Fires are once again raging and impacting our community, and our hearts and thoughts are with those being displaced by and fighting the fires.
The Fine Arts Center is currently open regular hours, Tuesday-Sunday, 10a-5p, and is offering the following to our community in response to the fires:
FREE GALLERY ADMISSION
The FAC is a great resource for staying indoors, avoiding the heat, and enjoying the beautiful art we have on view. We invite everyone who has been displaced by the fires to enjoy our art gallery offerings, free of charge.
Wednesday, June 19, 7:30p
Our FAC Theatre Company invites our community to enjoy the dress rehearsal of our upcoming production of Jacques Brel is Alive and Well and Living in Paris, a musical revue of the poignant, passionate, and profound songs of the Belgian songwriter. Seats are available on a first come first served basis. This production is appropriate for ages 13+.
FREE HEALING ART WORKSHOP
Saturday, June 22, 10a | Bemis School of Art
Our Bemis School of Art is hosting a free, two-hour art workshop for children ages 2-17 with the goal of providing a safe space to create, reflect, and share emotions created by the fires. This creative workshop will be led by Kim Nguyen from AspenPointe, who is generously donating her time. Parents, we encourage you to enjoy our art galleries while your child participates in the workshop.
DONATION DROP-OFF POINT FOR CARE AND SHARE
The FAC is accepting food donations on behalf of Care and Share Food Bank for Southern Colorado to aid in the fire response efforts. Donations of food are greatly appreciated and needed, especially high protein snacks, canned and boxed meals, soup, cereal, peanut butter, and oatmeal.
