Since 1985, the Breckenridge Fine Arts Center has been a source of community pride for Breckenridge and the surrounding areas. The Center is committed to furthering the arts and artistic environment through education by focusing on two main objectives: to establish and maintain the finest in workshop facilities and instruction; and to provide high quality exhibits for the general public.
The diverse lectures, workshops, and exhibits appeal to a wide range of interests, thereby giving the artist in each of us a place to learn, to create, and to grow.
The Breckenridge Fine Arts Center invites visitors to share in its pursuit of artistic advancement. Enjoy the facility and all it has to offer as we continue inspiring, educating, and recognizing the artists of today and tomorrow.
