A Celebration of Art and Nature

The arts take center stage in this iconic mountain town in late September, with two premier events and a celebration of the arts for all ages. Leading up to Art for the Sangres is Alla Prima Westcliffe, a seven-day paint-from-life event that culminates in a juried show and sale from 4 to 6 p.m. Sept. 27. The artist named best of show will receive an invitation to the 2020 Art for the Sangres. Arts Hullabaloo, Sept. 27-29, showcases all things artistic with three-day celebration of the visual, performing and musical arts, including demonstrations and special events for children.
