Permanent Collection Reinstallation

The Fine Arts Center cares for about 17,000 works, including a significant body of art from the Colorado Springs region and the broader Southwest. In September 2025, the Fine Arts Center will present newly installed work across all the permanent collection galleries. The FAC has invited a group of guest curators to help organize this massive endeavor including Cassandra Atencio, artist, elder, and member of the Southern Ute Tribe; James M. Córdova, santero and Associate Professor of Art History, Latin American Art at the University of Colorado, Boulder; Josh T. Franco, artist and art historian; and Pat Musick, artist and educator.

Leading up to the reinstallation, the museum presents Work in Progress: Re-envisioning the Collection, an experimental series of collection-based installations designed to explore new ways of presenting and understanding the collection. Participate in the process by contributing your response to each installment through interactive activities. New works of art will be presented throughout the series in response to questions and ideas related to the upcoming reinstallation of the collection galleries.
