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.

I went with a group of ladies and a docent to the Fine Arts Center. It was so much fun! The docent, Ruth Lynne, was very knowledgeable and helped us to understand some of the art and artists. We saw the current special display on Women and even some Chagall paintings. I loved the Chihully glass and chandeliers. It is... More

Easy to access and to park, the Colorado Springs Arts Center is a great place to spend a relaxing time. We spent an afternoon roaming through the art gallery, dining at the on site restaurant,Taste, and seeing an amazing Broadway style musical, "Nine to Five". Well worth the trip.

This very accessible museum has an eclectic mix of various types of art from Kachina dolls to Chihuly glass. It is a Blue Star Museum and so free to Armed Service families.

Not sure which Fridays are free, but the time we went it was! Several rooms upstairs are not open, since they are preparing for new exhibits this summer. Allow about two hours for your visit. Easy to find, right behind the Money Museum, and free parking in the lot at the museum.

The exhibits change from time to time, but it is always a fun place to visit. Their theatre is also quite good, so if you have time try to take in a show.

We had an excellent night at the theater watching Peter and the Starcatcher. A brilliant show from stage to lighting to props to cast. All of it! We also stayed for the unique and informational backstage tour. What an awesome experience!

This show was a blast! Amazing actors, outstanding set, impressive staging, and tons of quick, on-target one-liners with the perfect touch of whimsy and spot-on timing. Especially enjoyed The Boy and his delightful sense of wonder. It's easy to see why the play won several Tony awards, and the FAC did a bang-up job producing it My only regret was... More

The CSFAC not only offers a great selection of art, especially Southwestern, but also an excellent theatre and art school (for all ages). The cafe and bar are bonuses! We have been members since the mid-1990's and also season ticket-holders to the theatrical productions.
