members of the month

Meet our Oct/Nov members of the month: Julia and Drew Baxter

FAC members for 1 year

Why did you become a member of the Fine Arts Center?

Julia: I knew Drew would love going to all the exhibits and fun events, and I couldn’t pass up the 4th grade program. Drew: I love looking at art and creating art.

When did your interest in the arts begin?

Julia: I’ve always loved art. I used to participate in the summer arts programs here when I was a kid, and still love creating and enjoying the art that others create. Drew: I’ve always liked watching my mom paint and draw, and have been drawing since I was really little.

What has been one of your favorite plays, classes or exhibits at the Fine Arts Center and why?

Julia: The 4th grade program has been amazing so far! I’m loving bringing my son here and passing on my love of art to him. Drew: I really like the tactile exhibit! I think it’s neat that I get to touch all the art in that exhibit because normally in a museum, you can’t touch anything!

What is your favorite work of art at the FAC?

Julia: I’m a fan of the Chihuly room- I don’t know that I can narrow it down to just one. Drew: My favorite is The Orange Hornet chandelier by Chihuly. I even have a picture of it as the screensaver on my phone!

What else do you like to do for fun in Colorado Springs?

Julia: Hiking is big on the list. I also love checking out all the breweries around town. Drew: I like to go swimming, go to the parks, go hiking, and go out for ice cream!
