Out of an abundance of caution, and to limit the potential spread of COVID-19, the City of Fort Collins is acting on direction from state leadership and public health partners and has closed all cultural facilities. We are working with state and local officials to determine a plan for reopening and will communicate details as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience as we navigate this unprecedented time.
