We went to the holiday show here, a great craft offering for Christmas. We found lots of gifts for others and for ourselves. This is an old church that has been transformed and always has something of interest to see.

This art center is in a small former church, but sometimes, as for the textile exhibit, items are on display at the building next door. I always enjoy whatever they show and it is a must place for gift ideas before Christmas :-)

This was our second choice stop in Golden after the Coors Brewery tour but we skipped Adolph's creation because of the long waiting time (1.5 hours) and took in the Art Center instead. No regrets about that decision. For the $3 price of our seniors' admission, we saw a remarkably diverse exhibition of textiles worked into many different forms and... More

Easy to find, reasonable and free parking and excellent content. I am not an "art person" as such but went in with some friends who are - so visited essentially for social reasons. I was pleasantly surprised to find the display areas were well lit, the place was quiet and invited a meditative contemplation. Later I found out that it... More

My friend and I happened upon the FAC while spending a couple of days in Golden. The Colorado Watercolor Society exhibit was going on, and it was fabulous. The Center was also advertising for an upcoming Degas exhibit.

I went to the Foothills Art Center to see the Chihuly exhibit. It is a tiny place with a limited parking capacity. The staff was not very friendly.

I highly recommend the Chihuly temporary exhibit! While small, the objects are stunningly beautiful, as one would expect from Dale Chihuly. All of the objects belong to one man, George R. Stroemple. The venue was once a Neo-Gothic style church and is interesting in its own right. Check out their website http://www.foothillsartcenter.org

Always something new at the foothills art center. You are greeted as though your visit is the most important of the day. What a true source of pride for the small city of Golden. Art works, ranging from glass to clay to forums that you can only imagine. What a lovely place to visit. It is small but demonstrates so... More

We were in Colorado visiting our daughter in Evergreen which is not far from Golden. I knew there was a private Chihuly exhibit at the Foothills Art Center. Put it on my 'to do list' and was not disappointed. I had never seen an exhibit of Chihuly's work before although I had seen his work at the Bellagio in Las... More
