  • It's worse than pulling teeth trying to get the staff here to honor a certificate. I have tried numerous times in the course of the past six months to try and get into a class with a certificate I won, and I am constantly getting e-mails that the person responsible for such a thing will be in touch with me. But I never hear from her, only other people using her email who assure me she will respond as soon as she gets back from vacation or what have you. Apparently the person responsible is never at her desk, or just doesn't think I'm worthy of getting her attention. Thanks for nothing.
  • This is a delightful gem. It is an amazing museum. Wonderful collection and wonderful architecture. Well worth the visit.
  • I saw Sweeney Todd here and it was great and the theater is wonderful! I love the seats, the layout, everything. The art gallery is equally wonderful. The CSFAC is probably what I miss the most about Colorado Springs.
  • I never see a negative when it comes to art and I feel each institute has its own creative design. I feel that art is anything and it does depend on the persons creativity. This building is professional but the art really extracted itself from the walls to the heart. I like this one.
  • Really nice to have something like this in town. Multi exhibit displays with a multitude of dire rent styles and media. They do have a bar here too ;)
