"MOMA of the Mountains" Opens in Colorado Springs

August 7, 2007 By: Dan Butcher Travel Agent

The Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center (FAC) opened August 4 after a $28.4 million transformation to better display one of the largest compilations of Native American and southwestern art in the country, a $2 million collection of Dale Chihuly glass (one of the largest in the world), and American art by John Singer Sargent, Georgia O'Keeffe, John James Audubon and Robert Motherwell. The two-story, 48,000-square-foot expansion complements the original 1936 building, which has housed the FAC for the past 70 years and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Last weekend, the grand opening festivities were attended by Thomas Hoving, the former director of New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art; artist and filmmaker John Waters; and Broadway legend Joel Grey.
