As we get ready to celebrate our City’s 150th anniversary, it’s exciting to reflect on the wonderful gifts that our City’s founder, General William Jackson Palmer, bestowed on us. This includes more than 2,000 acres of incredible parkland – which, 148 years later, still includes some of the most sweeping, majestic views in the world.  Examples of parkland gifts from Palmer include: Alamo, Acacia, Antlers, Monument Valley and Palmer Park.

Another of Palmer's amazing legacies to our community is our tree-lined city.  When he founded our city in 1871, it was a nearly treeless, arid plain. Palmer changed that by planting thousands of trees in our city. To celebrate our 150th anniversary in 2021 and carry on Palmer’s vision of a tree-lined city, we are challenging the community to help plant 18,071 new trees over the next two years.

[more+]

In celebration of Arts Month 2021, the Pikes Peak Outdoor Recreation Alliance, Fountain Creek Watershed Flood Control & Greenway District, Creek Week, and the Cultural Office of the Pikes Peak Region have joined forces once again to orchestrate the 4th annual Pikes Peak Litter Letter Project. Each year, our local Litter Letter Project produces a unique piece of sculptural art that is constructed with trash collected from public lands and waterways during Creek Week. Modeled after the national Litter Letter Project, and with permission to use their logo and concept, our local Litter Letter Project is a fun and inspiring annual event that signals the official start of Arts Month. It’s also a wonderful cross-sector collaboration between the Arts, Outdoor Recreation, and Environmental sectors that benefits the entire region!

The community is invited to participate in several clean-up sessions throughout our local trails and lands during National Public Lands Day (Sept. 25) and in coordination with our local Creek Week cleanups (Sept. 25 – Oct. 3). Participants will gather litter at several designated sites and then fill giant letters made from recycled metal that spell a different word each year. Our past words have been INSPIRE (2018), PRISTINE (2019), and RESILIENT (2020). This year’s word is: RESPECT.

Interested in “adopting” a letter to fill with your Creek Week Cleanup Crew? Email creekweeksoco@gmail.com for more information.

The litter letters, constructed by local nonprofit Concrete Couch, will be on display throughout the month of October in celebration of Arts Month. Well-sited on a berm, just off Cimarron Street, east of I-25 and south of America the Beautiful Park, the art piece is also visible from the adjacent trail.

On Friday, October 1st at 4:00PM, just before the start of First Friday, there will be a dedication ceremony for the 2021 Litter Letter art piece. The dedication event is free and open to the public, and will feature brief remarks by project partners and community leaders. Light snacks and refreshments will be provided, as well as live musical entertainment courtesy of the Curbside Culture program.

Following the dedication event, everyone is invited to celebrate the start of Arts Month 2021 by participating in the October First Friday Art Walks from 5-8PM along the Avenue Creative Circuit in Downtown Colorado Springs, Old Colorado City, and Manitou Springs. Throughout the month of October, the local community is also invited to support our Litter Letter Project though a special social media campaign on Instagram, by using the hashtag #PikesPeakLitterLetters to show us how you recreate responsibly, and RESPECT the outdoors.

Media inquiries and questions about the project should be directed to Andy Vick at andy@CulturalOffice.org.

Dragon Theatre Productions is a community-inclusive theatre program of Imagination Celebration that welcomes anyone who can make the performance commitment.

Dragon Theatre has first and foremost been about creating community – making a space for people to feel welcome, supported, from all walks of life, to create nonjudgmental art together. We worked hard to find ways that we can safely come together again in a way that makes sense across our very diverse team. Last year, we did this through a zoom performance, and this year with small original scenes custom tailored for each actor's needs and give some more in person options this year, in ways that are safe and make sense for that team.

All of our short films had the theme of Outer Space through a very special collaboration with The Space Foundation, and we are excited to share with you our performances!

We will do a live screening on October 9 at 3 p.m. at the East Library Community Room. Please note that masks will be required to attend the event. Space Costumes are welcome!

