You’ve seen those empty store fronts as you’ve wandered the streets of Old Town Fort Collins. They look like buildings that need some energy to make them happy again. That’s what Art Lab Fort Collins is all about. We’re temporarily filling those wonderful buildings with art, innovation, music, smiling faces until a new tenant comes along. When a new tenant decides to move in, we just move on to the next empty space.

Watch the empty store fronts for something new in Old Town.

We go through a wide variety of games, scenarios, and skits to build up our expertise in spontaneous, improvisational thinking, acting, singing, talking, speaking, falling, laughing, and juggling geese.

Stillness & Change by Charles Evan Brenton



Nature is the great source and the model architect in which I the draw the most inspiration from. With emphasis on letting the work evolve out of process, I discover crystalline structures, components of organisms, and eminent landscapes, as construction advances. Similar to the universal concepts of music, I aim to evoke an entire range of personal feelings and truths without directly telling a story. My passion for nature is the core driving force behind my forms, yet I realize I’m seduced by the benefits of technology at the same time and prefer to reflect this thought though contemporary color schemes. In an effort to obtain the ideal arrangement my sculptures end up balancing on the edge between change and stillness.
