Statement of Purpose: In 2013, Foothills Art Center (FAC) celebrates its 45th anniversary. Housed in two buildings on the National Register of Historic Places, FAC is known for showcasing diverse exhibitions in a unique setting located in the heart of downtown Golden, CO. Continuing our mission to “lead and inspire the community through art, education and cultural excellence”, FAC’s recent facility renovations have allowed us to host several highly exclusive shows such as 2012’s Chihuly Venetians: From the George R. Stroemple Collection and 2013’s Edgar Degas: The Private Impressionist, Works on Paper by the Artist and His Circle. Furthermore, new walls and hardwood floors throughout the gallery will increase the aesthetic experience of visitors who come to our premier exhibitions. Exhibits showcase artists of regional, national and international renown, featuring traditional and contemporary artwork. Art classes are available for people of all ages and abilities, and the FAC Gift Gallery offers high quality, affordable works by Colorado artists, including jewelry, ceramics, glass, paintings and much more. Hours: Tuesday - Saturday, 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Sunday, 1:00 - 5:00 p.m. Closed Mondays
