UPDATE: Venue 515 officially re-opens Friday

Posted By on Mon, Nov 5, 2012 at 9:43 AM

We received a call from the Manitou Springs Police Department saying that they do have leads, and evidence is being analyzed. But they wouldn't give details.


After cleanup of about $100,000 worth of damage, the Business of Arts Center's Venue 515 will officially re-open tomorrow. Back in August, a group or an individual vandalized the place by stopping up all the sinks and letting the water run. Many of the offices in the building were damaged, as well as numerous works of art.


According to the BAC, the Manitou Springs Police Department has a list of possible suspects, but isn't naming any. The Indy has put in a call to the MSPD for more information; we'll update this post if we hear back.

But with the help of insurance, and community donations, the BAC was able to move on, and celebrate 515's re-opening tomorrow starting at 6 p.m. with food, drink, live music, artwork. A production of Springs Acting Studio's The Shape of Things will happen at 7:30.

The BAC will also officially unveil its new Gift Gallery and Mabel's Cafe, which will serve soup, bread and beverages.