We will also host a virtual screening on Youtube here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2PX-D6Y9LUw 

The films will also be available afterward on our Vimeo channel: https://vimeo.com/channels/dragontheatreproductions

Our shows this year are:

'Anderous Cluster' by Phillip Kirks
'First Contact' by RP Bowman
'Why Today' by Weston Krueger
'Space Mission: Recover the Cosmo Crystal' by Angie Gerholdt

Chromesthesia is a form of synesthesia where sound causes a person to experience color, shape, and movement, in addition to the emotional reactions we have to music.

Cottonwood Center for the Arts has invited artists to create and share their own interpretation of Chromesthesia, based around these musical works: Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2 by Franz Liszt OR Scheherazade, Op. 35: I. The Sea and Sinbad’s Ship by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov. The two composers were known to disagree about which colors matched musical keys.

We invite you to come experience these musical pieces through the lens of the visual artist this coming First Friday from 5-8 p.m., and through the end of October during normal business hours.

Less than two weeks after the September 11th attacks, New Yorkers are still in shock. One of them, an editor named Joan, receives an unexpected phone call on behalf of Nick, a fire captain who has lost most of his men in the attack. He’s looking for a writer to help him with the eulogies he must present at their memorial services.

Nick and Joan spend a long afternoon together, recalling the fallen men through recounting their virtues and their foibles, and fashioning the stories into memorials of words. In the process, Nick and Joan discover the possibilities of friendship in each other and their shared love for the unconquerable spirit of the city. As they make their way through the emotional landscape of grief, they draw on humor, tango, the appreciation of craft in all its forms—and the enduring bonds of common humanity.

'The Guys' is based on a true story.

INDOOR SEATING POLICY: Please note that due to the ongoing COVID pandemic, and because of the intimate size of our theatre, only a limited number of tickets will be sold. Proof of vaccination or a recent (within three days) Coronavirus negative test is required for entry. Masks will be required indoors.

Theresa will share personal stories about her life and explain how her gift works. She will deliver healing messages to audience members and give people comfort knowing that their loved ones who passed are still with them, just in a different way. Purchasing a ticket does not guarantee a reading.

“The Experience” brings Theresa face-to-face with her fans, as she lets spirit guide her through the audience. A video display ensures everyone in the venue has an up-close-hands-on experience regardless of seat location. “The experience isn’t about believing in mediums. It’s about witnessing something life-changing,” says Theresa Caputo. “It’s like Long Island Medium live, witnessing first-hand spirit communication.”

The highly-rated show Long Island Medium follows Theresa’s life as a typical Long Island mom with one very big difference…she can communicate with the dead. Since she cannot “turn off” this gift, messages from departed loved ones can come through at any time, which lead to spontaneous readings with those she encounters. In addition to her television show, Theresa has appeared on such programs as “Jay Leno,” “Jimmy Fallon,” “Steve Harvey,” “Live with Kelly and Michael,” “Dr. Oz,” & “The Today Show.”

With his critically acclaimed fourth studio record, country superstar Brett Eldredge takes fans on an unforgettable outing with his new album Sunday Drive. Joined by GRAMMY-winning producers Daniel Tashian and Ian Fitchuk, he journeyed to Chicago’s intimate Shirk Studios, where the album came to life.

As a mental health advocate, Eldredge pulls from a personal place with the single “Good Day,” which brings the message of keeping a healthy mindset. “Good Day” follows the wistful, piano-driven lead single “Gabrielle,” which made its TV debut on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and has been called “a breath of fresh air” by Rolling Stone. Having added a seventh country radio No. 1 to his name with “Love Someone,” the critically acclaimed entertainer filled arenas on his first ever sold-out headlining The Long Way tour, which included performances of his Gold and Platinum-certified singles spanning four albums.

The tour will also include special opening act Morgan Evans who hit the top of the U.S. Charts with “Kiss Somebody.” The Australian born singer-songwriter is known for other hits including “Diamonds” and fan favorite “Day Drunk.”

“I’m bringing Morgan Evans on tour and I’ve been a big fan of his for a long time and he’s a crazy good talent and amazing guy. I just think he brings that mentality that I love, that positive energy and good heart and this tour is going to have a lot of heart,” said Eldredge.

