GLENWOOD SPRINGS,Colorado – As you may have heard, Colorado Mountain College’s Central Services offices will soon be consolidating at our new location at 802 Grand in downtown Glenwood Springs.

Because we are selling our current building at Ninth and Grand, we’ll also be relocating the CMC Gallery that has been housed there as part of the college’s ArtShare visual and performing arts resources. Unfortunately this relocation has triggered some inaccurate rumors, which we’d like to address.

Throughout our planning for the move, we have been examining how our award-winning gallery can continue its presence in our new location.

A gallery is a unique space, and requires thorough examination of lighting, security, public access and aesthetic considerations. Once we have a concrete plan for how we can best accommodate the gallery in our new home, we will be happy to share that with the community.

In addition to the gallery home we’re designing for that new space, we are in discussions with the library about a potential partnership that could result in additional viewing space for photography and the visual arts in their building downtown.

Colorado Mountain College exists to serve the educational and training needs of our students and our communities, and that includes photography and the visual arts.

We have a nationally renowned photography program based at our campus at Spring Valley, offer associate degrees in art or graphic design at several campuses, and provide numerous continuing education classes in the visual arts. Many of our arts faculty members are nationally known for their work in painting, ceramics and other media.

As part of our ongoing commitment to the arts within an educational context, for many years we have displayed international-caliber art and photography at the downtown gallery and at our campuses across north-central Colorado.

We look forward to continuing that legacy and taking CMC to a whole new level of effectiveness and service in our new Central Services home.

Stan Jensen is the president of Colorado Mountain College.
