The Cultural Office of the Pikes Peak Region (COPPR) is the local arts agency for the City of Colorado Springs and the Pikes Peak region (El Paso and Teller Counties) in Colorado.  The Cultural Office works year-round, often behind the scenes, to achieve more than any one artist or cultural organization could do independently to ensure that the creative sector thrives and uplifts our entire region’s life and economy. As an independent nonprofit, we are efficient, strategic, and passionate about this work.

Beyond the Cultural Office's regional leadership & advocacy,
our programs are focused into 3 arenas of impact:

Our Mission

We champion our diverse creative community as a vital part of the region’s identity and economy through service, connection, and advocacy.

This is the 14th year of the exhibition and will be our 13th edition of the book.

Two Artist Receptions:

Parking Lot Party

Enjoy the beautiful artwork in the gallery, browse the artist booths and other vendors, dance with DJ and keyboardist Gabe From The Future, and indulge in some yummy BBQ from Taste Bud Rescue Food Truck.

Book Signing Reception

Come meet the artists and, just like a yearbook signing, sign the page with your art in everyone’s books! Each year, we photograph all the art that is included in the exhibit and create a book with the artists and images. The books will be available for sale during this event and hopefully a few weeks before!
