Cottonwood is free to visit! Explore two floors of studios and art. Hold a special event with us in one of our beautiful galleries.
Cottonwood Center for the Arts is a nonprofit arts complex located in downtown Colorado Springs. Run out of a refurbished office building, Cottonwood holds gallery spaces, artist studios, and classrooms. Our diverse programming includes monthly First Friday events, popular wheel-throwing pottery classes, and calls for entry that allow artists from throughout the region to display their pieces in juried shows.
Cottonwood is more than just an arts organization. We promote the exploration of a creative life. Whether it's through the process of creating art or enjoying art as a patron in the community, we want everyone to have access to the highest quality arts and culture our fabulous city has to offer. Join us as we work to create a thriving arts district in downtown Colorado Springs as well as an environment for a thriving arts community, leaving a legacy of arts, culture, and beauty to future generations.
Whether you’re seeking a studio to conduct business or create, Cottonwood can offer you a space to fit your needs. We are a community of artists, designers, and creators who frequently collaborate. Give your creativity a boost with us!
