow (2019)

The City of Green River, Utah, has a 3.2-acre plot of land located one block south of Main and east of Broadway which they would like to see developed into entry-level housing options. Last month, the City released a Request for Proposals for affordable housing on this property, and Epicenter enthusiastically responded!
