In 2007, when the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center significantly increased its footprint with an expansion, it was overshadowed by the expansion at the Denver Art Museum. But many architecture critics actually preferred the work by David Tryba to that of Daniel Libeskind in Denver—form does not compete with function here. The resulting space is ideal for showcasing a collection featuring Georgia O'Keeffe, Dale Chihuly, and a significant Native American collection. There's a top-flight performing arts venue here as well. The focus of changing exhibits is squarely on local artists. Expect to spend about 1 to 3 hours here.
