Housed in an award winning art-deco facility, the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center has been the cultural center of the Pikes Peak region for nearly a century. With roots reaching back to the Broadmoor Art Academy, the Fine Arts Center has striven to promote the importance of fine art from its inception in 1936. The FAC's museum boasts a large permanent collection of regional, national, and international artists and hosts an array of traveling exhibitions. In addition to the museum, the Fine Arts Center also houses a Broadway-caliber theater with its own theater company as well as an established art school.

We paid $20 per person for entry. WAY too much for what was there. I love the impressionists and my boy friend loves western stuff. So there was a little for each of us. But not enough for either of us. I must have been spoiled by my trips to other galleries! Hit the Fine Arts in Richmond VA -... More

We revisited the FAC this week. We wanted to see Eloquent Objects, a show featuring the works of Georgia O'Keefe. Fortunately we arrived in time to join a tour. The exhibit was interesting, the tour guide knowledgable. Even though we visit several times a year, we still keep finding art in new places. The FAC is a terrific resource for... More

We went to see the Geoggia O'Keefe Exhibit, highly touted in adversisements. The cost was $15, not bad. There were 40 paintings in this special exhibit. It was advertised as being one of only four such showings of this exhibit in the entire United Stated United States. Furthermore, we were granted a tour narrated by a docent. We arrived there...

The Georgia O'Keeffe exhibit currently at the Fine Arts Center demonstrates my perspective - there are a limited number of her works present. The layout of the exhibit and the mounting of the paintings are done in the highest professional level, but the overall quality of the entire collection contains a lot of kitsch and maybe that is intentional. There... More

This is not a poor museum; but certainly a city with the resources of Colorado Springs could do better. The permanent collection is fairly narrow in dimension; I was there during the O'Keeffe exhibit. This is my third one and by far the least impressive.

When I visited the Fine Arts Center previously, I was there only for the art. This time, I was there only to see a theater performance. I saw "Guys & Dolls" on June 6th at the matinee. It was excellent! The inside of the auditorium is lovely (check out the light fixture in the middle of the ceiling), and the... More

We're so happy that you enjoyed your experience with "Guys & Dolls" and the FAC Theatre Company! Thanks, too, for the kudos on the SaGaJi Theatre and our Deco Lounge. Next season is going to be one blockbuster after another, including the Tony-winning "Peter and the Star Catcher," "White Christmas" and our 2014 hit, "Love, Loss & What I Wore."... More
