Meet Our October Member of the Month: Tim Whalen

Why did you become members of the Fine Arts Center?

Simple: I love to look at beauty

When did your interest in the arts begin?

Well, I can remember being no older than three years old and coloring away on scrap paper.

What has been one of your favorite experiences at the FAC?

Stephen Batura’s exhibition A Reservoir of Occurrences (2016) is a favorite. I love his mix of realism creatively interpreted in various media and across time.

What is your favorite work of art at the FAC?

I have many “favorites;” Olla– a ceramic by an unknown artist; the woodblock prints by Gustave Baumann; Taos Peak during Snowstorm by Walter Ufer; June #1 by Joseph Henry Sharp; Aspen Forest by Joseph Henry Sharp; and Earl Biss’ work. Ok, I’ll stop.

What else do you do for fun in Colorado Springs?

I enjoy the outdoors! Biking, hiking, backcountry and cross country skiing, rock climbing, yoga and more.
