OtherArea: Colorado Springs
Runs through the end of January 2010.
Funny, how all mention of the DADA project, where the entire group of artists in the area were on board to try and make the Gas Utilities building and surrounding park area a big, wonderful, walking district for the arts, is not mentioned. People like Elaine Bean, et al, devoted hours and hours and monies to design a project that would have been super as affordable space for artists and also bring an element of grace to a long-time historic district for the arts. Silly us. USOC got the building and Cottonwood School was forced to vacate their space. Way to go City and Urban Renewal. You got what you wanted. Instead of a viable art and shopping area for tourists and locals to enjoy that would help to draw people to the downtown core area, you got more blight.

As the owner of Rainy Days Silkscreen Studio I must say how honored I was to be a part of this project. Just a note of clarification....I am located in the Depot Arts District, under the Colorado Bridge in the same building as the Smokebrush Gallery....not in Manitou as the article states. Peace!
