The Fine Arts Center will unveil an Eric Bransby mural commissioned to commemorate the FAC’s 75th Anniversary with a special Members Preview on April 20. Bransby, who is 94-years-old, studied under several of the most influential art teachers in 20th Century America, including Thomas Hart Benton, Boardman Robinson (as a student at the FAC School), and Josef Albers. Another master and FAC School Director Jean Charlot helped Bransby finish his college thesis: painting the domed ceiling of Colorado College's Cossitt Hall in 1947. Read more.

Madam and Evening: A Living Dream Installation
March 24- April 15, 2012 | Hybl Screening Room | Live performances Tuesday, Thursdays, Saturdays, Sundays, 1-5p
Created in collaboration with the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center and Colorado College drama and dance department, this student performance includes elements of dance, theater, film, and other interdisciplinary media. Thematically, the project is an exploration of the profundity and absurdity of dreams, and an examination of their role within the human experience. Dreams exist as personal experiences that create an imagined reality of unique aesthetic possibilities outside of the tangible world. In this performance-based installation, Madam and Evening escape into the unconscious, simultaneously experiencing the same dream. While individual agency and influence remain intact, reality and expectations do not. There is a multimedia installation available for view every day when the FAC is open (Tuesday-Sunday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.) Live performances featuring dancers Arob Dickerson and Dolo McComb as Madam and Evening will take place every Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday, from 1p to 5p.
