Wow, the new site looks just like the Onion. I wonder if you'll be as dedicated to truthful reporting as they are now that you've got this new fancy look.
Welcome to the Indy’s new site, which we’ve revamped in many ways to make as streamlined and user-friendly as possible. But during this transition, any comments that posted between Wednesday and Friday will not appear until Monday, as we move all the data.
All postings sent now will appear as usual, with the most recent comments on the home page.
You’ll also see constant changes and revisions on the home page each day, as we focus on events coming up that day and highlight different stories. You can check out full menus from the list of topics (News, Music, Film, Visual Arts, etc.) across the top. You can also see the electronic version of our latest issue by clicking on "Digital Issue."
We hope you enjoy the improvements, and we appreciate any feedback you might have. Thanks.

Great article! I have seen a few shows and it is totaly worth going! love the Simpich family
Very interesting its cool that we have something so unique to colorado springs.
I remember going to the Simpiches store when I was younger and was always fascinated by the wonderful craftsmanship. Its great to hear about the Simpiches again and I love that the Independent wrote an article about them so people can see how talented they are! A wonderfully written article!
I am shocked, an inspiring article on the continuation of a family held craft that has world-wide appeal right in Colorado Springs. Talk about edgy for the Indy, no skeleton or spray paint art expelled from the expatriated, upper class youth we find hawking their wares locally. It is refreshing to hear about a local artist with worldwide appeal whose notoriety is not gained from shock and awe but through skill.
Thanks for the article! I appreciate reading about local artists who have gained notoriety in an often forgotten art form.
hey im from oklahoma and i went to colorado springs for a vacation, i saw that wall its really impresive. is there any way you could get michael to contact me? my email is Pugz02_04@hotmail.com thanks
Well done fellas. Give us a ring. Martin.
I agree with wendeebyrd - this is an excellent article and it sped up my visit to the FAC Modern. I was delighted with all three installations, especially the two more subtle ones. I also feel very strongly, that since we are now entering a recession, museums, galleries and critics should be giving our local artists all the support they can muster.
I'm so glad that Frances' delicious choice of words has left me feeling like I've been to the exhibit and experienced it in all its beautiful extravagance. I can't wait to read more graciously written articles from this writer.
We can't wait to come to the new show. Once again we will enjoy this wonderful new facility, and you good people.
Thanks so much
While I was stationed at Ft.Carson 1991-2001, I met Lottie & Hedwig on 3-4 occasions thru a mutual friend. At one point,I even arrainged for my Army unit to help maintain the property on a saturday doing yardwork and routine property maintence. It is sad to see what has become of a shoe salesmans dream for his family and his artwork made of, in some cases, steel scrap and old truck brake drums. The assholes who complained, for the most part, knew what was in the neighborhood when they moved there. If people ownly knew.
I personally know Mr. Grubb and if you'd like to witness some of his art ask him to open up his jounal and read you an excerpt from his travels as a hobo. You'd be amused and content to know that, on the road, there are some very eccentric characters that make life quite interesting.
Congratulations on your successes now and to come Bobby!
woo hoo! rock on weusour! hope i get to see the gallery sometime! places like that aren't made for like LeSnob from LA anyways : )
I attended this same opening and it was a wonderful experience! Everyone was so friendly and accepting. The art work in this gallery is beautiful, thought provoking and inspiring! I encourage everyone to check it out!
