Mancos is fast becoming an art destination. The town has been designated by Colorado Creative Industries as a downtown Creative district. This allows us to advertise, get training and we are now eligible for grants and other matters.
In our small town, we make, share, support and show all the art we can get our hands on! Mancos, the art capital of the West! We now have five galleries on Grand Avenue, plus the Painted Turtle and Willowtail Springs offering classes. Speaking of classes,
please check ou the Mancos School of the West (www.schoolofthewest.org) for all the infor
about classes and instrucftors.
Mancos Common Press - UPDATES
We got our grant from the Colorado State Historical Society, but the restoration began even before that. We envision the Press as a hub for letterpress classes and more. Visit usand check out Brad Goodell's mural on the side of the building. Also, a great article in Zumag about the Press!
