Colorado Springs Fine Arts
FINE ARTS CENTER Museum Free Days – Museum free days are offered the third Friday of each month with hands-on art activities from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Smith Family Gallery. The goal of museum free days is to provide access to the FAC’s general admission offerings to the widest possible audiences in the Pikes Peak region. Museum Free Days, as a part of the FAC’s other free and reduced-fee programs (such as scholarship programs at Bemis, and special military discounts through the Blue Star Theaters and Blue Star Museums programs), make an important impact in our community. We believe that a strong arts and culture presence is essential for a healthy community. GE Johnson Construction Company, the Pikes Peak Community Foundation, and the Kirkpatrick Family Fund have come alongside the Fine Arts Center to underwrite monthly free days at the museum. Museum Free Days require underwriting to pay for the costs of running the museum. Since the Fine Arts Center receives virtually no government funding, it is not able to offer free admissions without generous underwriting and support. 10:00 a.m. Free to the public

Performance: Stand-Up Comedy with Jim Breuer – Named one of Comedy Central’s “100 Greatest Stand-Ups of All Time,” Breuer is one of the most recognizable comedians in the business, known for his charismatic stage antics, dead-on impressions, and family-friendly stand-up. During his four years on SNL, Breuer quickly became a fan-favorite for his original character “Goat Boy” and his dead-on impressions of actor Joe Pesci. Following his success on SNL, Breuer starred alongside Dave Chappelle in the cult favorite film “Half Baked.”7:30 p.m., SaGaJi Theatre, inside the Fine Arts Center, 30 W.
