I used to take 2-3 developmentally disabled young adults to see at least one of the exhibits several times a year because there used to be Free Admission the third Tuesday of every month. It was a wonderful experience and we discussed topics and materials chosen by artists, techniques, style, color, symbolism and our differing personal favorites. The last time... More

A little jewel of an art museum. Currently there is a wonderful exhibit of Chihuly called Chihuly Rediscovered. This dazzling exhibition builds on the state’s largest permanent collection of Chihuly artwork. The exhibition features more than 50 works of art, including Chandeliers, Macchia Forest, Baskets, Seaforms, Persians, Drawings and more. Included are works from their permanent collection as well as... More

I've lived in Colorado Springs since 1979 and have visited the FAC on many occasions. While the interior of the building has been modernized, I find there to be much less interesting art there than in the past. For example, I love Chihuly and have seen his previous exhibit at the FAC as well as one in Denver and Phoenix.... More

I was surprised by some of the negative reviews from others..but then I am a huge art fan and spend time really looking at all sorts of things. The regular museum entrance fee is $10 and the Chihuly glass exhibit is another $10. We had first thought of skipping it, but the ticket lady explained that we could use our... More

Use to live in the Northwest so was interested in seeing Chihuly exhibit. Exhibit was very small for price of $20 per person. Rest of museum wasn't too exciting. Took about 20 minutes to go through entire museum. Sad that there is no gift shop now. Asked about membership and upcoming exhibits. Decided to pass. Way too expensive for a... More

We found the price to be a bit steep for the size of the museum. When we went there was a Chihuly exhibit that was an extra fee. We're glad that we didn't pay for that! It was only one room, and you could see quite a bit of it from the doorway. If you want to see Chihuly I... More

Loved this place, especially when it's "hot" outside. You know, like over 80:). I heard they are doing some really cool stuff and adding an awesome exhibit next summer!

We only visited the art museum, but it was definitely not worth the price of admission nor the time we spent. Most of the art work was amateurish. The were a few pieces by well known artists, but not their best works. There was one Georgia O'Keefe that was worth seeing. They had a limited amount of Native American art... More

Ever since Scott RC Levy took over as artistic director for the theatre program, the Fine Arts Center has been extraordinary. I knew I would enjoy working here as an actor (and as a frequent theatre patron) when he chose "Assassins" by Stephen Sondheim as his first production. The scenery by Chris Sheley is astounding, the live music with music... More
