What we do…

The Firehouse Art Center inspires cultural awareness and human connection by providing
life enhancing experiences through art exhibitions, art education and cultural events.

 

The Firehouse is a non-profit art center committed to exhibiting thought provoking art created by local, regional and national artists. Through our no fee admission gallery and our outreach art classes taught at no cost to under resourced areas of the community, we strive to bring the healing nature of art to all.

Online and Silent Auction

Catrina Auctionauctria.events/catrina2021

Auction opens for bidding on October 9th at 12pm. Bidding ends on Monday, October 18 at 5pm.

The name Catrina refers to the Calavera Catrina – a 1910–1913 zinc etching by the Mexican printmaker, cartoon illustrator and lithographer José Guadalupe Posada. She is offered as a satirical portrait of those Mexican natives who, Posada felt, were aspiring to adopt European aristocratic traditions in the pre-revolution era. La Catrina has become an icon of the Mexican Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead.  Each year, local artists paint representaions of La Calavera Catrina to raise money for the Firehouse’s programs, exhibits and events.

Where do the proceeds for the Catrina Auction go?

The funds raised support free art education provided to marginalized communities. Proceeds also support art exhibits, providing artist stipends so that artists can concentrate on creating, rather than selling. Your bids support art in your community and make Longmont a more creative and better place for us all!

The Firehouse Art Center is Longmont’s leading contemporary art center featuring national and local artists with over a dozen exhibitions a year. A cornerstone of the Longmont Creative District, we offer educational programs, events and membership programs to support creativity for all. Our goal is to raise cultural awareness and understanding of the arts in the regional community.

The Firehouse Art Center is open for weekday appointments, and to walk ins Saturdays and Sundays.  We currently require all individuals to wear masks while inside the gallery.
