Exciting changes are coming to arts programming as the alliance between the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center and Colorado College moves forward.

For the past nine years, the IDEA Space has hosted innovative collaborations, visual art exhibitions, performances, speakers, and events, to encourage impassioned dialogues and interdisciplinary investigations that extend far beyond gallery walls.

The Beyond Mammy, Jezebel, and Sapphire: Reclaiming Images of Black Women exhibition runs until Tuesday, May 16, Monday-Friday 1-6 p.m. and Saturday 1-5 p.m. It will be the final exhibit in the IDEA Space at Cornerstone Arts Center.

But don’t fret. As part of the CC-FAC integration, you’ll soon find the programming you’ve grown to love from the IDEA Space at the Fine Arts Center museum. Through dynamic exhibitions paired with innovative learning opportunities, the museum will celebrate excellence in the visual arts while exploring, challenging, and transcending traditional definitions of what a museum can be.

The curatorial team from the IDEA Space is joining the Fine Arts Center to harness the power of bringing people together, to be a center not only for teaching and learning, but also a place of inclusion, exchange, collaboration, and inspiration!

This is an exciting time. We thank you for your continued support of the arts and look forward to seeing you across the street at the Fine Arts Center! Watch your inbox for emails from the FAC to stay udpated on upcoming events, exhibitions and other arts programming and follow us on Facebook.
