Best of the Springs 2012: Public Art
Gold: Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center
30 W. Dale St., 634-5581, csfineartscenter.org
The museum and theater are big draws to the FAC, but you don’t have to go inside to get a little culture. There’s a lot to look at, including “Portal,” one of several works by local artist Christopher Weed, “Fiesta Dancers,” a larger-than-life-size work by internationally known artist Luis Jimenez, and above the entrance, Boardman Robinson’s gorgeous deco mural.
Silver: Art on the Streets
Bronze: Air Force Memorial by Brandon Miera
