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.Continue reading

The Fort Collins Improv group is for people who are interested in learning more about Improv – come join us! We get together to be spontaneous! Every level is welcome; we love to have fun and to laugh together. Everybody participates and everybody has fun – no one feels left out or embarrassed!
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.

A capstone exhibition for BFA students Krystin Gutierrez and Miranda Molinar, this show features drawings created during their time at Colorado State University. Not your traditional drawings, both artists embrace a more explorative approach and create an intricate world of textures, tattoos, collage, found objects, line, and ornamental mark making. Krystin Gutierrez thematically focuses on space, time, place, and the continuums in between them. Tactile, collaged, and incorporating multiple mediums and found objects, these works reflect her desire to preserve a specific moment in time. Miranda Molinar on the other hand focuses on tattoo art and explores working with various materials to elevate tattoos to the fine art level. Through this she investigates the cultural and ornamental significance they have to her. Although visually unlike one another, the artists in this exhibition create a true continuum, “a continuous sequence in which adjacent elements are not perceptibly different from each other, but the extremes are quite distinct”.
