Impressions | 03.11.23 – 05.06.23
The first collected artwork at the Arts Center was an outdoor corten steel sculpture by Chris Byars of Salida. The abstract, free-standing sculpture was garnered with money given by the Pueblo County Commissioners and the steel donated and rolled to specification by the CF & I Steel Corporation. This work set a standard to collect regional and contemporary art at the Arts Center. The Regional and Contemporary Collection focuses on contemporary artists from Colorado and the Southwest, and has steadily grown over the past ten years. The collection includes an impressive collection of indoor and outdoor sculptures, paintings, ceramics, prints and photographs, as well as a large number of works by such artists as Orlin Helgoe and John Suhay. Our generous donors such as Francis King, Mrs. Helen Thatcher White, Mahlon and Maylan T. White have built this collection. More recently, in 2015, Charles and Jeanette Gilchrist White donated their collection of contemporary southwestern art consisting of nearly 100 pieces.
