Creating Extraordinary Experiences

We believe the arts are a critical part of any community. Building upon our history as a cultural pillar, the Fine Arts Center strives to inspire community vitality through performing arts, visual arts and arts education.

A Rich Past. A Bright Future.

The Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center at Colorado College, built in 1936, grew out of and expanded on the mission of the esteemed Broadmoor Art Academy to become one of the only multi-discipline arts institutions in the nation.

Today we remain an amazing rarity — a museum, theatre and art school, essentially an entire arts district, under one roof. And we go well beyond what you’d consider the boundaries of those disciplines, offering special performances in our galleries, stand-up comedy and concerts in our theaters, epic parties in our Smith Family Gallery, and insider perks for our members that take them inside the process of creating the arts.
