Join us as we celebrate the Fine Arts Center’s permanent collection
Tuesday, April 14,
Cash bar, light refreshments and
gallery talk at 6p
What’s old is new again at the FAC! Over the past few months we have completely refreshed all of the first floor galleries with new exhibitions made up of old favorites, new acquisitions and many pieces that you may have never experienced before.
All members of the Fine Arts Center are welcome to join us for our Monthly Members Tour, held on the 1st Saturday of each month at 12 noon. Each tour (lasting approximately 1 hour) will feature a different topic, so feel free to come to multiple tours and continue learning about the FAC. No RSVP needed, just show your membership card at the front desk.
Our next Monthly Members Tour will be held on Saturday, April 4 at 12 noon. John James Audubon’s strength and endurance helped him overcome adversity to become an important influence on ornithology and natural history. Learn about the artist’s fascinating life and art by touring the exhibition A Naturalist & an Artist: John James Audubon & Kevin Sloan. A team of guides will teach about Audubon’s feathered subject matter, the era he worked in, his methods and more.

Fine Arts Center memberships make great gifts for friends and family. 2015 brings the Year of Georgia O’Keeffe to the FAC, with many exciting member events and happenings throughout the year. In addition, your gift membership helps support the FAC so that we can bring you year round programming in the theater, art school and museum. We can mail the gift directly to the recipient, or to the purchaser. You can even fill out a personalized greeting.

Become a member of the Fine Arts Center!
FREE admission to permanent collection
|Invitations to Members Only previews & events||Early registration & discounted art classes||Discounts on theatre tickets & more!|
As a member of the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center, you are a valued and essential part of an organization at the center of the regional arts scene. You’ll enjoy tremendous discounts, freebees, special invites and the knowledge that you’re making a difference with so many life-enriching programs.
In fact, if you’re a member and participate in the arts, you’ll easily find your membership paying for itself in no time. Just a few museum visits throughout the year or specially-ticketed exhibits will alone pay for membership, not to mention Bemis School of Art class discounts, and at the Contributing level and above, Denver Art Museum membership at a value of $150 is included. At the Contributing level, that literally doubles the value of membership! And there are even more benefits that increase the value exponentially.
Because we receive little to no public funding, and programming revenue covers only a fraction of the costs, support from loyal patrons through membership is essential to ensuring that we can continue to provide important programs like the school group tours, youth summer theater programs, and art classes for at-risk youth and returning service men and women.
While your membership has direct value for you, it's truly invaluable to us, and priceless for the cultural vitality of our community. We look forward to having you join us!
There are Basic Levels and Donor Circle Levels so you can choose the very best fit for you!

The Museum Society is designed for our most impassioned and discerning members who appreciate an exclusive opportunity to deepen their involvement and understanding of the visual arts on levels otherwise difficult to obtain.
The Museum Society is driven by your interests, your passion. Your ideas and input will help shape this program as it continuously evolves.
We anticipate a minimum of five exclusive events for Museum Society members each year. Just a few of these events will include curator-led tours of private art collections; intimate behind-the-scenes looks at relevant artists’ studios; and day-trips to regional museums and galleries.
As a member, you’ll also have the opportunity to travel across the country on a major three- to four-day trip to enjoy other museums, private collection tours, and fine dining. We have the connections to set up an itinerary you’d be hard-pressed to find through any travel agency!
The Museum Society is an excellent opportunity to share your passion in visual arts with other fine art enthusiasts.
