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 permanent collection pieces which are rotated throughout the year. Other multipurpose spaces on the lower level are used for classrooms, exhibits, performances, and workshop space.
During the summer months (June, July, August & September) FCA features Jazz Downtown every First Friday in Macon Plaza. Every Second Saturday, is Shakespeare in the Park (June, July and August). For the most current information on classes and exhibits visit the FCA facebook page, Fremont Center for the Arts or website http://www.fremontarts.org.
