An innovative movement is sweeping Fort Collins that is making empty storefronts in Downtown more aesthetically pleasing while providing local artists a place to call home.
The concept of a moving art lab and studio space for artists is popular in other countries, including the U.K.; this is the first in Colorado.
The goal of Art Lab is to actively create art experiences that put the gears of change in motion. It is something tangible that we can see, that enhances the lives of local artists, and continues to enhance downtown Fort Collins.
Art Lab Fort Collins gallery space is open to the public Friday evenings and Saturday afternoons. Classroom, workshop and performance space is available by appointment on a first-come, first-serve basis. You can find the Art Lab at its current location: 140 W. Mountain Ave. You can find the Art Lab at its newest location: 239 Linden St.
