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.
On 12/30/2021, many residents in our neighboring communities of Superior and Louisville lost everything. These people were our friends, our family, our colleagues, our neighbors… Our hearts are broken by the reality that faces them now. With so many in pain, we wanted to do something to help.
The Firehouse Art Center and Jon Fukuda, a local artist and business owner, are coordinating a virtual Art Auction to help those affected. New Year’s Day is a time for new beginnings and we want to help those impacted move forward, while also sharing beauty and the healing nature of art. The auction will feature works by local artists with all proceeds (minus auction fees) going to the Boulder County Wildfire Fund (by Community Foundation Boulder County). Community Foundation Boulder County, in partnership with Government and nonprofit organizations will work to support the needs of the community as they emerge. (If you would prefer to send a check, their address is 1123 Spruce Street, Boulder CO 80302.)
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.
