Galleries of Contemporary Art


October 6–November 17, 2011

PLACES invites people from diverse backgrounds with unique experiences to share their ideas on place. The topics will vary, as the series explores the physical, psychological, emotional, and spiritual elements of place. We have experts, novices and storytellers from UCCS and the Colorado Springs community.
