Manitou Springs is a great place for artwork. In addition to its eclectic galleries (now operating on a First Friday schedule, in case you want to take the shuttle to Manitou on the 6th), artistic events abound in this adorable mountain town. One annual event, Garden of the Arts, offers 100 juried fine artists exhibiting in Manitou’s Memorial Park. Whether you’re into sculpture, painting, photography, woodwork or whatever else, you’ll find something to enjoy — and probably to take home. And these artists aren’t all the usual suspects. You’ll of course find plenty of exciting art by artists from Colorado Springs and Manitou Springs, but enjoy regional and national artists as well, whose work may be less familiar. On the 7th, Denver singer-songwriter Kenny Lee Young will be performing a live set, with harmonicist and guitarist AJ Silverberg (also from Denver) performing on the 8th. Both days will include family activities to keep the kids entertained while you stock up on art.
