Rockrimmon Library Community Arts Show - Call for Art!

Celebrate Arts Month with the Rockrimmon Library! Rockrimmon Library hosts a lot of art classes. We are hosting a month-long display of art created by our patrons. This gives our adult artists avenue to display their work, as well as an opportunity for community discussion. Last year, we had 50 pieces of art submitted and over 300 votes cast. Visit in October and vote for your favorite in the People's Choice award!

Each October, the Pikes Peak region celebrates Arts Month as a way to elevate the visibility and importance of arts & culture in our community. The official call to action during Arts Month is to “have at least one new cultural experience with family or friends during the month of October!”
