HISTORY


​​Fremont Center for the Arts was founded in 1947 and has the distinction of being the oldest privately run art center West of the Mississippi River, and our building is listed in the National Resister of Historic Places.

Our building was built in 1933 for the U.S. Post Office.  In 1989, the Board of Fremont County Commissioners purchased the grand old building and arranged for the Fremont Center for the Arts to lease it with an option to purchase. In January 1992 the FCA moved from their small original building just south of Royal Gorge Blvd into their present location, and completed payment on the price set by the county. The deed was recorded on August 8, 2000.  

The main gallery features rotating exhibits, and a designated Permanent Collection Gallery displays part of the permanent collection, which is rotated throughout the year. Other multipurpose spaces on the lower level are used for classrooms, exhibits, performances, and workshop space.

The FCA library houses a collection of over 300 books dealing with art history, the lives and works of artists as well as books on art techniques. The Gift Shop displays a fine collection of local artists’ fare and is filled with unusual gifts. The building is handicap accessible and has a patio on the west side with lovely trees and a Sculpture Garden on the east side.

Located in "Historic Downtown Cañon City," FCA is across the street from the Cañon City Library, and within walking distance of the Cañon City History Museum, and the Prison Museum.
