At the Colorado Creative Industries summit in Salida last week, Amy Kimberly of Carbondale Arts and the Carbondale Creative District was honored with the Governor's Creative Leadership Award. After an extended ovation, she called Carbondale her muse and humbly shared the spotlight with staff members Laura Stover, Brian Colley, Staci Dickerson, Kat Rich, and Rachael Manning. She ended the speech by raising her fist and declaring, "Together, we are a force!"
