Cottonwood’s mission is to engage the Pikes Peak Region in art through learning, exhibits, and performances while hosting a diverse and creative community of workspaces for artists.
Our vision is to create an environment for a thriving arts community, leaving a legacy of arts, culture, and beauty to future generations.
Because Art Matters.
● Recognizing that art is a business and a cultural necessity
● Maintaining a diverse community that is open and welcoming
● Encouraging innovative thinking and action to alter the script and become an important model to the arts community
Additional seating, landscaping, and shade structures in our developing outdoor courtyard space so it can be enjoyed by patrons, performers, teachers, and artists.
We are always open to meeting individuals interested in volunteering for our board.
Cottonwood currently includes a diverse community of 107 artists ranging from 20 years of age to 88.
“Cottonwood Center for the Arts is a collective of amazing local artists like no other group in the Colorado Springs area...always welcoming, constantly creating, and a pillar of strength in our lovely downtown area.” — Pamela Quarles
