Where We've Been, Where we're Going

A Look Back at 2019

The Glenwood Springs Arts Council has a rich tradition of arts education and celebration in the Glenwood Springs community since 1982. Over the years, the Council has touched many lives from youngsters creating art, music and dance, to those of all ages who have attended a concert, festival, art show or class.

As 2019 closed we proudly and fondly recalled the successes of the past year and the part many of you played in those events- International Jazz Day, A Woman’s Touch Art show and Culinary Arts Fest. It was a wonderful year that involved our community in celebrating the arts.

Now 2020 has brought so many unexpected changes for us all. And now that we can’t gather and see you in person we hold you and your families in our hearts and wish you all health and safety during this time. And for those of you who do need to be out in the workplace looking after our health, our safety, our food supply, we especially think of you and thank you.

We look forward to a time when we can be together again although we know that gatherings may first be limited to small groups. But meanwhile we have planned online events to keep artists and lovers of art stimulated and happy. Check out International Jazz Day and you’ll be delightfully surprised at what you’ll find there.

Our board is accountable and committed to its mission, with a vision for growing its programs each new year. Please join us in support of the arts in our community.
