Cottonwood Center for the Arts is a community impact organization located in downtown Colorado Springs. Cottonwood’s mission is to provide art instruction, space for artists to exhibit and sell their work, and an environment for a thriving arts community, open to all. They achieve this through a three-fold approach which encompasses Campus, Access, and Perception (CAP).
Campus at Cottonwood includes the building, alley, parking facilities, and neighborhood. The Center consistently initiates and pursues capital improvement projects which include new flooring, windows in artists’ studios, upgrades to heating and air conditioning systems, and beautification projects to make the building as welcoming and safe as possible.
Cottonwood has a vested interest in the development and success of the neighborhood and continues to develop programming and projects that will drive people to the neighborhood, ensure economic stability and growth, and support local businesses.
Access at Cottonwood means access to art for all in our community. There is no admission cost associated with visiting our facility. Cottonwood wants every person who has an interest to walk through the doors and experience art. Classes are kept as low-cost as possible to encourage growth and development.
Partnerships with organizations such as Finding Our Voices, TESSA, and PAGE allow the Center to share the voices of those who may not always be heard, and offer healing and support to those in the communit
