The Community Creative Center is open at the Historic Carnegie Building! Beet Street moved into the 3rd floor offices last March and has been working with the city and the Lincoln Center to plan, program and prepare the building for the public.
The Lincoln Center is managing the 2nd floor Gallery and opened with a bang last Friday! Over 50 artists were in line when the doors opened for an Open Hang – a first-come, first-served, fill-the-walls from floor-to-ceiling exhibition.
By 4pm, all 160 artists that came found wall space….
and a beautiful exhibition was formed:
The Open Hang Exhibition is on view until August 24th, Saturdays from noon-4pm and during a First Friday Gallery Walk opening hosted by Beet Street, August 2nd, 6-9pm.
Come see us!
Located at 200 Mathews Street, the Community Creative Center’s main gallery space is managed by the Lincoln Center. Details on how YOU can rent the space can be found here beginning August 12.
There are so many opportunities coming up to share your art in Fort Collins, that we decided to list all the calls for entry, open auditions, contests and classes that we could find. Please let us know if there is anything else you know of that should be on this list! You can post opportunities for yourself at the AIR Opportunity Center if you are a free or paid member, and you can always get in touch with us through the Beet Street Facebook page!
