Lacey Connell as Dorothy was spot on. She kept it all together especially handling Toto. .... likewise Ferghus & Mary (Toto) brought a very special spirit to the play.

We went as a school field trip, but will definitely return with just the family. The kids had an art lesson first, which was awesome, they asked to sign up for more in the future. I didn't even know they gave classes there. Since it was a field trip our time was limited and we only saw one small portion... More

This newly expanded museum is brilliant and has several art exhibits a year, all very good, even top flight old and new artists. The SouthWestern Coilection here is unique. It is a cool place to be in June to October, when the heat is higher in this downtown location. The restaurant and bar are excellent.

The Colorado Springs Fine Art Center, the part where are is displayed has a clean, not sterile, interior and exterior structures and a fine permanent collection plus ample space for temporary exhibits. Currently showing Pamela Joseph's "Side show of the absurd," which is detailed and expansive and covers three rooms. There is a very nice cafe with beautiful views, excellent... More

Saw Paula Poundstone at the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center. What a lovely place it is! The theater is just the right size with very good acoustics. The seating is very comfortable with seats that are wider than usual and more leg room that is often found in a small theater.

Excellent art center in an outstanding John Gaw Meem building. Permanent and temporary exhibits are always interesting. Lunch is good, too. Also houses a performing arts program.

My husband and I have reciprocity for many museums offered by NARM. We delighted in the exhibits, new and special, that were on display.

Generally speaking, I find theCSFAC underwhelming and with a feeling of sterility and stiffness unlike major museums I have visited worldwide. However, the current show of the ABSURD by Pamela Joseph is exceptionally interesting. it is unique and involves many levels of artistic expertise including interaction with the viewer. It is definitely a show for adults. The interactive aspects really... More

Our friends took us to the Fine Arts Center for lunch . . the facility is lovely and we were seated outside on the terrace for lunch. So far, so good. The lunch offerings sounded delicious, but once delivered to our table, that's where it turned sour. My husband's soup, as he described it was, "dishwater with corn in it"... More
