Wrap Art: Guatemalan Textiles from the Permanent Collection 

When: Jan. 19-May 5 2013

The Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center (30 W. Dale St., csfineartscenter.org) sees itself as a DJ with its "Raiding the Crates" series, in which it digs through its 20,000-piece collection for its artistic equivalent of "classic tunes" to display. Past "Crates" exhibitions included the preliminary sketches made for the FAC's 75th anniversary mural and works that responded to its James Turrell/Scott Johnson show. Now, the FAC is unveiling Wrap Art: Guatemalan Textiles from the Permanent Collection, on display today through May 26, overseen by guest curator Beth Olson. Vivid and merry, the textiles represent a tradition stretching back thousands of years. Now that's classic. Admission is free for members, and $8.50 to $10 for others. — Edie Adelstein