As we get ready to celebrate our City’s 150th anniversary, it’s exciting to reflect on the wonderful gifts that our City’s founder, General William Jackson Palmer, bestowed on us. This includes more than 2,000 acres of incredible parkland – which, 148 years later, still includes some of the most sweeping, majestic views in the world.  Examples of parkland gifts from Palmer include: Alamo, Acacia, Antlers, Monument Valley and Palmer Park.

Another of Palmer's amazing legacies to our community is our tree-lined city.  When he founded our city in 1871, it was a nearly treeless, arid plain. Palmer changed that by planting thousands of trees in our city. To celebrate our 150th anniversary in 2021 and carry on Palmer’s vision of a tree-lined city, we are challenging the community to help plant 18,071 new trees over the next two years.

[more+]

In celebration of Arts Month 2021, the Pikes Peak Outdoor Recreation Alliance, Fountain Creek Watershed Flood Control & Greenway District, Creek Week, and the Cultural Office of the Pikes Peak Region have joined forces once again to orchestrate the 4th annual Pikes Peak Litter Letter Project. Each year, our local Litter Letter Project produces a unique piece of sculptural art that is constructed with trash collected from public lands and waterways during Creek Week. Modeled after the national Litter Letter Project, and with permission to use their logo and concept, our local Litter Letter Project is a fun and inspiring annual event that signals the official start of Arts Month. It’s also a wonderful cross-sector collaboration between the Arts, Outdoor Recreation, and Environmental sectors that benefits the entire region!

The community is invited to participate in several clean-up sessions throughout our local trails and lands during National Public Lands Day (Sept. 25) and in coordination with our local Creek Week cleanups (Sept. 25 – Oct. 3). Participants will gather litter at several designated sites and then fill giant letters made from recycled metal that spell a different word each year. Our past words have been INSPIRE (2018), PRISTINE (2019), and RESILIENT (2020). This year’s word is: RESPECT.

Interested in “adopting” a letter to fill with your Creek Week Cleanup Crew? Email creekweeksoco@gmail.com for more information.

The litter letters, constructed by local nonprofit Concrete Couch, will be on display throughout the month of October in celebration of Arts Month. Well-sited on a berm, just off Cimarron Street, east of I-25 and south of America the Beautiful Park, the art piece is also visible from the adjacent trail.

On Friday, October 1st at 4:00PM, just before the start of First Friday, there will be a dedication ceremony for the 2021 Litter Letter art piece. The dedication event is free and open to the public, and will feature brief remarks by project partners and community leaders. Light snacks and refreshments will be provided, as well as live musical entertainment courtesy of the Curbside Culture program.

Following the dedication event, everyone is invited to celebrate the start of Arts Month 2021 by participating in the October First Friday Art Walks from 5-8PM along the Avenue Creative Circuit in Downtown Colorado Springs, Old Colorado City, and Manitou Springs. Throughout the month of October, the local community is also invited to support our Litter Letter Project though a special social media campaign on Instagram, by using the hashtag #PikesPeakLitterLetters to show us how you recreate responsibly, and RESPECT the outdoors.

Media inquiries and questions about the project should be directed to Andy Vick at andy@CulturalOffice.org.

Dragon Theatre Productions is a community-inclusive theatre program of Imagination Celebration that welcomes anyone who can make the performance commitment.

Dragon Theatre has first and foremost been about creating community – making a space for people to feel welcome, supported, from all walks of life, to create nonjudgmental art together. We worked hard to find ways that we can safely come together again in a way that makes sense across our very diverse team. Last year, we did this through a zoom performance, and this year with small original scenes custom tailored for each actor's needs and give some more in person options this year, in ways that are safe and make sense for that team.

All of our short films had the theme of Outer Space through a very special collaboration with The Space Foundation, and we are excited to share with you our performances!

We will do a live screening on October 9 at 3 p.m. at the East Library Community Room. Please note that masks will be required to attend the event. Space Costumes are welcome!

