A proper farewell for Filthy Wilma's

Filthy Wilma’s will be officially laid to rest with a funeral procession June 2. The distinctively named art gallery at 10 Ruxton Ave. in Manitou Springs recently closed, reopening at a new location, 729 Manitou Ave., and with a new name, the Green Horse Gallery.

The gallery was forced to change its name because of its new landlord’s opposition to the name Filthy Wilma’s. In memory of Wilma, local artists and musicians will lead a sidewalk parade from the old location to the new, starting at 2:30 p.m. A grand reopening party will follow from 3 to 7 p.m.
