About Us

MISSION

Founded on the premise that participation in the arts engenders creative thinking in all endeavors, I.D.E.A at Colorado College seeks to integrate the visual arts into campus and community life. Through innovative collaborations, visual art exhibitions, performances, speakers, and events, I.D.E.A. programs encourage impassioned dialogues and interdisciplinary investigations that extend far beyond gallery walls.

A natural outgrowth of Colorado College’s liberal arts philosophy, I.D.E.A. supports Colorado College’s mission to “provide a variety of stimulating environments for intellectual development, creative expression, and personal growth” for students, and extends that mission to encompass the larger community. I.D.E.A. is committed to supporting a culture of learning and exploration within Colorado Springs and the Rocky Mountain region.

ABOUT I.D.E.A.

The I.D.E.A. program is committed to supporting a culture of learning and exploration both at Colorado College and within Colorado Springs and the Rocky Mountain region by bringing innovative arts exhibitions and experiences to southern Colorado. All exhibitions and associated educational programming are open to the general public.

Located in the Edith Kinney Gaylord Cornerstone Arts Center, the I.D.E.A. Space is the home base for Colorado College’s InterDisciplinary Experimental Arts program. A natural outgrowth of Colorado College’s liberal arts philosophy, I.D.E.A. supports Colorado College’s mission to “provide a variety of stimulating environments for intellectual development, creative expression, and personal growth” and extends that mission to encompass the larger community. Through a lively series of exhibitions, speakers, films, workshops, and performances, I.D.E.A. programs seek to integrate the visual and performing arts into the academic and social fabric of Colorado College and the broader community.

Special thanks to I.D.E.A. Space naming donors Susan Hoke Smith (1977) and William S. Smith (1974).
