PUEBLO –Internationally acclaimed artist and writer David Robbins will deliver a lecture and lead a video making workshop this weekend, February 18-20, at Colorado State University-Pueblo.

His books include The Velvet Grind: Essays, Interviews, Satires 1983-2005, and The Camera Believes Everything.
