Not Sure Where To Begin? Our Highlights Page Can Help
Each year, the success of Arts Month depends on close collaboration with individual artists, arts organizations, and community partners from across our region.
The Cultural Office is grateful to all of our Highlights partners, and we thank them for creating the rich and diverse artistic programming that is collectively the centerpiece of Arts Month 2022.
Artist-of-the-Day Helps You Discover Local Artists
The Cultural Office is excited to once again feature a different local artist or creative on the ArtsOctober.com home page each day during the month of October. That’s 31 different profiles of painters, poets, chefs, singers, dancers, actors, and much more, who are each representative of the inspiring talent and diversity that defines the arts & cultural community here in Colorado Springs and across the Pikes Peak region!
