Story

October is Arts Month in the Pikes Peak region This October, arts & culture takes center stage in Colorado Springs and across the Pikes Peak region, as our community celebrates Arts Month 2020! Despite the challenges of COVID-19, the seventh annual Arts Month celebration promises to be one of the biggest and best ever. To celebrate, we have created a curated route to experience 2020/2021 Art on the Streets! Art on the Streets celebrates the power of art in public places while turning the streets of Downtown Colorado Springs into a yearlong outdoor sculpture gallery. We highly recommend stopping throughout the route to view and enjoy the art, To learn more about each piece, use the free Otocast mobile app to hear commentary from the artists themselves!
