FAC's Arthur Dove is a USPS 2013 forever stamp

Thanks to a late-afternoon tweet from the Broadmoor, I found out that the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center now has another claim to fame: one of its pieces is part of the United States Postal Service's Modern Art in America 1913-1931 2013 forever stamp collection.

The work is Arthur Dove's 1929 painting "Fog Horns," which belongs to the FAC's permanent collection. Unveiled in late 2012, Dove's work is part of a 12-stamp series that includes pieces by Georgia O'Keeffe, Man Ray and Marsden Hartley.

You can buy the stamp series here, and a framed print of the stamp here.
