dancing to the music

In an era of declining investment in the arts, our small town high in the Colorado mountains is going out of its way to embrace arts and culture—building up our existing cultural organizations, giving voice to little-known artistic visionaries, and styling contemporary new festivals to breathe life into our creative culture.

Six new cities added to the top 20 list of arts vibrant cities in our second annual Arts Vibrancy Index, which ranks more than 900 communities across the country, examining the level of supply, demand, and government support for the arts in each city.
