Ten years ago, The Wright set out to celebrate outdoor-inspired, independent-minded entrepreneurs of the Mountain West. Over the years, we’ve witnessed a refreshing portrait emerge. Not so much an assemblage of innovative gear, but rather a collective story of outdoor stewardship, collaborative spirit, and resilient communities.

We invite you to visit The Wright Retrospective for an up-close look at this unique display of innovative products, sketch-ups and back of the napkin doodles from those entrepreneurial-minded doers and creators, making the things invite us into and move us through the outdoors. 

This free and open to the public exhibition is hosted in collaboration with the Colorado Outdoor Recreation Industry Office and Dairy Block. The opportunity to present The Wright Retrospective is possible only through their partnership and support.
