History of the Center for the Arts Crested Butte
By the year 1985, a group of passionate residents started to raise money to build a community arts center. Two short years later, they raised up to about $425,000, thus the old country road maintenance garage was renovated into today’s 6,000 square feet Center for the Arts facility. It houses 215 seats, with a stage, lobby and art gallery. There are two dressing rooms as well. The said place was incorporated as a Colorado Non-Profit organization by December of 1986. By the following year, it was granted with an IRD non-profit status.