We will also host a virtual screening on Youtube here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2PX-D6Y9LUw 

The films will also be available afterward on our Vimeo channel: https://vimeo.com/channels/dragontheatreproductions

Our shows this year are:

'Anderous Cluster' by Phillip Kirks
'First Contact' by RP Bowman
'Why Today' by Weston Krueger
'Space Mission: Recover the Cosmo Crystal' by Angie Gerholdt

Chromesthesia is a form of synesthesia where sound causes a person to experience color, shape, and movement, in addition to the emotional reactions we have to music.

Cottonwood Center for the Arts has invited artists to create and share their own interpretation of Chromesthesia, based around these musical works: Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2 by Franz Liszt OR Scheherazade, Op. 35: I. The Sea and Sinbad’s Ship by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov. The two composers were known to disagree about which colors matched musical keys.

We invite you to come experience these musical pieces through the lens of the visual artist this coming First Friday from 5-8 p.m., and through the end of October during normal business hours.

Less than two weeks after the September 11th attacks, New Yorkers are still in shock. One of them, an editor named Joan, receives an unexpected phone call on behalf of Nick, a fire captain who has lost most of his men in the attack. He’s looking for a writer to help him with the eulogies he must present at their memorial services.

Nick and Joan spend a long afternoon together, recalling the fallen men through recounting their virtues and their foibles, and fashioning the stories into memorials of words. In the process, Nick and Joan discover the possibilities of friendship in each other and their shared love for the unconquerable spirit of the city. As they make their way through the emotional landscape of grief, they draw on humor, tango, the appreciation of craft in all its forms—and the enduring bonds of common humanity.

'The Guys' is based on a true story.

INDOOR SEATING POLICY: Please note that due to the ongoing COVID pandemic, and because of the intimate size of our theatre, only a limited number of tickets will be sold. Proof of vaccination or a recent (within three days) Coronavirus negative test is required for entry. Masks will be required indoors.

Theresa will share personal stories about her life and explain how her gift works. She will deliver healing messages to audience members and give people comfort knowing that their loved ones who passed are still with them, just in a different way. Purchasing a ticket does not guarantee a reading.

“The Experience” brings Theresa face-to-face with her fans, as she lets spirit guide her through the audience. A video display ensures everyone in the venue has an up-close-hands-on experience regardless of seat location. “The experience isn’t about believing in mediums. It’s about witnessing something life-changing,” says Theresa Caputo. “It’s like Long Island Medium live, witnessing first-hand spirit communication.”

The highly-rated show Long Island Medium follows Theresa’s life as a typical Long Island mom with one very big difference…she can communicate with the dead. Since she cannot “turn off” this gift, messages from departed loved ones can come through at any time, which lead to spontaneous readings with those she encounters. In addition to her television show, Theresa has appeared on such programs as “Jay Leno,” “Jimmy Fallon,” “Steve Harvey,” “Live with Kelly and Michael,” “Dr. Oz,” & “The Today Show.”

With his critically acclaimed fourth studio record, country superstar Brett Eldredge takes fans on an unforgettable outing with his new album Sunday Drive. Joined by GRAMMY-winning producers Daniel Tashian and Ian Fitchuk, he journeyed to Chicago’s intimate Shirk Studios, where the album came to life.

As a mental health advocate, Eldredge pulls from a personal place with the single “Good Day,” which brings the message of keeping a healthy mindset. “Good Day” follows the wistful, piano-driven lead single “Gabrielle,” which made its TV debut on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and has been called “a breath of fresh air” by Rolling Stone. Having added a seventh country radio No. 1 to his name with “Love Someone,” the critically acclaimed entertainer filled arenas on his first ever sold-out headlining The Long Way tour, which included performances of his Gold and Platinum-certified singles spanning four albums.

The tour will also include special opening act Morgan Evans who hit the top of the U.S. Charts with “Kiss Somebody.” The Australian born singer-songwriter is known for other hits including “Diamonds” and fan favorite “Day Drunk.”

“I’m bringing Morgan Evans on tour and I’ve been a big fan of his for a long time and he’s a crazy good talent and amazing guy. I just think he brings that mentality that I love, that positive energy and good heart and this tour is going to have a lot of heart,” said Eldredge.
