AllenTrue was a native of Colorado, born in Colorado Springs in 1881, who chose to create lasting murals and other works of art found in many historic
Colorado
structures.  He produced the Indian Memories series for the former Colorado National Bank.  Though faded from the sunlight which has streamed into the bank's lobby for more than a hundred years, the murals are still beautiful.  True’s murals decorated the Mountain States Telephone and

The Allen True's West exhibition will run through March 29, 2010, at which time the museum will close to the public in preparation for the move to the new History Colorado Center, one block south of the current museum location. Admission to the exhibition is free.
