It was disassembled, crated up, and sent halfway around the world to be rebuilt in Boulder as a symbol of friendship and cultural exploration.

The Leanin’ Tree Museum of Western Art in Boulder, exhibits the private art collection of Ed Trumble, Founder and Chairman of Leanin’ Tree, publisher of fine art greeting cards since 1949. His collection was born of a passion for American Western Art that has spanned seven decades. The scope and quality of this rare collection will surprise you.

We may be able to take a tour if we are lucky and see how the greeting cards are made. Watch as flat sheets of blank paper are transformed into beautiful, full-color cards. Follow the production process through precise cutting equipment, the rush of automated batching, and super-fast machines that fold 500,000 envelopes in one shift.

Please contact JoAnn Batey by Oct 29th if you plan on attending.

Maximum number of attendees is 20.
