Second Sundays are Now Free Days at the Arts Center
Businesses and Individuals Support the Arts Through Partnership in 2016

The Sangre de Cristo Arts Center and Buell Children’s Museum offer an unforgettable experience for those who visit, and now every second Sunday of the month during 2016 is free. “Community access is a priority for the Arts Center, and we try very hard to be inclusive,” says Executive Director Jim Richerson. “These opportunities would not be possible without leaders in the community like Carolyn Jackson, daughter of Bob Jackson, who has sponsored Sunday, January 10, 2016 and Parkview Medical Center who has sponsored Sunday, June 12, 2016. Together, we are strengthening and elevating our community. The Arts Center is grateful for all the donors, members, and supporters who make the sharing of our permanent collections, exhibitions, and programs available to visitors from around the world.”

Free days during 2016 are January 10, February 14, March 13, April 10, May 8, June 12, July 10, August 14, September 11, October 9, November 13, and December 11. Sunday hours of operation for the Buell Children’s Museum and Helen T. White Galleries are from 11 am - 5 pm. Sponsorship opportunities for these special days are still available. If an individual or business is interested in providing community access to the Arts Center through sponsorship of a day, please call (719) 295-7200 ext. 7235.
