International Archaeology Day Virtual Talk with Zebulon Miracle

October 17 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

A Historiography of Rock Art

One of the most common questions when viewing rock art is, “What does it mean?”  Rock art can serve a number of functions from calendars, ceremony, storytelling, and expression.  This talk will not attempt to explain the meaning of images.  Rather, we will look at interpretation efforts over the centuries and examine how researchers have approached studying rock art over time.

Zebulon Miracle is the executive director of United Way of Mesa County.  A western Colorado native, Zeb spent a dozen years at the Museums of Western Colorado in various curatorial positions and five years at Gateway Canyons overseeing educational programming and the Gateway Auto Museum.  He has volunteered on a number of boards including the City of Grand Junction Historic Preservation Board, the Community Food Bank of Grand Junction, Colorado Canyons Association, and the American Association of State and Local History Award of Merit committee.  Currently he is on the Board of Directors for MusicSpark and Visit Grand Junction.  Zebulon’s passion is connecting people to the places and stories that surround them and has led trips and tours all over the American Southwest, Mexico, and France.  When not in the office, Zeb can usually be found hiking with trusty golden retriever, Mozart, and four-year old son, Xanthus.
