For over seven years the Pagosa Springs Arts Alliance volunteers have been working tirelessly towards the dream of developing a performing arts venue in Pagosa.
As anyone who has given their heart and time to a board knows, there is usually a core of people who keep the project going, with other volunteers moving in and out of the organization as their lives permit. Original board members remaining, Susan Neder and Dale Morris, are grateful for all who worked to help move the dream to the place it is today.
The Arts Alliance is currently welcoming new members to the board and is forming an advisory committee as we take exciting next steps in collaboration with Tim and Laura Moore, who have purchased commercial property on U.S. 160 with the goal of remodeling the building into a state of the art theatre space.
The Pagosa Springs Center for the Arts will be a centerpiece for community, a place to celebrate the arts, a place of learning and gathering. The venue will include gallery space, classrooms and practice space for dramatic arts, dance and voice, and meeting space.
There will be an open house for the public on Friday, Nov. 12, at 7 p.m. at the theatre (Old Paint Connection). Come on over and see the space, and dream the possibilities with us.
There will be entertainment to include John Graves, Johnny K, Larry Elginer, Bob Hemenger, Chad MacCluskey, Annie Orphans, Matt Brunson, The Music Boosters “Plaid” Singers, Tony Saladino, Randall Davis, Stephanie Jones, Master Giant Puppets and Children’s Theater activities. It’s an evening for all ages. We invite folks to dress in costume if they wish, to show their sense of fun, flair, and support for the arts in Pagosa.
