The Firehouse Art Center is now accepting applications for our 2021 exhibition calendar.

The Firehouse Art Center is Longmont’s leading contemporary art center featuring both national and local artists. Our beautiful National Historic Landmark building features two exhibitions spaces and over 1,000 square feet of space. In 2019 we exhibited 56 artists in 15 unique exhibitions. New exhibitions are installed almost every month. We focus on accessible contemporary art that engages curiosity and conversation. Admission to the Firehouse is free and serves over 10,000 visitors each year. We were voted the Best Art Gallery in East Boulder County, for 7 years in a row and the Times Call Readers Choice for Best Art Gallery 6 years in a row.

Our exhibitions committee consists of artists, art administrators, business professionals, curators and art collectors. Preference is given to submissions that are culturally relevant with a unique perspective and the ability to provide a diverse art experience. Cutting edge contemporary work and multi-disciplinary artists are strongly encouraged. Group exhibitions and curatorial proposals are welcomed, as well as solo exhibition proposals from established and emerging artists in all mediums.

The mission of the Firehouse Art Center is to raise cultural awareness and understanding of the arts in the regional community through classes for all ages, lectures, events, and visual art exhibits of regional and national artists. The Firehouse Art Center is the leading contemporary art space in downtown Longmont.

As a cornerstone of the Creative District, we exhibit thought provoking work in all mediums, including installation, film and performance art.
