Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center
The Fine Arts Center's museum, founded in 1936 by the visionary Alice Bemis Taylor, is home to the FAC Permanent Collection – over 23,000 works – as well as special exhibition galleries. It features masterworks by such American artists as Richard Diebenkorn, Georgia O'Keefe, Walt Kuhn, John Singer Sargent, Dale Chihuly, and artists connected to the Broadmoor Art Academy, as well as one of the strongest collections of Hispanic, Latin American and American Indian art in the nation. "No comprehensive story of Colorado art can be told without including selections from the arts center's extensive collection," writes the Denver Post. Major traveling exhibitions, including an exhibition of O'Keeffe and her contemporaries (June 27–Sept. 13, 2015), have also featured Andy Warhol, Fernando Botero, Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, Jackson Pollock, Joan Miró, Pierre Auguste Renoir and Edgar Degas.
